Vehicle Description

The Camaro ZL1 sits at the top of the Camaro lineup with its supercharged 6.2L V8 that’s been borrowed from the Corvette Z06. This particular Camaro has been extensively modified making 680 rear wheel horse power. With that much power under the hood, the Camaro ZL1 is a beast. Punch the pedal to the floor and you’re smacked in the face with sheer power, while your ears enjoy the melodic sounds of the supercharged V8 and the 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires send the power to the asphalt. Stock, the Camaro ZL1 will reach 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds.

No car with a nearly 4,000-pound curb weight should be able to take hairpin corners as well as the ZL1 does. Turn-in is violent and yanks you sideways with the force of a Mayweather right hook, thanks in part to the 285/30R20 tires up front. Getting out of the corner, however, must be done judiciously, given the Camaro ZL1’s tendency to slaughter the rear tires. Thankfully, with traction control enabled and working in conjunction with the car’s superb electronically controlled rear differential, it rockets out of turns.

The supercharged retuned LT4 V8 is as smooth as anything you've ever driven. Power is meaty and ridiculous from idle to redline, at least in the first six gears. It doesn’t squawk the tires when you stomp the pedal so much as woosh them away in a cloud of smoke and rubber. The car barely moves. When it does leave the scene, all that remains are two 12.7-inch black marks with little piles of steaming slag. The ten-speed transmission never hedges, and gets extra aggressive once it realizes you’re trying to go fast. The only real downside is that the engine and exhaust noise mostly drown out the supercharger whine, which is one of the best reasons to have a supercharger in the first place.
