The new model presented by Chevrolet, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, has been launched this year at the Chicago Auto Show and it is belived to be the most powerful Camaron ever made. This magnificent car is power by a V 8 engine equipped with a LSA 6.2L which only makes us want to get behind that wheel.

Since it is not the first Camaro Chevrolet has ever launched the distinctive feature which will set the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 apart from the others are: the air extractors in the hood, the fascia and the center section which is made entirely our of carbon with satin black finishes.Other elements which contribute to this fine design are the 20 inch wheels and the exhaust pipes which have ZL1 engraved on them.

Since the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is considered the most powerful car in the world the manufacturers from General Motors have to make sure that everything is in place and fixed properly. The car has been tested by the manufacturer for six days, every day for four hours. To make sure that nothing happens while it is driven the company put it through all kinds of test in order to test its limits. If you want to see the test they are available on Chevrolet’s website.

Here are some of the elements which will define the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1:

  • new vertical fog lamps
  • a new fascia
  • a new aluminium hood with a raised insert made out of carbon
  • front splitter

The interior of the model will be available in black leather with microfiber inserts. The logo of the car will be present on the front headrests and on the instrument panel. The new interior features consist of:

  • alloy pedals
  • a new redesigned steering wheel
  • head up display

The power of the car is estimated to be around 550 horse power coming from a V 8 engine who has a LSA 6.2 liter. The manufacturer has said that the reason why the model is so fast is because of a “a unique induction system, with a lower-restriction air filter, dual ‘bell mouth’ inlet paths, and improved airflow through the supercharger housing.”

So, this is the new and improved model, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, offered by Chevrolet. R The price of the car is said to be somewhere around 50.000 $ which is ok for what this car has to offer.
