SLP Performance Tunes the New Camaro ZL1

For those wanting the new Camaro ZL1, you'll have to wait another year before it arrives in showrooms. However, SLP Performance may have a more immediate solution. The American tuning firm has received Chevrolet's "blessing" for their new tuner program that will effectively turn a Camaro SS into a ZL1. In an official press release, Chevrolet has stated that they have "no objection to SLP continuing its marketing and build-out efforts to complete the run of its 2011 ZL1 upfit package.

Beginning with a base Camaro SS, the tuning firm removes the stock engine and installs a custom-built 7.0-liter V8. It includes a high capacity radiator, SLP TVS 2300 Supercharger with 10 PSI boost, a cold-air induction system, and a carbon fiber engine cover finish. All together, output is 750 hp and an electronically limited top speed of 205 mph. A six-speed manual is standard along with an adjustable coil-over suspension, new sway bars, and larger Brembo GT brakes.

The exterior features a new carbon fiber hood and trunk lid, new front fascia, grille and splitter, and integrated polished aluminum exhaust tips. 20-inche wheels are standard. However, SLP Performance's ZL1 production run will be limited to just 69 units for 2011.
