Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

  • 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 spied

    We're not supposed to see it yet, but the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 made a surprise appearance recently in Las Vegas, Nevada. A Camaro6 forum user by the name of "mlee" snapped photos of a truck carrying the refreshed pony car, but the changes don't exactly mirror those on the regular 2019 Camaro. Foremost, it appears the current ZL1's fascia will carry over, for better or worse. The refreshed 2019 Camaro SS (shown below) ushered in a rather controversial design, so some Camaro fans are sure to be relieved to see the older design on the ZL1. Moving around to the back, the Camaro ZL1 spied...

  • Katech adds a whipple supercharge to a 2018 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE
    Katech supercharges the Chevy Camaro ZL1 up to 760 wheel horsepower

    Katech takes your stock standard General Motors machine and turns it into something you should be afraid to drive. Or at least, you should have some semblance of skills before taking to the wheel. That should be the case for anybody who buys a car like the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, and even more so...

  • Hennessey Exorcist Camaro ZL1 hits 217 mph during top speed run
    Hennessey Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 tops out at 217 MPH

    Hennessey Performance Engineering revealed the 1,000-horsepower Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 last April, and since then the car's become an assailing answer to Dodge's Challenger Demon, even if it's not an OEM package. We know 959 of its 1,000 horsepower actually makes its way to the rear wheels...

    Hennessey Exorcist Camaro ZL1 1LE owner gets the ride of his life

    For most people, anything north of 400 horsepower is quite intimidating. It's a massive amount of waiting energy that's set to be released at a moment's notice. Still, we live in a golden age of horsepower, which means there is a heck of a lot of vehicles you can choose from that offer far more...

    Chevy showcases Camaro SS Trans-Am race car with ZL1 1LE parts

  • 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

    The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is the most extreme sixth-generation Camaro we've seen yet. But, it's a little too extreme for Europeans. During the most-recent episode of Motor Trend's "Ignition," we learn the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE and all of its track prowess won't be sold on the old continent. Unfortunately for Europe, the car absolutely flunks pedestrian safety standards. While a regular sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro gets the OK, the ZL1 1LE fails thanks to its additional aerodynamic pieces. Chevrolet tacked on a massive front splitter, dive planes, and an even bigger front grille to...

  • Camaro ZL1 and Ford GT on race track
    New Ford GT can't shake Camaro ZL1 on the track

    Let this sink in for a moment: Ford's bonkers GT supercar actually makes less horsepower than a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. It's true; the numbers don't lie. A Camaro ZL1 leaves the factory with 650 horsepower on tap from its 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine, while the Ford GT comes up a tad shy...

    John Hennessey explains how to order an Exorcist Camaro ZL1

    The term "muscle car" doesn't begin to describe what the Chevrolet Exorcist Camaro ZL1 is capable of. With 1,000 horsepower—959 hp at the rear wheels—the Exorcist Camaro should even give the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon a run for its money. So, how can you buy one? John Hennessey of...

    The days of singling out American muscle cars as hopeless handlers are well and truly over. Case in point is the performance of the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE on what’s arguably the world’s toughest race track: the Nürburgring. The 650-horsepower Detroit special has lapped the...

    The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has returned to the Nürburgring, and it's ready to take some names. Following the Camaro ZL1's stellar performance at The Green Hell, where the car clocked a 7.29.60 time, the Camaro ZL1 1LE with its added track capability is likely to only shave precious time...

  • 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 180 MPH Run

    It's safe to say the engineers on the Chevrolet Camaro program have successfully executed one beast of a car. If that wasn't already apparent from its on-paper specs, and the fact we even found it too fast to be fun in some cases, this 0-180 mph acceleration video should do the trick to convince you. Hennessey Performance Engineering took to the internet to showcase the baseline, stock acceleration from a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, likely before the performance house goes in to make some go-fast modifications of its own, maybe even for its demon-slaying Camaro Exorcist. Not only does the...

    If you just bought a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the chances are good that you're quite keen on taking it out to your local drag strip. The chances are also good that you're willing to see how it does in stock trim after letting the car break in over the course of maybe 500 miles or so. This isn't...

    Rick Hendrick paid $250,000 for the first 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

    The very first 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has a home—and a familiar one at that. None other than Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports and the dealer group that bears his name, purchased the most track-capable Camaro to date. Of course, owning the first of anything normally doesn't...

    First Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE heads to Barrett-Jackson auction

    You want one. I know you do. That's because I want one, and I don't even like the Camaro all that much. Things have changed with the new platform underpinning the car though, and it's finally become the performance machine from America that can do battle with competition and handle circuits from...

    2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 first drive review: too fast to be fun

    What's the right amount of horsepower? After driving hundreds of different cars in my career, I'm very confident the answer isn't “As much as humanly possible,” otherwise we'd all be driving around in Top Fuel dragsters, and that'd be a real nightmare during rush hour. And we'd be deaf...

    The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE just arrived to destroy everything

    Just before the running of the 2017 Daytona 500, Chevrolet has taken the wraps off the new 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE. What is it? In short, a ZL1 with enhanced aero and some cool suspension technology. As if the new Camaro ZL1 wasn't going to be track-ready enough, the 1LE version cranks things up a few...

  • 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible

    Back in the halcyon days of 2011, Ford revealed the wildly fast—but exceptionally primitive—2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 could crest the magical 200-mile-per-hour mark thanks to its 662-horsepower supercharged 5.8-liter V-8. More recently, Dodge revealed its Charger SRT Hellcat will do the same. And Chevrolet? Close. So. Crushingly. Close. The Bowtie brand announced today that its 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 has a top speed of 198 mph. Now, before the Ford and Mopar folks dive into the comments to bash their friends at Chevrolet, it's worth noting how the company discovered that...

    Did GM make a mistake giving the 2017 Camaro ZL1 650 hp?

    Dodge made a statement when it unleashed its Hellcats with 707 horsepower. Naturally, GM answered that call with the new 2017 Camaro ZL1, which packs 650 horsepower. Last week we ran a fun Twitter poll with the question in our headline. While 67 percent of the respondents said no, 33 percent of you...

    When it comes to democratization of horsepower, you can’t beat a Detroit muscle car. The 707-hp 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat started the current trend with its base price of only $60k. Now the even more capable 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has picked up the baton with its starting price...

    At its March reveal, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was estimated to deliver 640 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are already staggering for a production Camaro, but a leaked order guide for the muscle car icon’s 2017 model year has revealed the ZL1 will be getting an...
