The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, named for the all-aluminum racing engine developed in the late 1960s and used in a handful of regular-production 1969 Camaros, made its debut at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show on February 9th. Planned to launch at the beginning of 2012, it features a 6.2L supercharged V-8 LSA engine, a 6 speed manual transmission, and magnetic ride along with several other new features that makes it the highest performing and most technologically advanced car developed in its class. Its estimated launch is set for early 2012.
Sporting beauty and brains, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1’s design is entirely functional while providing an elegant and powerful display. It uses electric power steering and Magnetic ride Control to combine the speed and precision needed to match top lap times on road-racing circuits with the safety and driving dynamics of a town car.
The LSA 6.2L supercharged engine within the 2012 Camaro produces an estimated 550 horsepower and 550lb.-ft. of torque, making it the fastest Camaro ever released. Built on GM’s all-aluminum, small-block V-8, the LSA incorporates heat-resistant aluminum-alloy cylinder heads and an intercooled supercharged system to support a smooth and comfortable ride.
As a complete high-performance car, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 supports several new features that make it the highest performing car in its class. Technical highlights:
