Everything about the newly announced 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL 1 is exquisite as the car simply hugs the road like never before and boasts of an amazingly powerful power train of all time. It competes with models like the Dodge Challenger SRT and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.
The brand announced that this new Camaro is scheduled to hit dealership stores before the end of the year. On the inside, it is powered by 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine capable delivering 640 horsepower. The car uses a six speed manual transmission system while buyers have the option to go for a ten speed automatic transmission if they choose to. All the models in the lineup uses a rear wheel drive system. The engineers claimed that the new model is at least 200 pounds lighter than the outgoing variant but features a sturdy chassis and offers increased pound feet of torque. The ten speed automatic transmission is another first of its kind on a Camaro.
Similar to many models of recent days, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL 1 is made primarily using carbon fiber components. It uses wide fenders, larger front splitter and rear spoilers which looks like the wing on a jet craft. As expected, all these components are made to allow the car to go against the wind with minimum friction. It increases its efficiency, speed and keeps the car stable at its top speed. The 20-inch forged aluminum wheels are equipped with Goodyear Eagle F1 supercar tires.
According to the manufacturer, the new Camaro is a competent challenger for even the most established sports coupe in the world and has been made from the scratch to excel in every perspective.
“A comprehensive experience is what we were aiming at when building and designing the ZL 1. The 2 + 2 coupe has the best acceleration, braking and handling made possible by innovative technologies and a chassis which not just suits race track driving but for daily commuting as well. We are highly confident that the Camaro is capable of competing and winning against any Sports coupe from the world at any price point and any setting,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Chevrolet.
A comfortable interior includes Recaro front seats, shift knob and flat bottom steering wheel. Rambo brakes promise the best control over the coupe. The car is beautifully balanced to withstand varying environment and different driving styles.
