Chicago Auto Show video: The fastest ever production Chevy Camaro ZL1 debuts


Chevy today rolled out the fastest ever production Camaro at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show. The hottest and fastest version of the Chevy Camaro is called the ZL1, and it packs the Corvette’s LSA 6.2L supercharged engine which GM says produce an estimated 550 horsepower.

The Chevy Camaro ZL1 will hit the showroom floors as the most expensive and certainly the most powerful Camaro model when it goes on sale at the the beginning of 2012.

According to GM the car is designed to be a high-performance driver with such features as:

“* the LSA 6.2L supercharged engine will produce an estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW) and is matched with a six-speed manual transmission with a dual-disc clutch system.

* Magnetic Ride Control, and advanced materials – including a vented carbon fiber hood insert. Extensive aerodynamic development designed for high-performance driving.

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