Six months before its scheduled to head into production, Chevy has released some exciting new details about the performance of the Camaro ZL1.
Unveiled for the first time in Canada at the Camaro Homecoming, held next to the Oshawa Assembly Plant where all Camaros are produced, chief engineer Al Oppenheiser stated that it will make more power than the previously stated 550 figure, commenting that it will also top the 556-hp of the Cadillac CTS-V.
Helping put all that power to the ground will be the use of the Corvette ZR1’s Performance Traction Management system that can maximize the grip possible to deliver the fastest, most consistent lap times.
Not interested in rowing your own gears? That’s OK; the ZL1 will be available with an optional automatic transmission confirmed Oppenheiser who was there for the car’s unveiling.
Designed as a serious track machine, should the Boss 302 be scared?
