The Chevrolet Camaro is undoubtedly one of the most powerful muscle cars in the industry, but the upcoming model may prove that Chevrolet has officially outdone itself. The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE brings more performance and an aerodynamic design that allows it to lap the Nurburgring faster than some supercars.
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE boasts a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, a perfect 1:1 balance. That kind of performance leads to a 0-to-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds. As for the infamous Nurburgring, the Camaro ZL1 1LE conquered it in just 7 minutes and 16 seconds. That’s a faster time than its Corvette sibling and every Ferrari on the road.
Aiding the high-powered Camaro’s performance is an advanced aerodynamic design unlike any other, with a package that comes complete with a carbon fiber rear wing. The design itself was tested in a Formula 1 wind tunnel that added 300 pounds of downforce at a whopping 150 mph.
The upcoming model packs in plenty of performance-driven gear, including an onboard Chevrolet Personal Data Recorder and a specialized suspension.
We here at Stalker Chevrolet can’t wait to see the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE burn rubber in person.
The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is making a splash – and not just in the auto industry. The fresh take on the iconic Camaro has inspired a clothing line created by Detroit designer Tommey Walker, Jr.
“With the all-new Camaro, the team set out to transcend the traditional ‘pony car’ and deliver a world-class performance car, regardless of segment,” said Steve Majoros, marketing director for Chevrolet cars, in a statement. “The Camaro is a worthy contender for any performance car, which is perfectly summed up by Tommey Walker’s trademark design.”
Dubbed the “Camaro vs. Everybody” apparel line, the sportswear mirrors the style of the original “Detroit vs. Everyone” line, which was originally developed to help rebuild the image of Walker’s hometown. His T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and jackets have been seen on celebrities, sports figures, and other public figures.
“Detroit vs. Everybody started as a way to express pride in my hometown,” said Walker. “Camaro vs. Everybody serves the same purpose for Camaro fans, who know their favorite sports car is second to none.”
Stalker Chevrolet is excited to announce that for the first time in the history of NASCAR, Chevrolet will be entering a Camaro into the NASCAR Nationwide Series. The first race for the Camaro will be in February at Daytona.
The iconic Chevy will join the long line of Chevrolets to take part in NASCAR events. Chevrolet has a prestigious background in the series with ore wins, more manufacturers’ championships and more driver’s championships than any other manufacturer competing in the Nationwide Series.
The Camaro will not be identical to the Camaros that we see on the streets. While many of the distinctive styling elements that define a Camaro will still be present, the car will be made to fit the needs of the sport.
“Our team of Chevrolet designers and aerodynamic engineers did a fantastic job capturing the great looks and styling cues of the production Camaro, while providing our NASCAR Nationwide teams with a highly competitive aero platform,” said Pat Suhy, manager, Chevrolet Racing Oval Track Group.
The Camaro has a great shot at bring home a championship with its great design and historically powerful engine. Stalker Chevrolet and NASCAR fans alike are all excited to see how the Camaro will do next season.
