Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 debuts with 640bhp and a 10-speed gearbox

By Faiming_low on 16 Mar 2016

Attached Image While GM hasn’t shared any performance numbers yet, it is safe to assume that the new car will be faster than the old ZL1 which could do the century sprint in 3.9 seconds for the automatic and go on to a top speed of 296km/h

Attached Image Another first for this new ZL1 is the option of General Motor's brand new 10-speed automatic. Co-developed with Ford, the new transmission is set to improve acceleration and fuel efficient with its much closer ratios.

Attached Image As a track oriented car, the ZL1 gets a suite of other performance technologies, including an improved Magnetic Ride suspension, Performance Traction Management, electronic limited slip differential, Custom Launch Control and Driver Mode Selector. It rides on 20-inch forged alloys that are wrapped with Goodyear's Eagle F1 Supercar tyres. A set of Brembo brakes with six piston front and four piston rear calipers makes sure the car can stop as well as it can go.

Attached Image Inside, Recaro front seats, a suede flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob feature, while Chevrolet’s Performance Data Recorder is available too.
