Chevrolet has officially unveiled the 2017 Camaro ZL1.

Designed to "excel at everything," the model has an aggressive appearance as it features a “flow-tie” grille, a larger front splitter, and all-new hood with a heat extractor.  The sports car has also been equipped with wider front fenders, aggressive side skirts, and a prominent rear wing.  Last but not least, the Camaro ZL1 has unique 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with special Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires that were developed specifically for the model.

Interior changes are fairly limited but designers installed Recaro sport seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and a special shifter with suede upholstery.  Drivers will also find red contrast stitching and plenty of ZL1 badging.

Power is provided by a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine that produces an estimated 640 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Speaking of performance, the ZL1 comes equipped with a Magnetic Ride suspension, Brembo brakes, and an electronic limited-slip differential.  Other highlights include a Performance Traction Management system, a Driver Mode Selector, and a launch control function.

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 will go on sale late this year and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
