Camaro ZL1 Posts Quarter Mile Time of 11.93

0.07 seconds - that’s the amount of time by which the Camaro ZL1 managed to beat the 12-second quarter mile time during a recent testing session that was performed by General Motors on a drag strip.
The car, which uses a 580 hp supercharged 6.2-liter V8, entered the “11-second club” by posting a time of 11.93 seconds and an exit speed of 116 mph (187 km/h), with the camaker using a stock ZL1 with a six-speed auto and factory stock Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires. The carmaker also tested the six-speed manual model, which posted a time of 11.96 seconds @ 117 mph (188 km/h).

“The ZL1 is great at everything and we’re very proud of that. You can take it to the drag strip and run 11-second quarter-miles all day long,” commented Tony Roma, Camaro ZL1 program engineering manager.

“You can also take it to a road course, where it’s balanced, handles well, and does exactly what you want – including lapping Virginia International Raceway’s Grand Course in under three minutes – and yet the ZL1 is sophisticated enough to use as a daily driver. It’s a supercar you can drive every day,” he added.
