Chevrolet - The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Is Even More Powerful Than Expected - News

We’ve never had any doubts about the new Camaro ZL1‘s performance. After all, it’s kicking out 631bhp and 640lb ft from its 6.2-litre LT4 V8, and weighs 90kg less than the old one. However, it turns out its power doesn’t quite match what was originally stated. In a good way.

Yep, it’s actually more powerful than Chevrolet’s original figure, which at the time was referred to as an ‘estimate’. Thanks to a leaked order guide posted on 6Camaro6, we now know the ZL1 is actually good for 641bhp (650hp). OK, so that’s only 10bhp more, but we’ll always take more power if it’s going. And as a bonus, the official figures reveal an extra 10lb ft of torque too.

The new ZL1 coupe should be landing at dealerships towards the end of the year, with a drop top version following in 2017.
