Earlier this year, Chevrolet chose the 2011 Chicago Autoshow as the backdrop to unveil the 2012 Camaro ZL1 supercar. Designed as the range-topping model in the Camaro family, the ZL1 was created to take on the best from Ford and Shelby. Despite these initial statements, Chevrolet remained silent on the exact details of the car except for stating that the car would have at least 550 horsepower and a six speed manual gearbox. However in a statement at an event at the Camaro plant in Oshawa Ontario, Al Oppenheiser, director of concept and vehicle integration for GM’s Performance division, has revealed new information and details about what potential buyers can expect from this potent Camaro.
