2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Configurator Is Top Notch

When the base MSRP is identical to the “As shown” price in the picture used to promote something, you know it’s very cool, since it didn’t need anything else to make it look cool. That’s the case with the brand new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the fastest pony of its kind GM has built.
The competition from the ‘13Ford Mustang GT500 is fierce, but we’re confident in the car that Chevrolet’s engineers honed on the Nurburgring, where it clocked in at 7:41.27. The only configuration that’s just been launched has very few options for you, starting with a few paint combos you might want to check out.

You can go for the standard manual to go with your 580 hp 6.2-liter V8, or spec the automatic, which GM thinks half of you may want. The most powerful factory Camaro ever will do the quarter mile run in 12.1 seconds at 119mph (191km/h) before reaching its top speed of 180mph (290 km/h).

“This is an exciting new chapter in the ongoing revival of the tremendously popular Chevrolet Camaro,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of GM of Canada. “The new 2012 Camaro ZL1 is the most-powerful Camaro ever produced by Chevrolet and further demonstrates the flexible capabilities of the award-winning Oshawa Assembly Plant.”

“Through a disciplined approach and a relentless focus on execution, the Oshawa team has worked efficiently to ensure a successful, high-quality launch of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1,” stated Dan Hermer, plant manager at the Oshawa Assembly Plant, where the ZL1 is built.
