Camaro ZL1: A Street Legal Race Car With the Podium Spot to Prove it – Video
In an unprecedented move, General Motors lent AutoGuide a Camaro ZL1 from the press fleet to race competitively against track-prepped cars with race tires. This is the story of how some good ‘ol American muscle earned more than just a podium finish; it earned respect.
Having tested Chevrolet’s segment-busting Camaro ZL1 earlier this year at Virginia International Raceway, I came away from that experience with a touch of post-traumatic stress disorder. I simply did not expect the ZL1 – a 4,100-lb behemoth – to corner with the kind of unrelenting grip and at-the-limit poise as it demonstrated around VIR. Nor did I expect a $55,000 retro-style sports coupe to have one of the most effective and tunable traction control systems I’ve ever tested, as well as magneto-rheological shock absorbers that adjust damping levels up to 1,000 times a second.
