Very few production cars can say in a very loud voice that they exceed the 300 km / h barrier, but much less are those who claim to be above 200 miles per hour, a number that in our metric system translates as 321 Km/hr . Normally these figures are within the reach of a few super sports cars with an inestimable market share. That is why this news is even more surprising.
The original Chevrolet Camaro was an American muscle car that could boast a gigantic engine under its hood but, like all cars in this segment, neither top speed nor cornering was precisely its strengths. Over the years you have not been bringing more complete and balanced cars in every way, so much so that today the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has already managed to overcome that barrier of 200 mph, but with some cheating.
The official top speed of this vehicle is 198 mph and, apparently, Chevrolet had the spiny nailed by only 2 mph. To do this they returned to test their precious vehicle and they did it in a great test track of German. At first, they registered a top speed of 193.3 mph, although they were rolling against the wind. On the test track in the opposite direction, with the wind in favor, the speedometer reached 202.3 mph.
Chevrolet pulled its thorn, although we do not believe that it will be able to homologate a higher speed. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 that drives 650 hp. It is associated with a 10-speed automatic transmission which, according to the brand itself, is faster than the Porsche PDK. It is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and perform in the quarter mile in 11.4 seconds. A number more typical of a supercar than a muscle car.
