Chevrolet introduced a new Camaro model, the ZL1, at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show.

There are numerous differences between the ZL1 and the normal

V6 and SS models. More than 30 percent of the Camaro SS was

re-engineered for the Camaro ZL1.


The car features a supercharged 6.2L LSA engine with 1.9L

supercharger @7psi SAE-rated at 580 horsepower (432 kW) and

556 lb.-ft. of torque (754 Nm) making it the most-powerful

production Camaro ever. Power is delivered to the rear wheels by

either a six-speed manualTR-6060 or the 6L90 automatic

transmission. The manual has a stronger output shaft, a more

robust rear housing, and an additional mainshaft roller bearing to

provide 30-percent more torque capacity than the automatic

transmission used in the Camaro SS. To improve shift quality,

there are triple synchros in some gears and a revised linkage. A

new dual-mass flywheel is bolted to a high-capacity twin-disc

clutch. The automatic has additional clutch plates, a strengthened

output shaft, and is programmed with three operating modes

(Drive/Sport/Manual).[103]


The ZL1's power is complemented by exclusive performance

technologies, including the third-generation of Magnetic Ride

suspension and Performance Traction Management. Brembo

calipers with six pistons per wheel in front and four pistons per

wheel in back handle stopping. A duct system delivers air from

the grille to the hard-working rotors. The 20-inch forged-

aluminum wheels are fitted with second-generation Goodyear

Eagle F1 Supercar radials (285/35ZR-20 in front, 305/35ZR-20 in

back). Damping is provided by Magnetic Ride Control units

similar to those that Cadillac and Corvette have long used. This

system can sense the need for a damping correction 1000 times

per second and make that change in only five milliseconds. The

Performance Traction Management (PTM) system was originally

engineered for the Corvette C6 ZR1. In addition to modulating

engine torque for optimum launch performance in manual-

equipped ZL1s, PTM also varies the traction control and

suspension damping as needed. The five available modes are for

wet, dry, sport with or without stability control, and race-driving

conditions.[103]


Additional track-ready features standard on the Camaro ZL1

include coolers for the engine, transmission and rear differential,

cooling ducts for the Brembo brakes, and a high-performance

fuel system delivers fuel to the LSA engine under any

performance-driving condition. The ZL1's rear axle includes a

high-capacity cast-iron-case differential, massive asymmetrical

half shafts, and extra-heavy-duty universal joints. To keep the

lubricant temperature in line, there's an oil-to-oil heat exchanger

built into the bottom of the differential. Transmission fluid

circulates through that heat exchanger and through the radiator

to drop operating temps by more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit. In

addition, the engine is fitted with the same oil-to-coolant heat

exchanger used in the Corvette ZR1. The ZL1 has a deeper oil

pan, a longer pickup, and a higher-capacity pump than the SS


BREMBO BRAKES ALL AROUND. 14.6...6 PISTON UPFRONT AND 14.4...4 PISTON OUT BACK

20x11 CAST ALUMINUM REAR WHEELS WITH 305-35 F1 SUPERCAR TIRES

20x10 CAST ALUMINUM FRONT WHEELS WITH 285-35 F1 SUPERCAR TIRES

9.9 INCH INDEPENDENT REAR END W/3.73 GEARS


In handling Tests the ZL1 Camaro ended up with a 1.03g average

lateral acceleration performance on the skid pad, the Camaro ZL1

not only beat the Shelby GT500's 0.98g but also the Corvette ZR1

and matched the McLaren MP4-12C and Porsche 911 GT2 RS for

the highest lateral acceleration ever recorded by the online

magazine. Not bad for a 4,000 lb. car
