Camaro ZL1 SAE Rated @ 580 hp Officially

September 9th, 2011

580 HP Camaro ZL1

The supercharged V8 in the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is rated at 580 hp.

The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will not be anywhere near as rare as its 1969 namesake when it arrives during the first quarter of next year, but the most powerful production Camaro to date should deliver performance more than worthy of its model designation.

Camaro engineers on Thursday offered media members a preview of the upcoming Ford Mustang Shelby GT500-fighter, and the tale of the tape is impressive, especially in terms of grunt: The 6.2-liter, supercharged LSA V8 will make 580 hp at 6,000 rpm, and 556 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm, besting Chevrolet’s original targets for the engine’s output and bettering its efficiency in Cadillac’s CTS-V by 24 hp and 5 lb-ft.

Chevy Using Pink Camaro NASCAR Pace Car for Safety and Charity

September 4th, 2011

Chevrolet plans to do more with its NASCAR Camaro pace car than merely slow the field down. For the next two races at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway, a Camaro doused in pink to support breast cancer research will lead the field. As if the hue weren’t enough, when the safety car comes out, Chevrolet will donate $200 per lap to the American Cancer Society.
