Making a stroll at the Dyno, the newest Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 did what it does the best and demonstrated uncanny ability to prove its muscle car cred. With a massive engine, fantastic tech underneath and rather awesome 6-speed transmission, the ZL1 did pull out 567 rear wheel HP and 570 rear wheels lb-ft torque.
Quite stunning effort from a stock Camaro. Think about it, new GM muscle car churned out to the wheels what the previous gen car had at the crank. Now, that is called progress.
Chevy official specs for the car note that the ZL1 has an engine developing 650hp and a lot of torque. Considering the car shares its engine with the Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V, we aren’t even surprised.
Now, Hennessey measured it just before it went into the business of improving the engine output and increasing its power.
We still do not know the end result of the Hennessey improvement, but don’t be surprised if they release a few tuning stages powering up the ZL1 engine to more than 1,000hp. Sure, with all that power at its disposal, Hennessey will have to rig it with an upgraded transmission and additionally strengthen the whole structure.
Nevertheless, the Camaro ZL1 did a blistering fast lap at the Nurburgring.
