The all new Camaro ZL1 is generating a lot of talk around it’s new progressive styling. Some may say it’s a departure of all things classic about the American muscle car, but others may say it’s just part of evolution. I take the side of the latter. But regardless of which side you stand on, there’s no denying the fact that the new Camaro ZL1 is a potential Hellcat slayer.

Chevrolet is set to officially debut the car at the upcoming New York Auto Show, but information about the car has already leaked all over the internet. Under the hood will be a 6.2L V8 that’s supercharged and good for 640hp and 640lb/ft of torque. The motor is essentially a tuned version of the Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V’s motor. The American company is doing something that most manufacturers today aren’t doing, sticking a standard transmission to an immensely powerful motor. They will also produce a 10 speed auto gearbox as an option for those who want it.

Getting back to the looks, the ZL1 is full of wide body work, sweeping body lines, vents, and LEDs. All of which comes together in unison to create a very visually appealing package. The overall physical prescience of the ZL1 is muscle and performance. The car also features an intake/vent hump on the hood line which looks to be a separate unit from the hood itself.

Regardless of how this new Camaro gets received by the public, one thing we do know is that it’s a potent package and major competition for Dodge and their Hellcats. Happy hunting!
