2011 SLP Camaro ZL1

The year was 1969, and the muscle car wars were in full swing. Each one of the big three had developed their own version of the ultimate high-performance big-block engine.

Then Chevrolet unleashed the ZL1®, the most powerful 427- cubic inch engine ever released
by General Motors. Based on an exotic aluminum block, the ZL1® offered only the best components from the L88 engine including a high-compression piston, high-flow aluminum heads and intake, and a bulletproof bottom end. In all, only 69 Camaros and 2 Corvettes were ever produced with the ZL1® making it one of the rarest and most desirable big-blocks ever made.

Now, in the tradition of that legendary ZL1® Camaro of yesteryear, SLP presents the 2011 ZL® Camaro.

Only 69 will be built for 2011; all with a 750HP Supercharged 427ci powerplant; and they’ll go fast! Literally.
