Chevrolet Drops The Bomb – Camaro ZL1 – rpmGo.com

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

After a significant period of anticipation, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was finally released and promises to worth the wait. Unveiled today at the Chicago Auto Show, the car is powered by an impressive 6.2-liter supercharged LSA that churns 550 hp / 410 kW @ 6,100 rpm and 550 lb.-ft / 677 Nm @ 3,800 rpm. Unfortunately we can’t offer you any info about top speed or the 0-62 mph sprint time as Chevrolet didn’t said anything about them, but I’m sure they will anytime soon.

In addition to this very impressive engine, the new ZL1 features a bundle of technologies, like the Magnetic Ride Control, along with the vented carbon fiber hood insert and the updated aerodynamics. The front suspension of this muscle car consists of a double-ball-joint, multi-link strut, direct-acting stabilizer bar while the back one sports progressive-rate coil springs and a 4.5-link independent unit with progressive-rate coil over shocks and a stabilizer bar.

To stop efficiently, the Camaro ZL1 packs Brembo brakes with two-piece discs (ventilated) for the front wheels and one-piece rear rotors and 6-piston fixed aluminum calipers on the front and 4-piston calipers for the back.

As far as the entertainment offerings are concerned, the ZL1 comes with a Boston Acoustics audio system and Bluetooth support. In addition, it features a rear camera system and rear parking assist.
