Thumbs up Delivered! ZL1 owners first driving impressions


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


If you don't yet fully understand what amazing means, look no further: it means ZL1 !!!
I just got mine today in Cleveland. It's number 220 and it's just amazing!

It's the best sports car I ever drove so far, and the list includes Porsche 911, Porsche Cayman R; Mercedes C63 AMG coupe, M3 coupe, CTS-V coupe.

The steering is light and fluent, the manual transmission is butter and very short, the suspension is firm but not rough, the brakes are strong, the engine and torque are overwhelming (so I moved the setting from 2 to wet) the sound is astounding and the looks is better than in the pictures. I only drove it 40 miles today and sorry, it didn't get a wash yet. I already forgot the 5 months wait time and I have a big smile on my face and in my heart. It's an amazing car and it was worth the wait. Thanks GM for building the best (affordable) sports car yet!!!

Enjoy the pictures. I'm going back to lay my bed in the garage (after my dear wife falls asleep)

The great news is that your ZL1 looks Awesome!
The bad news is that with those looks and that LSA sound, you may find that certain blue lighted cars are attracted to yours. Hope that radar detector in your picture is a good one ...

Congratulations!

Mr. R -

on behalf of everyone from GM - from 'Team Camaro' and the Oshawa Build Team to our suppliers and everyone else....THANK YOU for your patience.

We truly hope that the wait was worth it and that you will figure a way to deal with "Ultra-Grin" --

We hope this will be the best car you've ever owned!

Meanwhile - I will be driving thru Cleveland tomorrow night on my way to Pittsburgh in "Bro Zeke" and we'll rev the engine to salute you and Number 220!
