Chevy announces pricing for the Camaro ZL1 coupe and convertible.
Just a few days ago Chevrolet revealed the power numbers of the new Camaro ZL1. The supercharged V8 beast packs 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, and now the automaker has announced just how that engine will perform and what you'll pay for said performance. Let's get to the figures first. When equipped with the 10-speed automatic transmission and stock tires the ZL1 will do 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. It'll run the quarter-mile in 11.4 seconds at 127 mph. The Camaro ZL1 needs just 107 feet to go from 60 mph to a standstill.
In terms of price, well the new ZL1 sounds like a pretty damn good deal to us. The coupe starts at $62,135 and the convertible comes in at $69,135. While this is a great deal for gearheads it may present a bit of an issue for Chevy. The Corvette Z06 offers the same engine stats and starts at $80,395. Both cars are designed to be track beasts but the Camaro is technically more livable, even if its backseat is the size of a child's coffin. We're not going to complain about affordable American performance, but it will be interesting to see how Chevy markets both cars at the same time. Maybe it's time to roll out that Vette ZR1 we caught spy shots of?
