The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at the 2011 Chicago Auto It is the highest-performing Camaro and the most advanced car ever developed in its The new ZL1 continues the momentum of Camaro, it into an entirely new realm of performance technology.

It is planned to at the beginning of 2012.

2012 Camaro ZL1.

Motivated by a V-8 engine producing an estimated 550 (410 kW), the Camaro ZL1 be the fastest Camaro ever by Chevrolet. And more than power, the ZL1 features technologically and highly developed chassis and systems that help it balanced, track-ready handling and power to complement its high output. Rigorous development of the ZL1 is and official estimates of the car’s will be released later in as testing nears completion.

ZL1 is about high-tech performance and and is a type of car no one has ever brought to segment previously,” said Scheidt, vice president of marketing. “It’s the most advanced Camaro ever, so chosen a name from the elite and exclusive Camaro in

The ZL1 name is derived from the racing engine of the same which was developed in the late and installed into a handful of 1969 Camaros. Only 69 built with the engine, but achieved mythical status enthusiasts, as they represented the in Camaro performance – until The 2012 ZL1 model is designed to be a leap forward for the Camaro, a new level of performance capability to the

The central goal of the car’s was creating something new – a Camaro to reach optimal lap times on top circuits and excellent driving on the street. To achieve that engineers evolved many of the Camaro’s systems, as well as new technologies such as electric steering and Magnetic Ride the world’s fastest-reacting suspension

Camaro ZL1’s design and supports its performance mission. than using decorative ZL1 is visually differentiated from current Camaro models elements vital to the car’s capabilities.

“Everything about the design is directly related to its and serious performance, especially said Ed Welburn, vice Global Design. “Our goal was to execute that design with beautifully forms, creating an imposing, persona. Function becomes the The intent is a car that delivers on the it projects.”

Major elements of the ZL1’s are a new front fascia and hood air extractors, designed in tandem to aerodynamic downforce to aid handling. The hood includes a signature section constructed of carbon and rendered in satin black New rocker panels, wide 20-inch wheels and exhaust portray the car’s handling and

The ZL1 badge appears on the grille, and the brake calipers, all key areas the technology within.


Supporting the dynamic track and performance of the ZL1 is the LSA 6.2L supercharged which will produce an 550 horsepower (410kW) and 550 lb.-ft. of (677 Nm), with features for the Camaro. Built on legendary all-aluminum, small-block V-8 the LSA features an intercooled supercharger premium heat-resistant aluminum-alloy heads and other details to ensure its exceptional performance is with smoothness and refinement. and design elements that to the LSA’s performance include:

• Balanced, lightweight reciprocating

• High-strength hypereutectic pistons

• Eaton supercharger with rotors

• Piston oil squirters.

the Camaro ZL1 uses electric steering, the engine does not a conventional hydraulic power pump on its accessory drive This enhances performance, no engine power is used to a steering pump pulley.

ZL1 is a complete high-performance car, not a Camaro with more Key technical highlights include:

– The high-performance Tremec TR-6060 manual is matched with the LSA It is the “MG9” version of the transmission, a higher torque capacity. It is with a dual-mass flywheel and clutch for easy operation and smoothness.

A new, shorter-throw actuates the gear changes.

– ZL1 is equipped with a dual-mode system, which alters the level and character in response to rpm. First used on the Corvette, and specifically tuned for ZL1, the dual-mode exhaust give the car a signature sound.

Drivetrain – It is revised with a driveshaft and rear axle featuring a larger and stronger iron differential housing, axles and heavy-duty limited-slip This patent-pending system is to ensure that ZL1’s power is delivered smoothly to the

Chevrolet Camaro

Suspension – The suspension features revised tuning and the inclusion of Magnetic Ride Control. Magnetic Ride system include driver selectable (Tour and Sport) tailored for the style of driving. It uses magneto-rheological science to produce damping with the highest of precision, enabling body optimized for excellent performance in driving as well as track

This technology appears on a small roster of some of the finest performance cars. chassis elements are redesigned to the car’s high-performance limits. stabilizer bars have links repositioned outboard of the arms.

This makes the more effective in controlling roll in turns, with response to driver commands.

and Steering – Camaro ZL1 features an track-capable braking system, in conjunction with experts Brembo. The large 14.6-inch mm) two-piece front rotors six-piston calipers; the 14.4-inch mm) rear rotors have calipers. ZL1 marks the entry of a new power steering system to

It is being developed to ensure control and feedback to the driver, greater variability of effort for driving.

Exterior – ZL1’s from the front is the redesigned and aluminum hood with a carbon fiber insert. The includes a front splitter and new fog lamps. The fog lamp area air intakes designed for brake

The hood features front-mounted air that direct air precisely the car. Visually, this section, in satin black fiber, communicates the car’s intent as a visual contrast to the exterior color. Functionally, the air is a key in connecting airflow closely to the creating aerodynamic downforce. The fiber center section the mass of the hood. High-intensity (HID) headlamps and fog lamps are

The rear of the car includes a diffuser and also functional elements enhance the car’s aerodynamics.

and Tires – New-design, 20-inch aluminum wheels, which are than the 20-inch wheels on the Camaro SS, are used with new Supercar F2 ties developed for the ZL1.

Interior – ZL1 is tailored for high-performance The front seats feature suede inserts. Other include a redesigned steering alloy pedals, Head-Up with unique performance and the “four-pack” auxiliary gauge featuring a boost readout.


All of the Camaro exterior will be offered with the but black is the only interior The unique exterior features are with a black center on the hood. Inside, the Camaro ZL1 has leather seats with inserts and ZL1 logos embroidered on the headrests.

Microfiber suede is as an accent on the instrument panel, a richer look to the interior. The ZL1 include the same content as the 2SS package and include the following new or features:

• Six-way power and passenger seats

• Unique panel and door panel and ZL1-logo sill plates

• wheel audio controls Bluetooth capability

• Wireless and USB-port

• Boston Acoustics audio system
