Internal competition for the Corvette Z06

Detroit, March 16, 2016

The Corvette Z06 with the track Pack "Z07" Chevrolet is the sharpest track weapon from the home. Now, the Super sportsman competitors from his own camp. The Camaro fluctuates with the ZL1 version and to make legs the Corvette.

Strong V8 power unit

Under the new hood with carbon air intake suggests a 6.2 litre V8 heart with compressor, which produces 640 HP. The new ZL1 can offer thus 60 more Horsepower than its predecessor. The standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional ten speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, 868 Newton metres of torque transmitted 80 Newton meters more than in the previous version on the rear axle. An electronic limited-slip differential to keep power in check. For the perfect traffic light starts is a launch control on board. Eleven cooler in the handle to get the temperature balance of the powertrain.

Lighter and stiffer

The new Camaro ZL1 weighs about 90 kilograms less than from 2012 to 2015 of built predecessors and can trust on the lighter and stiffer chassis of the current generation of Camaro. The "magnetic ride" chassis is adaptive and can be adjusted on the "drive mode" switch. 20-inch forged wheels are braked with 285er tyres at the front and 305er tires on the rear axle from a Brembo brake system with six-piston calipers and 390 mm discs.

Wide Aero package

In the Interior, Recaro seats and a lower headtube steering wheel, which is just like the suede leather gear knob await the driver. The "performance data recorder" is optionally available, with which you will be able to record his racetrack stays. In addition to the modified bonnet, the new ZL1 contributes also a larger grille, a rear spoiler, a larger front splitter and wider fenders. The Camaro ZL1 should come in the course of the year 2016 on the market maybe also with us. (mf)
