Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Chevrolet knew that the Camaro platform could handle more than 426 HP while still delivering fantastic cornering speeds and world-class handling. So it was only natural that engineers started developing performance versions as soon as the new generation hit the streets in 2010. the first of those was the great Camaro ZL-1 introduced in 2012 and sold until 2015 (via Chevrolet).
The ZL-1, as you know, was a remarkable 427 V8-powered drag beast from 1969. Its 2012 counterpart follows the same formula. Chevrolet took the biggest and most powerful engine GM had – a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 – and put it into the Camaro. The result was a 580 HP street terror. It had a highly advanced Magnetic Ride suspension, Goodyear performance tires, Brembo brakes, and lots more. The 2012 Camaro ZL-1 was not the one trick pony its 1969 predecessor was. It was rather a pure sports car that could put the Porsche 911 to shame and outhandle and outrun much more expensive and exotic cars.
