Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Joins Exclusive 11-Second Club
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 hits another performance milestone by joining the exclusive "11-second" club. The showroom-stock Camaro ZL1 automatic ran the quarter mile in 11.93-seonds. It's prowess doesn't stop there though, the ZL1 can also run 0-60 in 4 seconds and reach a top speed of 184 mph. It also lapped the famous Nurburgring in 7:41.27 – all with the street-legal, factory-issued components.
“The ZL1 is great at everything and we’re very proud of that,” said Tony Roma, Camaro ZL1 program engineering manager. “You can take it to the drag strip and run 11-second quarter-miles all day long. 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.”
