Armed with 650 horsepower and a 6.2ltr supercharged V-8, the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the fastest and most powerful yet to bear the nameplate. However, its unprecedented performance and dynamics are no surprise given the depth of engineering that has gone into its making, a press release said.
Coaxing 650 horsepower and 881Nm of torque out of a supercharged V-8 was just the beginning of the Camaro ZL1 performance story. Unique features such as the available carbon fibre rear wing, specific air deflectors and dive planes on the front fascia produce grip-generating downforce to help the car stick harder and drive faster in turns.
To ensure better cooling of the V-8, the Chevrolet bowtie on the front grille is hollow to aid airflow. Overall, the Camaro ZL1 has as many as 11 heat exchangers for optimal cooling of the powertrain on the track.
True to its racing heritage, the Camaro ZL1 delivers incredible performance on-track, however, the extra ratios in the transmission mean that while cruising on the road, engine revs can be kept low to reduce fuel consumption. In essence, the ten-speed automatic delivers the best of both worlds – performance and fuel efficiency.
