With 580 horsepower to the crank, an exhaust note capable of summoning the four horsemen, a track-covered warranty, and enough suspension technology to shame Lamborghini, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a home-grown budget supercar in an unassuming package. Because of its capabilities, it requires an elevated amount of TLC to ensure its longevity, so Chevy is providing new owners with a set of instructional videos… which have conveniently found their way onto YouTube.
While some may be obvious, others may enlighten those who are experiencing performance car ownership for the first time. For instance:
- You shouldn’t wax the carbon fiber insert
- You can’t rotate the tires, as they are corner-specific and vary in size from front to rear
- Don’t overfeed the engine with oil, as it can cause over-consumption
- The brakes need to be burnished (safely) in order to optimize their endurance and stopping power
The videos below provide at least an entire lunch break’s worth of instructional material. And even if you don’t own a Camaro ZL1, they still make for an intriguing watch, and will perhaps teach you a few facts that you may not have otherwise known about the super pony car. Plus, the first video features ZL1 chief engineer Al Oppenheiser, while the rest feature the formal narrations of a total stranger. So without further adieu, take it away, Al!
