Chevrolet has released what might be considered the most advanced sport coupe in the world. The 2017 Camaro ZL1 has unprecedented levels of technology, refinement, track capability and straight-line acceleration.

“The Camaro ZL1 is designed to excel at everything,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development. “It’s a 2+2 coupe offering incredible performance – acceleration, handling and braking – with the highest levels of technology and

 perfect chassis damping, making it suitable for everyday driving. It will compare well to any sports coupe, at any price and in any setting.” 

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 has a new supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine estimated at 640 hp. It can also be purchased with either a six-speed manual transmission with active rev matching or an all-new 10-speed automatic. Standard technologies include Driver Mode Selector, dual-mode exhaust and advanced connectivity features.

The Camaro ZL1 goes on sale late this year. Check back to MotorWeek for more details.
