The ZL1 was equipped with some safety equipment but otherwise was production stock and was outfitted with the following:
  • 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V-8 making 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque

  • All-new 10R90 10-speed automatic transmission (set to Track mode to enable Performance Algorithm Shift calibration, providing optimal gear selection without the need to manually select gears)
  • Performance Traction Management
  • Brembo brakes with front 15.4-inch rotors and six-piston calipers and rear 14.4-inch rotors and four-piston calipers
  • Forged 20-inch wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 tires
  • Full underbody shielding
  • Lift-reducing front fascia elements with cooling ducts and Chevrolet “flowtie”
  • 11 heat exchangers
  • ZL1-specific rear spoiler and diffuser
“Many fast laps around the Nordschleife are dramatic, with lots of oversteer and steering input,” said Drew Cattell, Camaro ride and handling engineer and driver. “Not so with the ZL1, which is extremely planted and stable, almost calm. With Magnetic Ride and great overall chassis balance, the ZL1 is all about being inch perfect at every turn and carrying a lot of speed.”

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1's road test on the Nürburgring produced impressive results and has the Chevy team and consumers alike excited for it's release during Winter 2016.
