A design performance

Sweeping design accommodates airflow in this performance masterpiece.

  • Massive upper and lower grille openings allow maximum cooling
  • Carbon-fiber composite hood air extractor moves air from the engine compartment to decrease lift
  • A three-stanchion spoiler increases downforce
  • Aggressive front splitter and rocker moldings complete this sophisticated aero package

Take your seat

A flat-bottom, suede-wrapped steering wheel welcomes you to this tech-appointed cabin. Standard RECARO® performance seats with sueded-microfiber inserts feature cleverly designed bolsters that help reduce arm interference during quick shifts. A suede shifter puts you in gear and you’re off.

Open it up with an open throttle

The fully electronic convertible top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely using the key fob — even while driving up to 30 mph — and hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover.

Glued to the track, lap after lap

Virtually every design decision was made with performance and aerodynamics in mind. A functional carbon-fiber composite hood air extractor pulls heat from the engine compartment and helps reduce lift. The grille and front fascia include large outboard cooling ducts to push air to the brakes. Even the front Chevrolet bowtie badge has been hollowed out for maximum airflow. Underneath, the air dam is designed to further reduce drag and increase downforce.  A wing-style rear spoiler and diffuser helps ZL1 maintain a high level of performance from the first lap to the last.

ZL1 rules the ‘ring

Posting fast times is one thing. Posting them at the grueling Nürburgring Nordschleife is another story altogether. Watch ZL1 utilize 650 horsepower, Magnetic Ride Technology and a track-honed aero package to complete this world-famous 12.9-mile road course in a blistering 7:29:60, besting the last-generation ZL1 by nearly 12 seconds.

The power of engineering

ZL1 is the most powerful Camaro ever produced, sporting a supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8. The Eaton supercharger features a new intercooler design that provides more efficient heat exchange and prolonged, sustained power – 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. While the competition fades, ZL1 delivers consistent power.

Get in your gear

Choose between a standard 6-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching or an available all-new paddle-shift 10-speed automatic.

  • 6-speed manual features a short-throw shifter
  • Active Rev Matching simulates heel/toe shifting and engages the throttle to match the wheel speed for smooth gear changes
  • Available segment-exclusive 10-speed paddle-shift auto delivers nearly instantaneous shifts for maximum performance
  • 10-speed paddle-shift auto features a wide band of ratios for an optimum range of power in any gear

Cooler heads prevail

With supercharged performance of this caliber, cooling is crucial. Standard engine oil, transmission and rear differential coolers lay the foundation while a 36mm high-performance radiator with dual auxiliary outboard radiators completes this track-honed powertrain cooling system.

Exacting in engineering

Built on a lighter and stiffer platform than previous generations, ZL1 is equipped with a suite of performance technologies that are designed to intensify the fun of the drive while cutting time from your laps.

BRAKES AND TIRES

The standard 20" forged aluminum wheels are wrapped in 285/30ZR20 front and 305/30ZR20 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar summer-only tires that are perfected for the track. Large Brembo® 390 mm x 36 mm 6-piston front and 365 mm x 28 mm 4-piston rear rotors give ZL1 precise braking while resisting fade.

MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL™

Magnetic Ride Control™ suspension reads road conditions 1,000 times per second. As you plunge into a corner, a charge hits the patented suspension fluid, stiffening the suspension and reducing body roll instantaneously. This system helps you squeeze every bit of performance from the LT4 engine while keeping your Camaro planted during extreme cornering.

eLSD

Integrated with the Performance Traction Management system, eLSD helps you achieve quicker lap times by providing high-speed stability, improving “turn in” response and corner exit speeds.

1LE: The most Camaro thing we’ve ever done

More engineering. More aero. More downforce. More of everything that connects driver to asphalt. When you set out to dominate the track, you get the most extreme Camaro to date. The 2018 ZL1 equipped with the 1LE Track Package will change the way you think about production supercars with its racing technology, like exposed weave carbon-fiber wing, front dive planes and adjustable suspension.

Through the eyes of Camaro

The available industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder logs video of your drives along with real-time performance data onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet Mode captures video and data for additional peace of mind.

Customize your launch

Custom Launch Control uses Performance Traction Control to keep the rear tires spinning at the correct speed and allows you to adjust both your launch RPM and wheel slippage through the Driver Information Center. A Line Lock feature lets you lock the front wheels to enable the rear wheels to spin, warming the tires for maximum grip at the drag strip.
