When Chevrolet announced the Camaro ZL1, we were just a little excited. The latest incarnation of the fastest Camaro was to have the LT4 supercharged V8 from the Corvette Z06, but with 640 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. That’s 10 less than the Z06 and on par with the Cadillac CTS-V.
Now, according to a leaked order guide posted on the Camaro 6 forums, we’ve found that the power ratings for the ZL1 will apparently be exactly the same as its Corvette brother. That means 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
That makes the ZL1 the opposite of the Shelby GT350. Of course, Ford is said to be working on a very fast GT500 and we know that Chevy is already working on a GT350-fighting Z/28, so the muscle cars wars won’t be dying down anytime soon.
