Arrow NEWS: Video: Camaro ZL1 gets seen, heard by Motor Trend

FRONT PAGE NEWS - VIDEO IN SECOND POST!

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - Click above to watch the video (Warning: Auto play)

Chevrolet
has called the Ford Mustang franchise's Boss 302 and Shelby GT500 and raised the stakes by one supercharger. The obvious aim of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is to silence all the critics who flame the Camaro for being slower than the 5.0-liter competition from Ford.

To cure their case of horsepower envy, Chevrolet threw a supercharged 6.2-liter LSA making more than 550 horsepower between the Camaro's fenders. That power theoretically puts it atop even the mighty GT500 in a straight line.

To make sure the Camaro could take down the handling-oriented Boss 302 as well, they cribbed the magnetic dampers from the Corvette ZR1 for the ZL1. All that effort should add up to not only the fastest Camaro ever built, but the best-handling, as well. We can't wait to get our mitts on the car, but in the meantime, we'll slake our curiosity by hearing the LSA briefly come to life in the video after the jump (Warning: Auto play).

Re: NEWS: Video: Camaro ZL1 gets seen, heard by Motor Trend

That does it. This spring, I am going to get a better video of my Camaro firing up. I made it and put it up on YouTube and in order to keep from totally blowing out the microphone, I didn't completely redline it. Yet people make dumb comments on YouTube about how it is lame because I didn't put it to the floor.



Now I definitely need to re-record it. I gotta keep up with what Chevy is doing!
