  • 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 specs divulged



    General Motors has been noticeably tight-lipped about the specifications for its 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, leaving enthusiasts to salivate and daydream over the sorts of possibilities that can arise from a supercharged, all-aluminum V8. Now we can wonder no more. According to a post in the Camaro5 forums, dealers already have the skinny on the meanest Camaro of them all. The model will reportedly arrive with a blistering 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque under its wide hood. Those figures are good enough to hustle the 4,120-pound muscle car around the fabled Nürburgring in a skinny seven minutes and 41 seconds, though something tells us that has as much to do with the car's 51/49 weight balance.

    Two wheel options will be available, including a five-spoke and a 10-spoke design, and buyers can pick from a total of nine colors. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard equipment, though a six-speed automatic will also be available for those buyers who wish to leave the cog-swapping to the car. The Camaro ZL1 will also come with the same four-pack console gauges as the SS model, though a boost gauge is now part of the party. Head over to the Camaro5 for a full look at the vehicle's specifications.2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 specs divulged originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 24 Oct 2011 13:01:00 EST.

    I use the Texas Speed ORY. It is sectional and I was able to tweak the pipe to get it to hang close to the body. One it's in place and take for a test

    Ahh, makes sense. I've got SLP tuned length headers and Y-pipe with cats. Those headers actually hang quite low.
