The common link these all have is ZL1 RESPECT

4.3 seconds from 0-60 isn't too bad. They don't say what the DA was. Wonder if they let the IAT get too warm before launching. That reduces timing advance big time with the Corvettes. Assuming they did things right then I'm afraid the mph isn't indicative of an 11 second car if 116 is best.

I swear I read it was cold in at least one of those reviews, so we might be stuck with that 116... I still think it has some top-11s in it by great drivers and on good tracks, but only time will tell :drool:

Here's a test sheet from Car and Driver

ok so it was cold and the tires had 32 psi equals no traction. It will do better then 12.3.......

73vette 01-17-2012 05:00 PM

Sweet!!!

c4maroboy 01-17-2012 05:03 PM

good reading material!

b4z 01-17-2012 05:31 PM

Ultra high performance tires are worthless in the cold.
0-60 times tell me that there were traction issues.
119 mph trap speed tells me that there is a lot of hp.
This car will see 11s no prob with the right conditions.

Temperatures ranged from 34.2F wet to 46.4F dry. The ZL1 can do much better, the tires being the limiting factor.

afirehawk1 01-17-2012 06:31 PM

Very cool!

camaro_RS 01-17-2012 06:33 PM

I'm not a huge car guy but that is baaaaaaaaaaaaad a**!!! Quite a bit of dissing on the interior. I don't think it's too bad, but I still don't care for that steering wheel. It would be sweeter if it said Camaro, or ZL1, or something IMO.

MT is showing 3.8 0-60 and 12.1 quarter...quite the difference.

Much better there. I only clicked on the first one. http://www.automobilemag.com/feature...ort/specs.html

117 and 119 trap speed is high 11's all day long...

Bromaro 01-17-2012 08:56 PM

Cant wait for the head to head numbers with the GT500!

Scott@Bjorn3D 01-17-2012 09:00 PM

Also the motor has only 770 miles on her. She will run 0-60's in the high 3's after she gets around 5K-7K miles on her.

So overall the ZL1 is being well received. That's good news for Camaro lovers everywhere. :)

grocerygetter 01-17-2012 10:52 PM

That was some fun literature. Good job GM.

. The ZL1's wheels measure 20 inches in diameter (as opposed to 19 for the other guys), available in two styles with three finishes and fitted with Goodyear F1 Supercar Gen II unidirectional tires (285/35ZR front, 305/35ZR rear).

Autoweek's review. 2 styles and 3 finishes on the wheels.

Well, I am glad to see these reviews get out there and even happier to see that the car performed as well as it was expected to. Quite frankly, it seems like too many people were down in the mouth around here after the November information was released and all that went on with that other car company. This is refreshing, at the least.

KILLER74Z28 01-18-2012 12:55 AM

All great reads... It's nice to see some positive words about the ZL1! ;)

DoggyB22 01-18-2012 01:37 AM

So many pictures I don't know which one to use for my background!!!
