As the fastest and the most technically advanced Camaro ever offered by Chevrolet, the ZL1 boasts a supercharged 6.2 Liter V8 engine that produces an estimated 580 horsepower and 550 plus ft/lb of torque. The 69th production of the car was up for auction this past weekend in Las Vegas, with all proceeds going to the YMCA of Southern Nevada.
This was the first 2012 Camaro ZL1 to be offered to the public and the winning bidder was Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motor Sports. For a mere $250,000, Hendrick can now customize the car’s options and pick it up next spring. It’s said to be extra collectible since it will be the only production vehicle in the Carbon Flash Metallic exterior color.
The ZL1 name is derived from the racing engine that was installed into a handful of 1969 Camaros and represented the pinnacle in Camaro performance, until now.
