2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Launch Control Preview: Video

Follow Viknesh

The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 launches next summer complete with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine developing no less than 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque.

Helping to make the most off all that power will be a myriad of electronic and mechanical aids, one of which will be an advanced launch control system.

We all know about the Nissan GT-R and its impressive launch control system, which in the latest 2012 model enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.

However, just like the GT-R, the new ZL1 has its own extraordinary drivetrain and accompanying rapid acceleration figures.

We’ll have to wait several more months at the earliest to find out just how rapid, but for now, enjoy this video showcasing the ZL1’s launch control system in action.

Other performance specs include a liquid-to-liquid oil cooler borrowed from the Corvette ZR1, a deep-sump oil pan, rear-differential cooler, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control able to adjust the suspension settings up to 1,000 times per second, and a new Performance Traction Management setup with five different settings ranging from “Wet” to “Race”.
