Best of the Best 2012: Coupes & GTs: Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

  • Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
  • Paul Meyers

Equipped with a 6.2-liter V-8, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (www.chevrolet.com) is the most powerful Camaro ever. The engine produces 580 hp, enabling the ZL1 to dash from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds, or more quickly than the 510 hp Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series. It is tempting to drive this modern-day muscle car recklessly, as though you just stole it. And with a price of just $55,000—or roughly half the cost of the C63 Black—the Camaro could be considered a steal.
