The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a high-performance version of the sixth generation (2015—present) Chevrolet Camaro rear-wheel-drive sports car.
|“||There once was a time when the muscle car was considered dead. The arrival of the all-new ZL1, the most powerful Camaro ever built, is further indication that those times are well behind us. The ZL1 is power personified, with 650 hp and 650 ft-lbs of torque, but this new age muscle car does more than just beat feet. In the handling department, magnetorheological dampers and a chassis built for smoothing out the harshest of twisties will have you begging to turn. Welcome to a new era – it’s going to be a fast one.||”|
Being a high-performance version of the sixth generation Camaro, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 uses a 6.2L (6,162 cc) LT4 supercharged V8 from the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C7), with the same power and torque specifications as the Corvette Z06: 650 hp (659 PS; 485 kW) and 650 ft·lb (881 Nm).
The Camaro ZL1 can come with either a 6-speed Tremec TR6060 manual or a unique 10-speed 10R90 automatic transmission. The ZL1 is capable of doing 0-60 mph within 3.5 seconds while remaining in first gear and reaching an officially claimed top speed of 198 mph (319 km/h).

Driving Characteristics Edit
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the fastest road-legal Chevrolet Camaro model in the series, capable of quick acceleration (0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds), great handling thanks to its enhanced magnetorheological dampers and chassis, short braking distances (better than most cars in its class), and a very high top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).
Due to adopting the Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06's 6.2L supercharged LT4 V8, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 can basically be described as a slightly downgraded version of the Corvette Z06, as both cars feature similar performance aspects.
