The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a high performance variant of the 5th generation Camaro.

It's been long rumored a more potent version of the Camaro was on its way, but it was at the 2011 Chicago Motor Show that the model was officially confirmed and presented.

Powered by a supercharged version of the 6.2 litre LSA V8, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has 550 horsepower and 550 lb-ft. (677 Nm) of torque at its disposal. The power is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission. It is the "MG9" version of the transmission, which has a higher torque capacity. The transmission is matched with a twin-disc clutch and new, shorter-throw shifter.

The ZL1 name is derived from the all-aluminum racing engine of the same name, which was developed in the late 1960s and installed into a handful of regular-production 1969 Camaros. Only 69 were built with the engine, and today they are highly sought after.

"Everything about the ZL1's design is directly related to its technology and serious performance, especially aerodynamics," said Ed Welburn, vice president, Global Design. "Our designers' goal was to execute that function-oriented design with beautifully sculpted forms, creating an imposing, powerful persona. Function becomes the aesthetic. The intent is a car that delivers on the attitude it projects."

The most significant exterior upgrades for the Camaro ZL1 include the new front facia and aluminium hood with integrated vents. The ZL1's hood includes a signature center section constructed of carbon fiber and rendered in satin black finish. Also fitted are new sidesills, wider tires, 20 inch wheels, and a new dual-mode exhaust system, which alters the sound level and character in response to engine rpm.

The suspension system of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 features completely revised tuning and the inclusion of segment-exclusive Magnetic Ride Control. The ZL1's Magnetic Ride system includes driver selectable modes (Tour and Sport) tailored to the driver's tastes. The system uses magneto-rheological technology to produce customizable shock damping for better body control and performance.

The Camaro ZL1 features an upgraded braking system, developed in conjunction with the guys at Brembo. The large 14.6-inch (370 mm) two-piece front rotors have six-piston calipers; the 14.4-inch (365 mm) rear rotors have four-piston calipers.

The interior of the Camaro ZL1 features a redesigned steering wheel, alloy pedals, Head-Up Display with unique performance readouts and the "four-pack" auxiliary gauge system featuring a boost readout. In addition the ZL1 has heated leather seats with microfiber inserts and ZL1 logos embroidered on the front headrests. Microfiber suede is repeated as an accent on the instrument panel, adding a richer look to the interior.
