2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Spied High Altitude testing in the Wild (Video)

The 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 will go on sale sometime at the end of this year, but why wait to see it on the road when we recently caught and spied it high altitude testing in the Rocky Mountains?

Here are the facts that we know:

The 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 will have a supercharged monster V-8 packing 640 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. That’s not quite up to the Dodge Hellcat’s 707 horsepower, but it easily exceeds the current Mustang GT350’s horsepower.

We also know that the new ZL1 will be lighter than the outgoing model because the current Camaro is 200 pounds lighter than the previous model, according to Chevy.


The 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 will come with either a six-speed manual transmission or a (wait for it) 10-speed automatic. Also, the new car comes with GM’s full line of performance tech including  magnetorheological dampers, electronically controlled limited-slip differential and the company’s performance traction management system.

Of course you can’t see any of these features in the video above but you can see the car on the road. Too bad that there was too much traffic and wind noise to capture the car’s exhaust note but Nathan and Brian did a great job in hunting down this ultimate new Camaro. Please let us know what you think of the new car in the comments below.
