New 184MPH Chevy Camaro ZL1 Coupe Priced from $54,995


General Motors has just dropped new information on its high-performance Camaro ZL1 coupe that goes on sale in the spring of 2012.
Packing a 580-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96km/h) in 3.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h) while completing the quarter mile in 12.0 seconds when equipped with a 6sp automatic transmission.
The six-speed manual gearbox model is slightly slower as it goes from 0 to 60mph in 4.0 seconds, tops out at 180 mph (289 km/h) and does the quarter mile in 12.1 seconds.
We also learn today that the ZL1 will carry an MSRP of $54,995 (equal to €40,300) including a $900 delivery fee for the manual model. The automatic transmission is a $1,185 extra.
Not that it makes much sense, but GM released a list that compares the output figures and pricing of the Camaro ZL1 with a bunch of European sports cars such as the Audi R8 GT and the Maserati GranTurismo.
“With 0 to 60 taking less than four seconds, and a top speed in excess of 180 mph, the power and acceleration of the Camaro ZL1 rivals many supercars,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer.
“And, horsepower is only half of the story, as the most significant measurement of the ZL1’s potential is lapping the Nurburgring in 7:41.27. That is a great testament to the power, braking, grip, and balance of the Camaro ZL1, and to the well-rounded performance of the ZL1 that sets the bar for the sports-car segment," he added.
The 2012 Camaro ZL1 Coupe will be joined by an open top variant that will go on sale in the summer of 2012 as a 2013MY. GM said that pricing for the Camaro ZL1 Convertible will be announced later
