Vengeance Racing has surpassed a milestone with its latest customer’s car. The performance shop has created the world’s first 1,000 rear-wheel horsepower, sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. And it’s a mighty beast.
To be exact, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 puts down 1,047 hp and 784 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels after dyno testing. Of course, there’s a laundry list of modifications to achieve the four-digit horsepower rating, too.
Notably, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 features a Procharger supercharger system, billet intake manifold with ported LT4 heads, a stage two camshaft, methanol injection and a custom ECU calibration. Vengeance cranked the boost up to 19 psi and the Camaro ZL1 runs on race fuel to achieve the power figures.
Video evidence is here to prove the achievement as well, and the car sounds utterly bonkers on the dyno at wide-open throttle. Skip the caffeine and crank up the volume on the best of a Camaro build.
