Mind over Muscle, the new Chevrolet 2017 Camaro ZL1 reigns over drag strip, street, and track

Regional Media Office – Through fifty-years of Camaro history, one moniker has stood apart with its racetrack inspired power and performance for the road , the Camaro ZL1. The icon for performance car connoisseurs is now available across Chevrolet showrooms in the Middle East.

The Camaro ZL1 has been reinvented for 2017, and challenges the most advanced sports coupes of the world. Built upon the agile foundations of the sixth-generation Camaro, the 2017 ZL1 is armed with unprecedented levels of technology, refinement and track capability.

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is powered by a 650 horsepower supercharged 6.2L V-8 small block connected to either a six-speed manual transmission with active rev-matching or the state of the art, world first all-new 10-speed automatic, the first 10-speed application in the Chevrolet lineup Both powertrain combinations offer unprecedented performance capabilities and driver engagement.

However, the ZL1’s supremacy isn’t confined to the drag strips. With its advanced chassis, stiffened suspension and magnetic ride control, it can pull up to 1.02G in cornering, which makes the ZL1 a sports coupe designed to dominate in any setting.
