Geneva 2011: Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

Geneva 2011 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

Chevrolet brought its newest and most powerful version of the Camaro, the ZL1, to the Geneva Motor Show. The ZL1 has its heritage from 1969 when Chevrolet built the original Camaro ZL1, a performance monster originally intended for racing, featuring an all-aluminum engine displacing 427 cubic inches.

With a supercharged and intercooled 6.2 liter LSA V8 engine in the nose, the output comes 550hp together with 550 pound-feet of torque. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission using a dual-disc clutch. There’s also a dual-mode exhaust system that alters the sound level and character in response to engine rpm.

  1. I love this new Camaro and the ZR1 components they put in it, but I have sat in a few of the new Camaros and I dont like the feel of them, plus the blind spot is massive when you look over your shoulder.
