During our drive of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 2.0T, which you can read about here, the brand had a little surprise for guests invited to the drive. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 arrived in prototype guise ahead of its official debut at the 2016 New York International Auto Show.
And we got to ride in it.
Our very own Manoli Katakis strapped in with Chevrolet engineer Aaron Link for a hot lap of Spring Mountain. This particular 2017 Camaro ZL1 was equipped with the six-speed manual gearbox with active rev-matching, making delightful noises as Link downshifted ahead of corners.
So, the car. If you couldn’t tell, it’s a beast. It’s fast, it’s planted and it really should put the world on notice. This isn’t your father’s, or your grandfather’s, Chevrolet Camaro.
