The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a monster in its own right, coming out of the box with its supercharged 6.2-liter engine and 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers most likely make you quicker than 99 percent of anything running around your local shopping plaza. Unless there’s a 2015 Corvette Z06 prowling around or something.
But, as we all know, people don’t normally leave these beasts completely stock. Car guys like to tinker, improve and experiment for the quickest times they can put down. It seems Stephen Vigoa found a winning formula with his ZL1, because it is reported he now as set a record for the quickest Camaro ZL1 in the world.
The build is comprised of stock ported heads, a cam, ported blower, and bolt ons including American Racing headers and a 2.55 upper pulley complimented by a 9.55 lower. Kraftworks is responsible for the build and computer tune and with these modifications, Vigoa’s ZL1 clocked in at 9.86 seconds in the quarter mile at 138 mph. That’s mighty quick considering a bone-stock ZL1 will clip the quarter mile in 12.2 seconds at 116.6 mph.
So far, it seems no one has stood up to proclaim a faster time than the ZL1 you see here. Even so, we’re sure someone out there is already planning the next quickest ZL1.
