GM announced the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 performance figures as well as its pricing. The most powerful version Camaro ever will go on sale in spring 2012 and it will carry a starting price tag of 54,995 USD.

So just how much performance you get for that amount of money? Well we think you get a pretty sweat deal, but we’ll let the figures talk for themselves.

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 uses a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 generating 580 HP and 556 lb-ft of torque (754 Nm) which will accelerate the 6-speed automatic version from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and the 6-speed manual model in 4.0 seconds.

GM wanted to underline just how much accent was put on aerodynamics and creating downforce by the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, so they released a video in which they detail just that.

They say that lapping the Nurburgring in 7:41.27 seconds wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of the aerodynamics team, so we can only congratulate GM this time on a job well done.

GM is preparing to introduce its most powerful convertible ever at this year’s Lost Angeles Motor Show. We’re talking about the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible, a car that packs more power than a 2012 Aston Martin Volante, an SL63 AMG, a 2011 911 Turbo S or a 2011 Shelby GT500, which will go on sale in late 2012.

Power in the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible comes from a 6.2-litre LSA engine rated at 580 HP (432 kW) and 556 lb-ft (754 Nm) of torque, and its performance figures should come close to what the coupe version is capable of.
