Default Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 described by chief engineer at Oshawa plant



Bow-Tie brand fans are chomping at the bit to get more information on the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. General Motors decided to show off its latest high-performance coupe at the Camaro Homecoming event in Oshawa, Ontario. Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser brought the car to the crowd, and then spent a few moments talking about the Zed ZL1 on camera.

For those unaware, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 gets a host of upgrades over the rest of its siblings. On the outside, improved aerodynamics are in full effect from nose to tail. Inside, Chevrolet adds suede to the seats, steering wheel and shift lever. But the real heart of the ZL1 lies under the hood, and it seems we'll have to wait for official word to get the full skinny on the power output of the supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine. Rumour has it that the Camaro ZL1 could be pumping out over 570 horsepower, but for now, all GM'* saying is "at least 550."

I want one. I'm not a huge fan of the new Camaros, but this is different. The potential to have about 570hp is just awesome.
