Watch The 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Test Its Line Lock Feature: Video2
Yes, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has a burnout button, ladies and gents. Developed for drag strip intentions, the line lock feature was shown off by none other than General Motors product chief, Mark Reuss, during the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Flipping through the launch control menus (when in track mode) will pull up the line lock feature. From there, the driver applies 80-pounds of brake pressure, which is shown on a handy infographic, and the Camaro ZL1 will give you the green light to mash the accelerator for a gnarly burnout.
If that’s not enough, pressing both center buttons on the steering wheel – cruise control on the left and select on the right – leads to a smoking, rolling burnout. The 2017 Camaro ZL1 ensures things are safe, though, reading steering wheel input and cutting throttle should the driver want to go sideways. Straight lines only, folks.
