“The most powerful production Camaro in history made its North American debut at the 2011 LA Auto Show. And while GM might tell you Chevy runs deep, the compelling power-to-dollar ratio of this souped-up muscle car means your pockets won't have to.” NewCarTestDrives, December 2011
The NewCarTestDrives writer, Laura Burstein, went on to describe the ZL1's performance charms: “Powering this rear-wheel-drive pony car is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that cranks out 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque, which Chevy says is good for zero-to-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Top speed is 180 mph with the 6-speed manual transmission, and, curiously, 184 mph with the optional 6-speed automatic.”
She was equally impressed with the interior: “Inside, leather upholstery and heated seats are standard, as well as rear-park assist with a rear-view camera display integrated in the center rear-view mirror. The standard nine-speaker audio system has both USB and Bluetooth connectivity.”
The Crystal Red Metallic over black 2013 ZL1 offered here is an extremely well-maintained example. Carfax documents 22 service visits—most at Chevrolet dealerships—over its 100,000-mile, 7-year life (right at the national average of 15,000 miles per-year). Delivered new at Stingray Chevrolet in Plant City, Florida, the car remained in the state until just a year ago. Its outstanding condition reflects exceptional owner care as well as life in the warm, sunny climates of central Florida.
The finish across the car's entire exterior is almost showroom-new, free of dents, dings, or even obvious minor wear. The Crystal Red Metallic is a fiery choice for what really is a hot car. From just above the front low-mounted (and damage-free) splitter, around the optional ZL1 badged carbon-fiber hood insert, over the moon-roofed-top, to the trunk-edge spoiler, the paint gleams. Glass, lighting lenses, emblems, black-out window trim and exhaust-surround are all free of obvious damage or wear. Overall, the car shows no sign of neglect or abuse. Black ten-spoke 20-inch wheels are shod in GoodYear F1 performance tires.
Inside, the black leather upholstery and dash feature tastefully complementing red deviated stitching. ZL1-embroidered logos grace the front headrests. An impressive, full analog instrument package faces the driver. The shifter for the 6-speed automatic transmission is console mounted. Floors are carpeted in black, and matching carpet mats are included. All mechanical systems—including air conditioning and premium audio—operate as they should, and control surfaces are free of wear marks.
Under the hood, beneath the large shock-tower cross-bracing bracket, the 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 engine, with its red valve covers, harbors a 580-horsepower soul. The engine bay is spotless. In the same way, the chassis shows no damage, with protective covers unmarred and in place. This ZL1 was clearly adult-owned.
The more than 125 high-definition photographs of this Camaro ZL1 taken from every angle, including from underneath, faithfully represent the car's outstanding condition. That said, we encourage in-person inspections by interested parties at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. We ask only that an advance appointment be arranged by phone or email. Our showroom is not open to the public, so your appointment helps ensure you have our full attention during your visit.
Finally, back to the car's dramatic engine note, Timothy Cain of GoodCarBadCar.com, after singing the car's praises, admitted to falling in love with the sound of the ZL1: “…I was utterly consumed by what sounded like the offspring of a mama grizzly and the king of the jungle.” Who wouldn't be smitten?
