Camaro ZL1 runs the quarter-mile in 11.93-seconds at 116 mph

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."


It surprised me with its capability to achieve that time record in a limited speed.

Joining the 11-second club of Camaro ZL1 might attract more car enthusiasts.

This record is really jaw dropping.

Ever since I’m a fan of Camaro, and the time recorded at the quarter-mile run is another milestone for Chevrolet.

It’s considerably better because of the speed limit.

Camaro will be my forever favorite. The 11.93 seconds at a quarter mile is not a joke.

It has an impressive capability, but I don’t like its style.

If it wasn’t running at that speed, I bet it could even beat its own record of 11.93 seconds.

Well, I wonder how better it can do if it ran at a greater speed. I think it hasn’t given its best performance yet.

I don’t think it is slow, like everyone else is saying. It’s impressive considering its speed limit.

I have to see it with my own eyes; I seriously think that Camaro ZL1 is too large to be capable of running that speed in such time.

It barely made a difference. I still classify it under the 12-second club.

It’s surprising that Camaro ZL1 can run under 12 seconds! I thought it would be a lagging vehicle because of its built.

The 4 split seconds was a big deal. I don’t know whether I should be impressed or not with this.

I agree with the fact that it is great with everything, but I think it’s still sort of slow. I can’t blame it for being heavy though. Only a few split seconds, and it’s eliminated from the 11-second club.
