A RARE AND WINNING COMBINATION

The new ZL1′s combination of the very powerful but not overwhelming engine, balanced but not harsh suspension and refined but bold appearance makes this car a winner. Everything about this Camaro is confidence inspiring and breathtaking. The new ZL1′s power both accelerating and decelerating combined with an excellent ride and incredible handling is what makes this car a true dream to drive. Without a doubt, this car has all the right things to make it worthy of the ZL1 badge and will not dissappoint the car collector and the performance car enthusiast.

Will this car make it to a showroom floor near you? It’s possible. Details to make this car a reality are being worked out at the time of this writing, but if this 400 horsepower snake eater does indeed find it’s way to production and you want one, you’d better be fast. If this Camaro is given the go ahead for limited production by GMMG, a minimum of only 69 (to match the number of original 1969 ZL1 Camaros produced) will be made, or a maximum of 200-250 could be made depending on demand. If the plans for the production of this car fall through, keep in mind that most of what makes this Camaro tick has GM part numbers.

With first generation power and fourth generation technology, if this car is indeed produced by GMMG, it could be one of the greatest Camaros of all time and would make an excellent end of the fourth generation run.
