The Chevy Camaro ZL1

It's here! The Supercharged 6.2 Liter Beast that produces 550 Horspower and 550 pound-feet Torque will arrive at local Chevy dealers in early 2012. It also features new body panels to disquinguish it from the SS. Was it worth the wait? You decide!

haha, holy sweet mirrors batman. Awesome, no ugliness. The Z28 is still coming back as far as I know, but then again I haven't been keeping a strict eye on it.

Not really digging all the suede though.

Wait TJ, how come the Cobalt doesnt have a ZL1 model. Your views on the automotive world are twisted, ignorant, and just down right unforgivable. haha.

The ZL1 IS the rumored Z28. Notice the similar HP figures? I love the ZL1 badges, they look like the ZR1 badges. I think it would be cool if they replaced the "CAMARO" badge on the side with a ZL1 emblem.

In 1969, Chevrolet released an edition of the Camaro designed for racing, with the RPO code "ZR1." They dropped a 427 in them, and only 69 were made.

Meh, it's still huge and I'm guessing still heavy. A diet would benefit it more than a more powerful engine.

As far as I know the Z28 is still coming but it will probably be the SS with a body kit. I like this ZL1 so far.

Agreed. I really don't think that it will be able to keep up with the GT500

Really? Idk, I'm hearing conflicting stuff across the net. I was under the understanding that the ZL1 IS the Z28, since the Z28 is the one that was supposed to have the same powertrain as the CTS-V, and it turns out that this new ZL1 has that powertrain (the supercharged 6.2L, with 550 HP)

The only thing i'm kindof iffy about: The front bumper sortof resembles one of those ricer front bumper body kits. Idk, it's hard to describe what I'm talking about in words, so I'll let Google Images do the talking:

The new Bumblebee looks really badass.

Lol, Jacob's front grill doesn't look like that I love his z28's front end.

Idk, I'm just not a huge fan of that shape.

Just a note. News like this, can be made into an article, and published on the site. That's kinda what we're looking for when Rocket posted: want to write articles for FBO?

The RUMORED Z28 is the ZL1, but they will be comming out with the Z28 aswell. I will house the new LS5, a 5.5 Direct Injected high revving V8
