“The Camaro ZL1 is designed to excel at everything,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development. “It’s a 2+2 coupe offering incredible performance – acceleration, handling and braking – with the highest levels of technology and perfect chassis damping, making it suitable for everyday driving. It will compare well to any sports coupe, at any price and in any setting.”

Power is supplied by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 churning out an estimated 640 horsepower and can be equipped with either a six-speed manual transmission with active rev matching or a 10-speed automatic. Standard equipment includes Driver Mode Selector and dual-mode exhaust. The Camaro ZL1’s interior will feature standard Recaro seats and sueded flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob. Other standard performance equipment includes 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires, and Brembo brakes.

“The design supports the Camaro ZL1’s exceptional performance and does so with compelling style,” said John Mack, Camaro exterior design manager. “From every angle, the elements coalesce to give the car a purposeful, super aggressive attitude.”

The new Camaro ZL1 is leaner and meaner than ever. The new ZL1 weighs 200 pounds less than its predecessor and has 60 more horsepower and 80 more pound-feet of torque than the outgoing fifth generation ZL1. At this time, performance numbers haven’t been announced.
