Camaro ZL1 hits 320 km/h with 10-speed automatic transmission 

With a top speed of 318 km/h, the Camaro ZL1 Coupe is the ‘fastest Camaro ever.’ Chevrolet recently put the ZL1’s performance capabilities to the test on the High Speed Oval at Germany’s Automotive Testing Papenburg GmBH proving ground. Boasting a 650-horsepower, 6.2L V8 supercharged LT4 engine, with 10-speed automatic transmission, the ZL1 Coupe was able to achieve a 0-100 time of just 3.5 seconds. Engine performance aside, the ZL1’s aerodynamic design incorporates a balanced aerodynamic package that reduces lift without significantly affecting drag. Special aero features include a stanchion rear spoiler that offers an advantageous lift/drag ratio compared to a blade-style rear spoiler, and a patent-pending auxiliary transmission oil cooler cover that reduces front-end lift with no drag penalty. The front-to-rear aero balance was also fine-tuned for high-speed stability.
