ALTON, Va. — The 2012 Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful production Camaro ever built and rivals the Chevrolet Corvette in overall performance.
Under the Camaros hood is a supercharged 580-hp V-8 that produces 556 pounds-feet of torque. Its a real head snapper.
Equally important in the cars creation were the exhaust “notes,” the cool sounds emitted from the exhaust system. GMs engineers worked for a year to create the right notes.
Why are these notes so important?
“The exhaust is a clue to the soul of the car. It is a character of the car,” said Tony Roma, Camaro program engineering manager. “It is part of the signature of the car.”
