The current-generation Chevy Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful factory Camaro ever built. It is propelled by a positively ferocious 650-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter LS-based V8 backed by a standard six-speed manual transmission or available ten-speed automatic. Performance is staggering, with 60 miles per hour coming in just three-and-a-half seconds from a dead stop. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 boasts supercar levels of performance for less than the cost of a new loaded full-size pickup.
This 2020 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is the result of a partnership between Hendrick Motorsports and Hertz Car Rental. It is the Hertz/Hendrick Motorsports Edition Camaro, of which just twenty-four copies were built. This one is the first of the run, production number 001. Using a standard ZL1, the car was transformed by swapping the stock supercharger for a Callaway Gen Three Supercharger, and a Callaway Triple Cooled Intercooler System, bumping output to an eye-watering 750 horsepower. The new supercharger needed more room beneath the hood, so a special carbon fiber hood insert was hand crafted. A data plate with the 001 production number is mounted in the engine bay.
The exterior of the Hertz/Hendricks Motorsports Chevy Camaro has an appearance package that includes Hertz Yellow stripes and graphics, matching painted brake calipers, Forgeline custom wheels with the Hertz logo and number 24 center caps, and Hertz badges on the front fenders.
The interior of the Hertz/Hendricks Motorsports Chevy Camaro has its own host of custom touches. The door cards have yellow inserts, black leather seats with yellow stitching, embroidered head rests, Hertz logo lighted door sills, a unique dash plate, and embroidered floor mats.
One of the coolest things that takes place at collector car auctions is cars that are sold for charity, and one of the best at this is Barrett-Jackson. For decades, the folks at Barrett-Jackson have done a superlative job of promoting the sale of charity cars, and wringing the most out of those lots for their respective charities. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the sale of this rare Hertz/Hendricks Motorsports Chevy Camaro will go to benefit the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. The car will be sold at approximately 5:30pm Pacific time on Saturday June 19th at the Barrett Jackson Las Vegas event.
