The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Sports Car

PRESS – The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was debuted at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show. It is the highest-performing Camaro and the most technically advanced car ever developed in its class.

The new ZL1 continues the momentum of Camaro, propelling it into an entirely new realm of leading-edge performance technology.

It is planned to launch at the beginning of 2012. Motivated by a supercharged V-8 engine producing an estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW), the Camaro ZL1 will be the fastest Camaro ever offered by Chevrolet.

And more than just power, the ZL1 features technologically advanced and highly developed chassis and suspension systems that help it deliver balanced, track-ready handling and braking power to complement its high engine output.

Rigorous development of the ZL1 is ongoing, and official estimates of the car’s capabilities will be released later in 2011, as testing nears completion.

“Camaro ZL1 is about high-tech performance and design, and is a type of car no one has ever brought to this segment previously,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “It’s the most technically advanced Camaro ever, so we’ve chosen a name from the most elite and exclusive Camaro in history.”

The ZL1 name is derived from the all-aluminum racing engine of the same name, which was developed in the late 1960s and installed into a handful of regular-production 1969 Camaros. Only 69 were built with the engine, but they’ve achieved mythical status among enthusiasts, as they represented the pinnacle in Camaro performance – until now. The 2012 ZL1model is designed to be a major leap forward for the Camaro, bringing anew level of performance capability to the segment.

The Chevrolet Camaro or the Ford Mustang?

The modern-day Chevrolet Camaro has won bragging rights from Ford’s Mustang–at least for the 12-month period since the Camaro reappeared after a four-year hiatus.

But the honor may be short-lived.

From April 2009 through March 2010, Chevrolet sold 82,405 Camaros, compared with Ford’s 72,669 Mustangs.

But the 2011 Mustang threatens to deprive the Camaro of its first calendar-year victory over its Ford rival since 1985. The 2011 Mustang came out in April with new 3.7-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter V-8 engines, and Ford’s car beat the Camaro 10,225 to 8,931 last month.

But the game of one-upsmanship continues. Many of Ford’s sales came from incentives on 2010 Mustangs, and GM has help on the way: A Camaro convertible appears next year to compete with the Mustang’s ragtop.

2009 SEMA Show: Our favorite modified Chevrolet Camaros

2009 SEMA Show:

The favorite modified Chevrolet Camaros Ford may have been the featured automaker at the SEMA show this year, but this was also, very much, the year of the Camaro. And that’s understandable. While the customizing crowd has had several years now to play around with Ford’s latest reincarnation of the Mustang, first introduced in 2005 and refreshed for 2009, the Camaro is freshly minted. Last year, the Las Vegas Convention Center was chock full of examples of the then new Dodge Challenger. But this year, you could practically walk one end of the million square feet of SEMA to the other stepping only on new Camaros, without ever setting foot on the floor. But we wouldn’t recommend it.
