What is it exactly that sets the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 from any of its previous versions? The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is simply faster than any of the previous models and that is what makes it so special. According to Motor Trend, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 draws power from a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. You can choose between a standard six-speed automatic transmission and Ford's new 10-speed automatic for the gearbox.

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds and can cover a quarter of a mile in 11.5 seconds at the speed of 125 miles per hour. Another impressive thing about the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the fact that it can reach a speed of 202.3 miles per hour. That being said, Chevrolet's claim that the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is the fastest Camaro ever holds true.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1: More Than Meets The Eye

We already know that the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro is one heck of a fast car but it doesn't just get its speed from the engine under its hood. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro also has an exterior appearance that helps with its aero dynamics. According to Slash Gear, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 sports a stanchion rear spoiler that gives it a better drag ratio than any of the usual blade-type rear spoiler found in other cars.

And as far as the other features go, they have all been tuned in order to give the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 greater amount of speed without compromising stability
