2017 Camaro Goes 200mph
Yes, you read that right. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 hit 202.3 mph. This happened while testing the car on the 7.6-mile long high-speed oval at Germany’s Automotive Testing Papenburg ground. The official top speed read 198 mph, but the average is achieved by running the car in both directions and compensating for wind.
“It’s the most capable – and fastest – Camaro ever,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, in a press release.
The ZL1 tester was packing the available 10-speed automatic transmission and a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 tires set at 44psi. The car is powered by a 650-hp, 650-lb-ft 6.2-liter supercharged V-8. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has a starting price of $63,435 when you opt for the six-speed manual, and $65,830 when you go with the 10-speed automatic.
