Very few production cars can say in a voice well high that they exceed the barrier of 300 miles per hour, but many less are the ones that boast of being above 200 miles per hour, a figure that is in our metric system translates as 321 km/h. Usually these figures are the scope of a few supercars with a market share invaluable. That’s why this news is even more surprising.
The Chevrolet Camaro, in its origins, was a muscle car american who could boast of a giant engine under its hood but, as all the other cars of this segment, neither the maximum speed nor the step-by-curve were precisely to their strengths. The passing of the years haven’t been bringing cars more complete and balanced in all the senses, so much so that today the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has already managed to overcome the barrier of 200 mph, although with some trap.
maximum speed official of this car is 198 mph and, apparently, Chevrolet had the thorn nailed by only 2 mph. To do this again to test your precious vehicle and did so in a large test track in germany. In a first time recorded a maximum speed of 193,3 mph, while rolling with the wind against it. When travelling on the test track in the opposite direction, wind, speed meter came to register 202,3 mph.
Chevrolet pulled out his spine, although we do not believe that it may approve a higher rate. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is powered by a V8 6.2-liter supercharged eroga 650 HP. It is associated to a automatic transmission 10-speed that, according to the brand itself, it is faster than the PDK from Porsche. It is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and perform in the quarter mile 11.4 seconds. Some figures more typical of a supercar that of a muscle car.
