2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

The first Camaro was released in 1966 by GM with the simple goal of fending off the Ford Mustang. While neither would win the market outright, the powerful vehicles produced in the ensuing fight would go on to significantly inform our collective idea of the ‘Muscle Car’. Now, nearly 50 years later with the announcement of Chevy’s new 2017 Camero ZL1, there is no question that the storied model is still pushing the limits.

This beast of a car is packed with a 6.2-liter small block V8 that pumps 640 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque through a 10 speed automatic (or the classic 6 speed manual) transmission. A lot of the track hardware on this car is actually borrowed from the Corvette Z06 – including the Brembo six-piston monobloc brakes, launch control system, and magnetic ride suspension. Despite all this hardware, including a set of 20-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 supercar tires, the ZL1 is actually 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor. While the pricing and sprint times have yet to be released – it is fair to call this Camaro the most muscled up yet.
