The iconic ZL1 has been reinvented for the sixth-generation Camaro and is purpose-built to challenge the most advanced sports coupes in the world. A refined, driver-focused cockpit helps you get every last bit of performance from the supercharged 6.2L LT4 engine. Rocketing from 0-to-60 in just 3.5 seconds, running a quarter mile in 11.4 seconds and pulling up to 1.02 g in g’s, ZL1 is a sports car designed to dominate in any setting.
Sweeping design accommodates airflow in this performance masterpiece. An all-new front fascia features massive upper and lower grille openings for maximum cooling. A functional carbon-fiber composite hood air extractor moves air from the engine compartment to decrease lift, while a more aggressive front splitter and rocker moldings complete this sophisticated aero package. From the broader front fenders that house wider wheels and tires, to the downforce of its three-stanchion spoiler, ZL1 is designed to maintain a high level of performance from the first lap to the last.
Take hold of the flat-bottom, suede-wrapped steering wheel as the roar of the dual-mode exhaust rings through the tech-appointed cabin. Standard RECARO® performance seats with sueded-microfiber inserts put you into the perfect position with cleverly designed bolsters that keep you planted in place and help reduce arm interference during quick shifts. Put your hand on the suede shifter, press your foot down on the accelerator and you’re off.
Available early 2017, the fully automatic convertible soft-top seamlessly hides behind a hard, body-colored tonneau cover when you want a taste of the open air. And it can be lowered by the press of a button or remotely using the key fob — even while driving up to 30 mph, so you don’t have to stop to lower the top.
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 provide even more airflow and features 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 complete an aerodynamic package that helps ZL1 maintain a high level of performance from the first lap to the last.
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.
ZL1 is the most powerful Camaro ever produced. Under the hood, you’ll find 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, powerful performance.
Choose between a standard 6-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching or an available all-new paddle-shift 10-speed† automatic.
With supercharged performance of this caliber, cooling is crucial. A 36mm high-performance radiator with dual auxiliary outboard radiators lays the foundation for a track-honed powertrain cooling system. Standard engine oil, transmission and rear differential coolers complete the package to keeps things cool during extreme driving.
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.
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™ 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 in instantaneously. This system helps you squeeze every bit of performance from the LT4 engine while keeping your Camaro planted during extreme cornering.
Standard Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) on ZL1 Coupe helps keep your ZL1 planted through extreme cornering. 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.
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.
The Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder, available exclusively on the coupe, logs video of your driving sessions, along with real-time performance data, onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. Available Cosworth Toolbox software lets you comb through performance and lap metrics with a race-derived program that acts as a virtual driving coach. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet Mode can capture video and data for additional peace of mind.
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.
Turn your compatible mobile device into a command center for your vehicle. Start/stop† your engine and lock/unlock† your doors with the tap of a finger. You can even send destinations to your available navigation system, view diagnostic information and set parking reminders from virtually anywhere. It’s a simpler and smarter way to stay connected to your compatible† Chevrolet vehicle.†
Along with all the performance technology integrated into this precision driving machine, Camaro offers impressive safety technology to help you stay safe and in control when the rubber meets the road.
