Chevrolet releases a new official photo gallery picturing the new Camaro ZL1 in both coupe and convertible body types. The car is pushed by a 6.2-litre V8 engine delivering 580 hp and 754 Nm (556 lb-ft) of peak torque and coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox with dual clutch, but an automatic transmission option will also be made available. The model goes from standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds and reaches 296 km/h (184 mph) of top speed.
The new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is equipped with the Performance Traction Management, a new traction and stability system borrowed from Corvette ZR1 that includes launch control and allows drivers to tailor a range of electronic management systems, from traction to stability to steering. The model made the headlines just a few months ago when it recorded a staggering 7′:41″.27 lap time at the Nurburgring, leaving the likes of the likes of Porsche 911 GT3, Corvette ZR1 and Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV behind.
The coupe version of the Camaro ZL1 will enter the US market this coming Spring with a price-tag of 54.995 $ (approximately 43,000 € / 35,700 £), while its convertible counterpart will become available in the Summer with a price in the 60,000 $ area (47,000 € / 39,000 £).
