2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible – Specifications, Pictures, Prices
The potent ZL1 Convertible is the high-performance variant of the reborn, retro-flavored Camaro Convertible. Also available in slightly more practical coupe form, the heavy drop-top balances aggressive looks and a 580 horsepower supercharged V8 with surprisingly good handling dynamics and ride quality thanks to GM’s trick Magnetic Ride Control system.
The ZL1 packs a more powerful version of the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 commonly found under the hood of the Cadillac CTS-V. In the ZL1, the motor is good for 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque, beating out the 1969 ZL1’s 427 cubic inch V8 by more than 150 horsepower. Helping make those impressive power figures is a 1.9-liter Roots-style supercharger that crams air into the engine with a pair of four-lobe rotors and the aid of an intercooler.
