Video: Camaro ZL1 Tears Up Inde Motorsports Track!
 

Quote:

Finally, a proper Camaro ZL1 review and feature. Watch as Carlos Lago from Motor Trend tears up the Inde Motorsports Park in Arizona.

The results of all that tearing up? Oh, just a 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds, a 12.1 quarter mile run, and a 1.0g lateral acceleration figure! See the video inside.

WOW ... 0-60 3.8

Good video!... this somewhat confirms that the car is very much capable of better numbers with different techniques.

Nice video! Quite an impressive overall package GM put together. ZL1 - Let the good times roll!

Those that think the ZL1 is a 12.5 second car are mistaken. With a good driver, and in good conditions, we'll see plenty of high 11 second runs in completely stock configurations. I wonder what time they hit exactly? Either way, not bad for a dusty track at high elevation.

My favorite part of the video was Randy's assessment of the vehicle. Good stuff. :thumbup:

This drives me crazy! Why does everyone say when the 2013 gt500 comes out we will put it up against the ZL1. Like the 2012 gt500 doesn't exist!!!!

Thats not a bad thing for a SC car. I wish they would have said the time in the 3.8 second 60ft run. WTF for leaving that info out?!?!?!?:mad0260: Finally they put a good driver in the seat! If my 1/4 mile math is correct, that 3.8 sec run would put the ZL1 at about a 11.7 second quarter mile. Nice:thumbup:

This video is fake. I heard this car can only do 4.6 0-60 and 12.7 in the 1/4 mile. Also, who cares about some track in Germany? How does that relate to any track in the USA?

Yenko boy 02-06-2012 08:07 AM

Nice review...

Well the high performance auto industry uses the Ring as the base for which a car like this can perform. If a vehicle is able to do well there, then they know that it will do very well in the states.

And why do you feel the video is fake? What does the producer of the show have to gain by giving out false informantion?

That's not a good thing either though, right? I know that high elevation affects NA much more, but you don't think the ZL1 would benefit at all from a run at a low elevation?

toilets 02-06-2012 08:22 AM

I needed this review. Thanks!

Correct. It would most likely trap 1 mph higher and gain a very small amount in the 1/4.

Exactly, this dude proved simply knowing how to bang gears with mode 5 on will net u very low bottem 12's all day long. Than knowing how to actully use the clutch and gas pedal will get u into the 11's.
Btw this is an extension of the motortrend review. ignition is a sister reviewer of motortrend.
Bring on the 2012 GT500SVTPP, for crying out loud.

Deke736 02-06-2012 08:45 AM

Nice video, thanks for posting.

So far, it seems like all videos and reviewers have been driving manual cars, I am wondering if any of these guys will get their hands on the auto version to compare the differences.

LMAO. Calm down and dont have a heart attack. I guess no review will ever be good enough for you because "you heard" it will do better.

Exactly. What I think that this video showed is what some already knew, and that is that a 1964 1/2 Mustang based on a Falcon suspension with a 170 CID 101 HP inline 6 would clearly outperform the 2012 ZL1! :sm0:

The skid pad sure seemed to be dusty and it still managed 1G.... Impressive!
