What Happened To This 650-HP Chevrolet Camaro ZL1?

Muscle Car / Comments

After just 48 miles the party barely got started.

Just because one has the cash to buy a $63,000 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe does not mean they should. Same goes for any high-powered vehicle designed and engineered for speed and track performance. But, unfortunately, many still equate having money as a license to drive fast without proper training. Skills cost money, too. This 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe sadly paid the ultimate price for its owner's lack of skills. Posted for sale on car part auction site Copart is this barely driven and now totaled Camaro ZL1 1LE. And when we say barely driven we seriously mean it. Just 48 miles are on its speedometer. Barely a trip around the block, and now this supercharged V8 muscle car is now a parts donor.

We don't know the details about what happened but the crash was clearly violent. Both the front and rear ends sustained serious damage and even the passenger-side curtain airbags were deployed.

Based on what we can see, it appears the Camaro spun out at a high rate of speed and the driver immediately lost control. Also notice that this Camaro ZL1 is equipped with a six-speed manual, a factor that certainly makes handling 650 hp even more difficult for the untrained driver. A couple of wheels even snapped off and various suspension components have since been removed. What's the status of the LT4 V8? Can it be salvaged? Unknown but it's definitely worth a try.

The rest of the exterior is too twisted and dented for anything but the crusher but there might be some interior components that could find a second life somewhere.

So, how much for this destroyed Camaro? As of this writing, the current bid is $15,400 but the reserve has yet to be met. The estimated retail value is $83,377, for reference. Given that fairly high bid, someone somewhere must see value here.
