2012 Camaro ZL1 As Fast As Porsche or Lamborghini? Afraid So.
All of the naysayers out there that think American cars are junk, think again. This stock Camaro ZL1 turned times at the Nordschleife last week that were right there with Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari, all for 60,000 USD. Even Jeremy Clarkson has a Corvette ZR1, after he laughed at...then drove it.

Real World Test Drive got a first look at the new Supercar from Chevrolet: The 580 horsepower Camaro ZL1. Grant Winter takes us to the Virginia International Raceway:





Lingenfelter Camaro ZL1 Tops 200 MPH! - Hot Rod Unlimited Episode 7
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, HOT ROD Editor In Chief David Freiburger drives the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Camaro ZL1 to 202 mph, making it the first 2012 ZL1 to exceed 200 mph. This very same ZL1 in the exact same configuration (save for wheels and tires and the rollcage) was also the first to run 10s in the quarter mile. The ZL1 Camaros were first delivered to the public in early April, making 580 hp from their supercharged, 6.2L, LSA engines. Within days of delivery, Lingenfelter had its ZL1 making 720 hp at 6,500 rpm and 650 lb-ft at 4,650 rpm, both measured at the rear tires. The performance parts are all from Lingenfelter: CNC-ported cylinder heads, a GT9 camshaft, a ported Supercharger cover, overdrive blower pulleys, a cold-air kit, 63-lb/hr fuel injectors, a voltage Booster for the fuel pump, a 160-degree thermostat, and tuning. The entire package, installed, is $11,495. Everything else on this manual-trans car is stock. The performance testing was done with 109-octane VP fuel and 15 psi Boost. On April 18, 2012, the Lingenfelter ZL1 ran 10.79 at 134.36 mph at Muncie Dragway in Indiana. That was on drag wheels and tires. On April 30, 2012, the car was delivered to the Continental Tire Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas. Shod with Continental Extreme Contact tires on the original ZL1 wheels, the Camaro was tested on the 8-1/2-mile oval. The three-lane surface is like a road rather than a race track, the turns are not banked, and there are a few elevation changes. During the top-speed run, Freiburger pulled 0.4 to 0.5 g at 190-plus mph in the sweeping turns, then held it down for nearly 40 seconds on the pull from 190 to 202.67 mph before lifting to avoid cresting a small hill at corner entry at 200-plus mph. The car had not reached terminal velocity. Conditions included a head/crosswind, ambient temperatures in the 90s, and a density altitude of 3,280 feet. The Camaro was aerodynamically stock except for some tape over the front brake-duct openings in an attempt to channel more air through the stock air-to-water Intercooler, as the water was reaching temps in the 250s during prolonged periods of WOT, leading to hot inlet air and reduced power. Naturally, the comments here will lead to the upcoming ¹13 Ford Mustang GT500, with claims of 200 mph capability in bone stock trim. A stock Camaro ZL1 will run 185 mph. Will the GT500 be faster than the Lingenfelter ZL1? Until someone shows up at the same track on the same day with both cars and a single driver, no one will know. Meanwhile, we present the first ZL1 to eclipse the double century mark. See more at Lingenfelter.com and HotRod.com.

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Track Test Drive & Muscle Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/Camaro/2012/zl1-coupe/ ?id=32972 Autobytel Road Test Editor T.J. Keon recently had the chance to test drive the all new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 on the street as well as on the track at Virginia International Raceway. The Camaro ZL1 sports a supercharged V-8 engine that makes 580 horsepower. Base price for the ZL1 is $54,095. On the road the Camaro ZL1 feels firm and planted, but the ride is not rough or harsh. In fact the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 could make for a great daily driver. The Alcantara lined seats and steering wheel feel great and are usually reserved for high end luxury cars. But make no mistake; the ZL1 was designed to kick-butt! One of the things that make the ZL1 special is the optional 20-inch lightweight track wheel. These black 10-spoke rims are made from forged aluminum for strength. The rims are wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Generation 2 tires sized P285/35ZR20 up front and P305/35ZR20 out back. A huge Brembo Brake package sits behind these sinister rims. Suspension chores are handled by the Magnetic Ride Control System. The shocks are filled with a magnetorheological fluid and the dampening levels are computer controlled and adjusted up to 1000 per second. This makes for a comfortable ride on the road and a more than capable ride on the track. The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is powered by a Supercharged Corvette engine dubbed the LSA. The 6.2 liter V-8 engine packs an Eaton Supercharger on top. Power output is 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft. of torque. The Supercharger provides plenty of torque at any RPM level so that the power is there whenever you want it! You can choose between a Hydra-Matic 6-Speed Automatic Transmission w/TAPSHIFT or Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. The Camaro ZL1 can run from 0-60 MPH in 4.0 seconds and can eclipse the ¼ mile in 12.0 seconds. Top speed for the ZL1 is 180 MPH. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway if you are wondering. On the road the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 pulls hard from any RPM thanks to the flat torque curve provided by the Supercharger. Practically every part on the Camaro ZL1 was designed to aid this Muscle Car in going fast. At just $54,095 the ZL1 can't be beat when you are talking high performance for the money. The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 sports the amount of technology and horsepower you would expect to find on a car costing 4 times at much.

Camaro Scosche Dash Kit Review
A quick overview of my install of the new Scosche Dash Kit for the 2010 - 2012 Camaro. I replaced my Metra kit with this and overall, I like it better so I'll be keeping it. The Good: * The install was MUCH easier than the Metra kit - basically plug and play (just follow the directions - not many wires to splice and there isn't another box you need to tuck under there. * Most importantly: the kit looks better than the Metra in my opinion, a little more like how a stock setup should have been for a 2010 Camaro (that old radio is UGLY and the metra was plain) * The touch screen controls work nice (although there's a little glare) and the steering wheel controls work like stock * Most of the car settings are supported and controlled within the touch screen (that's a separate unit for the Metra kit). The Bad: * The two pieces of the unit (face and bottom piece) are glued together and not all that well. It separated on me just a little. * Getting the head unit to fit right was a chore - had to screw the kit back in an out a few times and bend the brackets a bit to make it fit right. Even then, the gap at the top is a little more obvious than it should be. * The directions could have included some actual diagrams on how to get the center console / dash apart (instead of just text descriptions with part #s). * The speaker that produces the door chimes, blinkers, and back-up sensors is mounted somewhere inside the kit and sounds a little cheap * Doesn't come with Onstar support built in (probably to keep the cost down). As I write this, it's not available yet but should be shortly (CAMOSM is the model # I believe). Overall: 3.5 stars out of 5
