The stunning Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 0

Chevrolet, who is owned by General Motors, is set to release the brand new Camaro ZL1 model. From the official images, the car looks like it will take the North American car market by storm.

For those of you who may not know, the Camaro ZL1 will take on the likes of the spectacular Ford Mustang. The rivalry has been going on for a number of decades. The luxury Cadillac CTS-V will act as a main rival.

6.2 litre

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 contains a 6.2 litre engine which is a supercharged and has eight cylinders. It is able to achieve 580 BHP at 6,000 RPM. Officially the car is able to reach 0 – 60 MPH in just 3.9 seconds. The car’s top speed is a staggering 184 MPH.

Induction kit

The engine’s induction system is quite sophisticated coming with dual inlet paths, a better performing air filter along with a better improved supercharging housing airflow. This brings about both great fuel efficiency and a wonderful performance.

There is an advanced aerodynamic package built onto the car. This includes a carbon fibre roof. An air extractor vent provides extra ventilation for the engine. The front splitter along with a taller lower grille makes the car one of the best performing on the road.

Price and MPG

The car’s price is said to be from $23,280 to £37,980. According to American units, the car will have a MPG range of 24 – 28 MPG which does make the car fairly economical.

Improvements

It will come with a six speed automatic transmission which comes with manumatic control. The car will also include a Tremic six speed manual transmission. The Camaro ZL1 becomes the first ever to receive electric power assisted steering. The steering itself does offer a wonderful engaging drive, with accuracy and tremendous feedback.

 

Inside the cabin

Inside the cabin, there are not too many changes. This was a good move by the company. A few features within the car have simply been touched up. This includes a head up display as well as a few Chevrolet badges on the door sills and headrests.

Unfortunately the car is not available here in the UK. We would love to see it arrive on the market.
