2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Detailed Specs Revealed

We’ve been teased with photos of Chevrolet‘s newest and meaning Camaro yet, the ZL1, but the manufacturer has been tight lipped on its complete specs…that is, until now. It seems that dealerships now have the full specs on the ZL1, with a leak getting posted on the Camaro5 forums revealing that it’ll be packing 580-hp and 556 lb-ft of torque in a 4120-lb body. It’s also worth noting that the Camaro ZL1 has already posted an impressive Nurburgring time of 7 minutes and 41 seconds. (See the video here).

Enthusiasts interested in the ZL1 will have a choice of nine colors (Black, Ashen Gray, Inferno Orange Metallic, Rally Yellow, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, Victory Red and Crystal Red Tintcoat) to choose from, two wheel options (five-spoke and 10-spoke) in a 20-inch sizing, and the option of either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. In addition to the standard four-pack console gauges seen in the existing Camaro SS, the ZL1 will also sport a boost gauge.

    I see you noticed they didn’t release all the details. Chevy is likely keeping this a secret, but a good guess would be under 3.9 seconds, because that’s the time given for the CTS-V.

    Modern dash with Navigation and automatic climate control please! For 2012 only 3 Chevrolet car models still don’t offer these features: Sonic, Impala, and Camaro, Why? European Sonic and Spark both do(automatic climate control), their your smallest cars? For around $50,000 these features should be standard!
    I speak for all cars!
