Cool The One With The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - World's Fastest Car Show Episode


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


Not sure if you have seen this before, good vid of Justin Bell tearing around in a ZL1. See, other Mustang drivers appreciate this car.

Quote:
The Camaro ZL1, a parking structure and permission to drive flat out, would you say no? Neither could we. Watch as Justin unleashes the fury of the beastly ZL1 in the ultimate concrete playground before taking it to the track to experience the car's inherent track capabilities. Between the screeching wheels and the Inferno Orange paint scheme, this Camaro ZL1 is impossible to ignore; especially if you're the cops.

Guy is funny talking about "the 69 ZL1 was a success" and this one is a tribute. Dude doesn't know what he's talking about. Look, I have a ZL1, so do yall, I have the t shirt that says DNA match, and the matching hat, but the only thing our cars have in common with the '69 is that they are Camaros, ok, and have a ton of hp. Hell, the new Z/28 seriously is really a lot closer to a 69 ZL1. A Stripped down 427 Camaro

How does the SS create negative downforce? Too much air getting below it or air moving faster over than below creating lift? Just curious...

Cool video.

Cool video.
The same way an airplane wing does. If you look at the car from the side, you have a swooping hood and a giant opening into the engine bay that just guzzles air.

The swoop in the hood creates a low pressure zone since the air loses velocity as it travels over the swoop thus creating a low pressure zone where as at the same time, air is slamming into the engine bay at a relatively unobstructed path. This creates a zone of higher pressure. It may not be a ton but it's just enough to create lift. Now do that for the entire car. The bottom of the car is a relatively straight path (High pressure zone) and the air passing over the car creates a low pressure zone and all of the individual pressure zones add up to a negative down force vector or in other words, a positive lift vector.

EDIT: video. skip to 45 seconds in.

Correct, and it is designed this way intentionally to increase mpg.

What he's saying about the 69 ZL1 is BS. There were only 69 built, a success no, legendary, yes. That's where the DNA comes from, the 69 ZL1 was not a production car like today's version.

But they bring high six figures today, something else our 12-13's won't be doing either.

Bernoulli's principle right? Makes sense, thanks.
