Guess my fuel economy, win a Blipshift T-shirt (ZL1 Edition)

I'm driving a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible this week. It has a 580-horsepower LSA motor under the hood. I imagine my fuel economy will be on the low side of dismal. Still, it will be fun. » 11/18/13 1:14pm 11/18/13 1:14pm

Road Tripping In A Gas Guzzler Is The Only Way To Go

In the past, the large American V8 was considered a symbol of freedom and the open road. But today, the muscly gas guzzlers are vilified as enemies of the future and a road block in the way of the good ship progress. » 9/20/12 5:30pm 9/20/12 5:30pm

How Magnets Make The Camaro ZL1 Dance Around A Race Track

Like America's national treasures, the Insane Clown Posse, I don't have a clue how magnets work. But I became determined to find out after reading about how Magnetic Ride Control helps the new Camaro ZL1 handle so well. » 8/11/12 1:30pm 8/11/12 1:30pm

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible: The Jalopnik Review

The Camaro ZL1 Coupe is one of the most surprising cars I have driven. Given its hefty waistline and reputation as a monster muscle car, the handling performance is quite astonishing. So, providing you don't wear a toupee, the convertible ZL1 should be just as impressive. » 8/06/12 12:00pm 8/06/12 12:00pm

Watch A Brit Flog The Mustang Shelby GT500 and Camaro ZL1

We share a common language, a deep pop-cultural connection and the stormy heritage of two petulant brothers, but Yanks and Brits don't always see eye-to-eye on cars. No doubt we've got a lot invested in mega horsepower machines that can devour ribbons of interstate. But can we build sports cars a European could love? » 7/05/12 3:30pm 7/05/12 3:30pm

The first 1969 ZL1 Camaro ever built crossed the auction block at last weekend's massive Mecum Spring Classic auction event in Indiana. When the bidding ended the successful buyer had agreed to pay $400,000 for this important piece of muscle car history. » 5/26/12 11:00am 5/26/12 11:00am

Chevy Will Build 69 COPO Camaros This Year

Although we suspected Chevrolet would join in the factory spec drag racing fun after they showed and track tested the COPO Camaro concept late last year, this past week they made it official. The company plans to build 69 COPO Camaros in 2012—the same amount of legendary COPO ZL1s that left the factory in 1969. » 3/11/12 11:00am 3/11/12 11:00am

Camaro ZL1 Production Stopped Over "Quality" Issue

General Motors has halted production of the top-of-the-line Chevy Camaro ZL1 over what the automaker is calling a "quality assessment" issue. What the hell does that mean? » 3/07/12 12:45pm 3/07/12 12:45pm

The First Crash Of A Camaro ZL1

When we were invited to drive the Camaro ZL1 at the Virginia International Raceway this week we considered going just to see an autojournalist put one off the track. We wouldn't have had to wait long. UPDATE! It was a journo! » 2/27/12 5:20pm 2/27/12 5:20pm

Chevy's Anti-GT500, Pro-Camaro ZL1 Smack-Talking Powerpoint

The Camaro ZL1 is built to be run hard, no doubt about it. "Track-ready" is the word of the day from the engineering team. (And we're out at Bondurant to prove it., more on that later) But it takes an extra-large bucket of stones to use a competitor's owner's manual against it. » 1/20/12 5:45pm 1/20/12 5:45pm

Camaro ZL1 is one expensive bitch at $54,995

We've seen the Camaro ZL1 looking pretty and rounding the Nürburgring in 7:41.27 and we've even peeked under its skirt. Now, ahead of the LA Auto Show, GM's released the vital numbers on its top-end Camaro to prove they're no one's bitch, least of all Ford's. It doesn't seem to be working. » 11/15/11 12:30pm 11/15/11 12:30pm

Watch the Camaro ZL1 lap the Nürburgring in 7:41.27

We first heard tell of those impressive numbers by way of the Twitter machine. Now, we've got the video of the Camaro ZL1's Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time (because it apparently did happen). » 10/06/11 8:59pm 10/06/11 8:59pm

Camaro ZL1 laps Nürburgring in 7:41:27

General Motors North American President Mark Reuss just claimed that the Chevy Camaro ZL1 has lapped the Nürburgring's Nordschleife in 7:41:27. That time places the upcoming top-of-the-line Camaro ZL1 a few tenths quicker than the Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SV. Not bad, GM. » 10/05/11 1:30pm 10/05/11 1:30pm

Chevy Camaro ZL1 coming with 570+ horsepower?

We all know the muscular Chevy Camaro ZL1's getting the same LSA V8 found in the CTS-V, but while that engine puts out 556 horsepower in the Caddy there are fresh rumors stating the ZL1 will be north of 570 horsepower. » 7/11/11 8:07pm 7/11/11 8:07pm

First non-red Camaro ZL1 features automatic transmission

From Camaro5 comes this photo of the first white Camaro ZL1, which is also the first one spotted with the optional autotragic transmission. Shouldn't it be red with embarrassment? More pics here. » 7/05/11 12:30pm 7/05/11 12:30pm

New Chevy Transformers commercial accurately depicts Chicago traffic

We've shown you the cars of Transformers 3 and the angry T3 trailer, so why not the (mostly GM) cars of T3 in a Chevy commercial that's basically a movie trailer? Also, a fairly accurate portrayal of what it's like to drive around Chicago during rush hour. » 6/06/11 1:30pm 6/06/11 1:30pm

Transformers "Dark of the Moon" Sideswipe, Bumblebee: First Look

The latest Transformers flick "Dark of the Moon" promises to be more than an extended Chevy commercial, but that doesn't mean the mechanical stars won't still be robots disguised as GM products. Here's a first look at the new ZL1-inspired Bumblebee Camaro and topless Corvette Stingray concept named Sideswipe. » 5/16/11 10:30am 5/16/11 10:30am

Drifting down under

Australia is the home of hoonage so it shouldn't come as a surprise that when they hit the track, they do it right. Even though it isn't a ZL1, this down under 1969 Camaro looks like a lot of fun. (Photo Credit: Dicktay2000) » 2/19/11 12:30pm 2/19/11 12:30pm

The Legend of the Camaro ZL1

Last week we met the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Although many thought the model designed to compete with the Mustang GT500 would be the next Camaro to wear the famous Z28 badge, Chevrolet opted for ZL1. Here's why. » 2/13/11 4:00pm 2/13/11 4:00pm

Yo! 1,700,000: Yenko Chevrolets Go For Hefty Coin at Auction

Accompanied by one of the finest-quality press-release photos we've ever seen, Mecum Auction announced that it auctioned off a set of five Yenko Chevys for 1.7 mil, which to us doesn't seem like an insane price in today's heady musclecar market, especially considering a ZL-1 Camaro sold at the same auction for $840k.… » 10/28/05 8:55am 10/28/05 8:55am
