The potent ZL1 is the high-performance variant of the reborn, retro-flavored Camaro. Also available in summer-friendly convertible form, the coupe combines aggressive looks and a 580 horsepower supercharged V8 with surprisingly good handling dynamics and ride quality thanks to GM’s trick Magnetic Ride Control system.
For the latest model year, the Camaro ZL1 benefits from a subtle nip-and-tuck that includes single-piece taillights and a new spoiler. Also new is an available MyLink infotainment system that can be outfitted with navigation functionality – a first for the Camaro.
ZL1 traces its strong presence back to the legendary 1969 production ZL1 models. Today’s ZL1 lives up to that iconic name as the most technologically advanced Camaro. Tested on some of the most rigorous tracks around the world, including world-renowned Nürburgring, where it ran a 7:41.27 lap.
Built to be track capable, one tap of the accelerator will immediately reveal why it’s like nothing you’ve ever driven before. You’ll feel the intensity of an all-aluminum 6.2L supercharged engine that delivers 580 horsepower† and 556 lb.-ft. of torque.
But the ZL1 doesn’t just boast unbridled power. That’s just half of the equation. There’s also Magnetic Ride Control™, world-class braking and a 4-wheel independent suspension. Influenced by the Corvette, Performance Traction Management (Coupe model only) lets you choose from five performance settings that adjust for ambient and track conditions, driver experience and vehicle familiarity. Behind it all is the confidence of knowing you’ve got the support of Chevrolet Complete Care.
They’re all performance refinements you can’t get on a Mustang Shelby GT 500 and another reason why you’ll be hard-pressed to find a production car that can match the Camaro ZL1.
