    Full test with performance data of the mighty Camaro ZL1 in its final year of production (in this form, anyway). Read the story and see photos of.

    ROAD TEST EDITOR JAKE LINGEMAN: So cheap! I've been driving a lot of expensive machinery lately, leading me to debate the merits of.

    The corners of the front fascia were shaped to minimize lift, while brake-cooling ducts in the outer corners of the lower grille opening provide a direct, high-flow path to the brake rotors. NACA-style ducts are incorporated into the rear belly pan for transmission cooling. Mode 1 — Traction control set for wet conditions, with stability control on and Magnetic Ride Control set on Tour. Balanced, lightweight reciprocating assembly High-strength hypereutectic pistons Sixth-generation Eaton supercharger with four-lobe rotors Piston oil squirters.

    More than just power and raw numbers, the ZL1 features technologically advanced and highly developed chassis and suspension systems. They help it deliver balanced, track-ready handling and braking power to complement high engine output, and include third-generation Magnetic Ride Control.

    The Camaro ZL1 is available in coupe and convertible models. Each wears a unique front fascia not shared with any other Camaro models. It was developed for the unique airflow requirements for engine cooling, brake cooling and aerodynamic downforce. ZL1 models also include high-intensity discharge headlamps, rear park assist, a rear-vision camera system, MyLink with a seven-inch-diagonal color touch screen, a driver information center with color display and head-up display.

    Recaro performance bucket seats are available on the coupe, and models equipped with the automatic transmission include remote vehicle starting. Downforce-optimized design To maintain stability and steering response at the speed the Camaro ZL1 is capable of achieving, it features an aerodynamic design that generates downforce to press the tires against the track. In addition to the functional design elements, the Camaro ZL1 offers several aesthetic options, including a bright-finish wheel package, exposed-weave carbon fiber hood insert and a stripe package.

    Four strategic reinforcements enhance the already-stiff body structure to quell the cowl and steering wheel shake common in convertibles. Additional structural reinforcements in the ZL1 convertible are designed to improve noise and vibration characteristics, while also reducing unwanted ride and body motions, including a hydroformed tube in the A-pillars.

    The engine also draws its breath through a unique induction system, with a low-restriction air filter, dual inlet paths and enhanced airflow through the supercharger housing. Because the Camaro ZL1 uses electric power steering, the engine does not incorporate a conventional hydraulic power steering pump on its accessory drive system.

    This enhances performance, because no engine power is used to turn a steering pump pulley. Track-capable manual and automatic transmissions The ZL1 is offered with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The higher torque capacity results from a strengthened output shaft, high-strength rear housing, and additional roller bearing.

    The MG9 has also been tuned for improved shift feel, with a dual-mass flywheel, twin-disc clutch, and triple synchros for smooth, precise shifts. Similarly, the Hydra-Matic 6L90 automatic has been strengthened to handle the torque and horsepower produced by the 6.

    It features a strengthened input gearset with two additional pinion gears, additional clutch plate, and a strengthened output shaft and gearset. To make the ZL1 perform equally well on street and track, the 6L90 features three distinct drive modes:. The Camaro ZL1 is also equipped with a dual-mode exhaust system, which alters the sound level and character in response to engine rpm and throttle position.

    Chassis and drivetrain details The drivetrain is unique to the Camaro ZL1 and is composed of a stronger driveshaft and rear axle system, featuring a larger, stronger 9. A rear-differential cooler reduces temperatures in the differential by more than F. Asymmetrical half-shafts — a 60mm hollow shaft on the right and a 33mm solid shaft on the left — offer different torsional stiffness rates, which work with the limited-slip differential to minimize the chance of wheel hop on hard launches.
