Chevrolet Camaro enters the realm of advanced performance technology

The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the highest-performing Camaro and the most technically advanced car ever developed in its class.

The new ZL1, debuted at the Chicago Auto Show, continues the momentum of Camaro, propelling it into an entirely new realm of leading-edge performance technology.

It will be built at the award-winning Oshawa Assembly Plant and is planned to launch at the beginning of 2012.

Motivated by a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine producing an estimated 550 hp, the Camaro ZL1 will be the fastest Camaro ever offered by Chevrolet.

And more than just power, the ZL1 features technologically advanced and highly developed chassis and suspension systems that help it deliver balanced, track-ready handling and braking power to complement its high engine output. Rigorous development of the ZL1 is ongoing, and official estimates of the car’s capabilities will be released later in 2011, as testing nears completion. 

Major elements of the ZL1’s design are a new front fascia and hood with air extractors, designed in tandem to create aerodynamic downforce to aid handling.

The car’s hood includes a signature centre section constructed of carbon fibre and rendered in satin black finish.

New rocker panels, wide tires, 20-inch wheels and exhaust tips portray the car’s handling and power.
