Don’t look now, but Orlando-based tuner Ultimate Auto is back at it with yet another fantastic aftermarket program.
We’ve seen what the company can do when presented with a sports car. Imagine what kind of work it can produce with a muscle car, like the 2013 Chevy Camaro ZL1 ?
Well, we won’t have to wonder anymore because the Camaro ZL1 is precisely the subject of Ultimate Auto’s latest program. Aesthetically, the upgrades were mostly contained on the interior. The metallic black exterior is complemented by touches of grey and candy red with the latter being used as housing inserts for the custom JL Audio HD amplifiers and the 2 W7’s inside the cabin.
But that’s not all of it; Ultimate Auto also added a Borla cat-back exhaust system and headers to enhance its exhaust note and relieve any back pressure. From there, a K&N carbon-fiber intake system was also installed to go with that absolutely scintillating NOS system.
Just imagine the kind of damage this Camaro ZL1 can do when it’s taken to the drag strip. We can already see it leaving some poor car in a cloud of tire smoke and shame.

Considered the most powerful Camaro ever, the ZL1 is a beast in every sense of the word. And then some.
It does retain the "old" look of the current generation, which shouldn’t be the case, but still, it still has that modern-day classic visage that has appealed to a lot of people.
But the Camaro ZL1 has a monster hiding under its hood: an all-aluminum 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine rated at 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque. The powerhouse engine can be mated to either a TREMEC six-speed manual or Hydra-Matic 6L90 automatic transmission and boasts of a 0-to-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 184 mph.
