The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the latest Camaro variant on the block and it’s poised to take names at the drag strip and the track. Lucky for Motor Trend, the publication was able to spend some quality time with the car for an upcoming episode of Ignition.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 takes everything loved about the sixth-generation Camaro and turns the dial past 11. How so? It includes a 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 engine borrowed from the C7 Corvette Z06 and drops in General Motors’ first application of the new 10-speed automatic gearbox. Camaro engineers also revealed the Camaro is capable of going 202 mph in top speed tests. The car means business.
We look forward to what kind of shenanigans the ZL1 is capable of doing in the upcoming episode. In the meantime, you can watch the ZL1 perform a smokey burnout in the teaser trailer above.
