Track-tuned suspension with Magnetic Ride
Sensors calculate pitch, roll, squat, dive and yaw, instantly adjusting the suspension's magnetic fluid to form the ideal damping pressure.
Brembo brakes, six-piston front, four-piston rear
ZL1's two-piece rotors are the largest yet fitted to a gen5 Camaro. Six-piston calipers in front and four-pistons at the rear secure the discs for excellent braking performance.
6-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter
On the track, lap after lap, shifting is an instinct – an extension of your consciousness. ZL1's short-throw 6-speed gearbox offers an unfiltered connection to the heart of the machine.
ZL1 monitors your driving style and automatically adjusts between two exhaust modes. At higher speeds, exhaust is routed through a less-restrictive path, increasing horsepower. At lower speeds, exhaust remains fully baffled for quieter operation and mellower street driving. All without having to turn a single wrench.
6.2L Supercharged V8 engine
Intercooled Eaton supercharger. All-aluminum V8 has 580 horsepower and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. Blinding acceleration, top-end performance and proven reliability coexist happily under the hood.
Aluminum hood with carbon fiber air extractor
To fully appreciate ZL1, you need a road course, the twistier the better. A track where its use of lightweight materials – aluminum hood with carbon fiber inserts – and downforce-inducing aerodynamics help Camaro ZL1 wring the full effects from its 6.2L supercharged V8.
Forged aluminum wheels and Goodyear 20" tires
It all comes down to the contact patch – ZL1's second-generation Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires (285/35R20 front, 305/35R20 rear) plant all four corners with exceptional grip. The forged aluminum wheels (20x10" front, 20x11" rear) reduce unsprung weight.
High-performance seats with microfiber suede inserts
Your body needs support during cornering. ZL1's seats help ease the task. Microfiber suede inserts increase friction to keep you firmly planted in your seat.
Unique front fascia and front splitter, rear diffuser, rear spoiler and side rocker extensions
The ZL1 shape is pure Camaro – and a breed apart. Unique body elements contribute usable downforce, allowing ZL1 to respond to course corrections even at intense speeds. Add details that even the diehards aren't expecting, and you've got a masterpiece with the performance to match.
Four-pack auxiliary gauges with boost readout and HUD
Everything you need to know about the Camaro's performance is a quick glance away. Plus ZL1's heads-up-display presents vital info right on the windshield so you can keep your eyes on the track and focus on the task at hand – like getting to the end of the straightaway with deliberate speed.
Available suede-wrapped steering wheel & shift knob
Hold ZL1 in your fingertips. Available suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob allow a light touch for precision maneuvering. The small-diameter steering wheel permits quick turning and optimized hand position – ideal during aggressive cornering.
Redundant control steering wheel and Bluetooth® for select phones
ZL1 is track ready, but it's also ready to get you home from the course with all the amenities you expect from a world-class sports coupe. Wheel-mounted controls let you adjust the audio system without releasing your grip. Hands-free calling is compatible with select phones.
The USB port, hidden in the console, connects your iPod®4 to the audio system. Simply plug in your iPod and scroll though your playlists via steering wheel controls. You can even plug in a flash drive to the USB port.
Premium audio – Boston Acoustics
Boston Acoustics premium audio system provides a high-performance experience for occupants of the ZL1 interior. After all, when your ride is smooth, shouldn't your tunes be, too?
LED Halo Rings
The entire look of the ZL1 is capped off with deep-inset eyes. The high-intensity discharge headlamps with glowing LED halo rings set this car apart. There's more to seeing than light.
