There are truly some amazing 2012 model cars coming, if not here already, and one that recently hit the headlines was the Chevy Camaro ZL1. The reason for the sudden interest is due to the fact that this new model has exceeding price expiations. Instead of costing around $50,000, the first model went to auction and got $250,00 — now why would anyone want to pay that for a muscle car?
However, we should not lose sight of why it fetched so much money, it was because the proceeds were going to the YMCA of Southern Nevada, which was the charity of choice for Hendricks Motorsports, as the Examiner reports. We do not expect to see the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 until early next year, which is also when the buyer will receive theirs.
We have to say that this is the best version of the Camaro that Chevy has made for many years, and we just hope that drivers feel the same, as it would be a shame for the car to be just another model? What makes this version so special is how it helps to commemorate the 1969 Camaro ZL1, which as most of you will know is a true legend.
The new incarnation of the ZL1 will come with a very powerful 6.2 liter V8, which produces 580hp. We cannot say how well it will handle, but do not expect anything like you get from a German made car. We are sorry to upset true American car fans, but it’s a fact that Muscle cars are made for speed in a straight line, and cannot seem to handle a corner like a BMW or an Audi.
