Chevy Camaro ZL1 coming with 570+ horsepower?

Illustration for article titled 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.


This new top-of-the-line Camaro is expected to slot in between the 426 horsepower SS and the 638 horsepower Corvette ZR1, giving the ZL1 a lot of daylight. Putting itself at above 570 horsepower, as LSXTV is reporting, means GM will suddenly have an impressive variety of vehicles in the 550+ horsepower range and something to tussle with the Ford Mustang GT500.


God Bless America.

This is excellent news, but what of the Corvette Z06? Is it fair to eclipse it by this much? Certainly it can outperform the Camaro on the track, but with so many Americans that judge cars based on numbers alone, will they still buy the Z06?

"570 horsepower you say? Well it must be better!"
