VIDEO: 2012 Camaro ZL1…Motor Trend Lets You Hear What's Under the Hood

Chevy’s answer to the Mustang GT500, the 2012 Camaro ZL1 officially debuted last month in Chicago.

The 2012 Camaro ZL1 gets all its fun from a supercharged 6.2L LSA V8 that puts out an estimated 550 horsepower and 550 lb-ft. of torque. The V8 is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox that features a twin-disc clutch. Throw in a suspension with Magnetic Ride Control, brakes developed with Brembo, a dual-mode exhaust system that alters the sound level and character in response to engine rpm and the package will make any Camaro or GM fan drool.

Although it’s still too early to be able to go check out this beauty at your nearest Chevy dealer, Motor Trend has been kind enough to post a quick video of the ZL1. Check out the sound of that engine after the jump…
