Performance-Driven Camaro ZL1 Distinguished with Automotive Excellence Award

Chevy’s quickest Camaro ever made, the Camaro ZL1, won the performance category of the 2013 Automotive Excellence Awards from Popular Mechanics magazine.

Online PR News – 22-November-2012 – Ashland, OH – The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the fastest and most capable Camaro ever built. Equipped with a supercharged LSA small-block V8 engine producing 580 horsepower, it can go from 0-60 miles per hour in four seconds and reach a top speed of 184 miles per hour. The 2013 Camaro ZL1 was recently named a 2013 Automotive Excellence Award winner by Popular Mechanics magazine. This everyday supercar can now be found at Bill Harris GM in Ashland, OH.
“The ZL1 is great at everything and we’re very proud of that,” said Tony Roma, Camaro ZL1 program engineering manager. “You can take it to the drag strip and run 11-second quarter-miles all day long. You can also take it to a road course, where it’s balanced, handles well, and does exactly what you want – including lapping Virginia International Raceway’s Grand Course in under three minutes – and yet the ZL1 is sophisticated enough to use as a daily driver. It’s a supercar you can drive every day.”
Each year, editors of Popular Mechanics magazine choose their top 10 favorite cars of the year throughout several categories. The 2013 Camaro ZL1 won in the ‘Performance’ category. Aside from its impressive speed, the ZL1 also boasts technologically advanced and highly developed chassis and suspension systems which give it balance as well as track-ready handling and braking power to complement its high engine output.
“The ZL1's excellence isn't based solely on its prowess as a sprinter,” wrote the editors of Popular Mechanics. “This Camaro will swallow up bumpy back streets and tackle curvy canyon roads with a deftness usually reserved for a European sports car and rewards every action you take with smoothness, refinement, and ease of use.”
