There isn’t any better way to describe it. Sure, I could double down on some words to tell you some of the features in the title or call this car something that is a bit clever, but it really is awesome. The car I’m talking about is the newest of the performance models in the Chevrolet Camaro lineup, the Camaro ZL1. This car has been called a four-seat Corvette Z06 which should tell you most of what you want to know about this gorgeous, powerful and sport inspired vehicle that’s poised to head out and give you the ride you want.
The new ZL1 shows up with the Corvette features you’re looking for. This beautiful beast uses a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine to give you the power you need and the ride you’re after. As a new arrival, many of these new models are still in their break in period of 1,500 miles right now, but soon, these cars will be on the track and roads tearing up the place, causing havoc. This is a car that’s active and ready to hit the road with a drive like the Camaro SS and the equipment of the Corvette to give you everything you want to enjoy.
As the sixth-generation of this car comes to the market, this performance version makes for an impressive way to celebrate the longevity of the Chevy Camaro. This car used to be a heavy sports car to drive, but now it feels light and quick and ready to give you the performance that will take off past the heavy competition. The massive 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque are what you need when you want to be the first around the lap with the capability to take the checkered flag at the end of the race.
This new ZL1 is the most powerful production Camaro in history and not only do customers have the new Tri-Y headers that offer improved airflow, but you can choose from two transmissions to have the shifting you want. The first is the six-speed manual which puts the shifting in your hands and offers you the opportunity to have the ride you need while the other is the new ten-speed automatic which is built for smoother shifts and a more dynamic shift range for you to have the feeling you want on the road. This new ten-speed automatic can make the ZL1 a great road trip car, but why would you waste all that power trolling the interstate?
One reason to allow this to be the car you take on road trips is to show it off. Imagine taking the ZL1 across the country with stops at various tracks where you can show off the amazing performance of this power monster. The ZL1 has made the lap a t Nurburgring in 7:37.40 which beast the Ford Shelby GT350R, Pagani Zonda F and the Koenigsegg CCX around the loop. This make for an amazing performance that will give you everything you can think of.
If you’re looking for a drag monster, this beauty can do it for you. This car can hit sixty mph in 3.5 seconds and making this one of the quickest. The ZL1 is raw, visceral and amazing when on the road. The true way to enjoy this beauty is to get behind the wheel and drive, but only if a stop at the track is on the agenda for the day. The new Camaro ZL1 from Chevrolet is simply awesome and is a car that you’ll love to drive whenever you get the chance to do so.
