Despite its previous problems, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is still an amazing car who has stolen the hearts of many car enthusiast. And as a proof of what an amazing car it is, the ZL1 has now officially joined the "11-second" club, as engineers recently turned an 11.93-seconds at 116-mph quarter-mile elapsed time run in a showroom-stock Camaro ZL1 automatic. A Camaro ZL1 manual ran an 11.96-second ET at 117 mph. This result comes shortly after the car lapped the famous Nürburgring in 7:41.27.
The only "special equipment" this car was wearing were a pair of the factory-issued Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires developed specifically for it. Everything else was stock from factory.
"The ZL1 is great at everything and we’re very proud of that," said Tony Roma, Camaro ZL1 program engineering manager. "You can take it to the drag strip and run 11-second quarter-miles all day long. You can also take it to a road course, where it’s balanced, handles well, and does exactly what you want – including lapping Virginia International Raceway’s Grand Course in under three minutes – and yet the ZL1 is sophisticated enough to use as a daily driver. It’s a supercar you can drive every day."
