We’re still quite some time out from an official launch of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, but pre-production models are being built and tested right now.
The Camaro team will take the summer to develop and hone the 2017 Camaro ZL1 in further, and the General Motors Lansing assembly will continue gearing up for the most beastly Camaro Six variant we’ve seen yet.
“This is kind of the pinnacle for us,” said Mike Trevorrow, GM’s Lansing regional plant manager told The Lansing State Journal. “With 640 horsepower, I don’t think we have much more room. It’s the fastest car I’ve seen parked.”
“This handles very well on corners,” Trevorrow said. “There’s a greater balance. This goes against the Mustang Boss and Shelby, and we’re starting to see the vehicle be compared to Porsche and BMW M Series.”
