With development of the new Camaro ZL1 nearing its end, Chevrolet has announced some serious performance stats that will send reverberations through the muscle car world.
Producing 650bhp and a stupendous amount of torque, Chevy has proclaimed that the ZL1 can reach 60mph using just first gear in the six-speed manual option. A 10-speed automatic gearbox is available but we much prefer the thought of taking the Dodge Viper on at its own game.
Considering that the previous generation car made the sprint to 60mph in four seconds with a meagre 580bhp and 100kg extra weight, the brand new car should dip well into the three-second club. Despite the launch of the more-powerful Ford Mustang GT500 being on the horizon, the Camaro will be another addition to the influx of super-muscle cars in the current market.
