Those who have a need for speed have just been graced with a new toy. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 offers Brandenburg area adrenaline junkies a top speed of 198 MPH, which was reached on the High Speed Oval at Germany’s Automotive Testing Papenburg GmBH. This top speed is the average achieved from running the vehicle in both directions, against and with the wind. When the wind was at its back, the ZL1 reached 202.3 MPH, while it reached 193.3 MPH when going against the wind.
“This test caps an impressive list of performance stats for the Camaro ZL1, which was designed to excel at everything,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “It’s the most capable — and fastest —Camaro ever.”
Brandenburg area Chevy drivers can receive both power and performance, all while looking and feeling good behind the wheel of the 2017 Camaro ZL1. To prove that this model is as powerful as it seems, the test included turns with 49.7-degree banking on the top line, allowing the test drivers to drive around the track without having to take their foot off the throttle.

“The ZL1 was developed with high-speed performance in mind, incorporating a balanced aerodynamic package that reduces lift without significantly affecting drag,” said Oppenheiser. “After testing the car in standard settings, which produced the 198-mph average, we set the front and rear camber adjustments to 0 degrees and the tire pressures to the maximum allowable sidewall pressure, and saw the ZL1 average over 200 mph.”
What makes this 2017 model so powerful? Its 650-horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine is definitely at the heart of its power, while the 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and Brembo brakes with six-piston Monobloc front calipers and two-piece rotors provide for great handling. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 summer-only tires measuring 285/30ZR20 in front and 305/30ZR20 in the rear also help the traction and steering, making the road smoother than ever before.
