Rumor: 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to produce more than 570-hp

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is getting ready to hit U.S. roads early next year and no matter what, the model will not be as powerful as the Chevrolet Corvette. Why? Because, General Motors doesn’t want the Camaro ZL-1 stealing the Corvette’s thunder.

That’s probably the main reason that the Chevrolet Camaro isn’t getting the LS9 from the ZR1. Instead, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SLQ will be getting the LSA 6.2L supercharged V8 from the Cadillac CTS-V making 556-hp at 6,100 rpm and 550 lb-ft at 3,800 rpm. Right? Well, maybe.

Rumor has it that the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has just finished SAE testing and the model is reported to crank out more than 570-hp.

How will Ford respond with the next Shelby GT500? We’ll have to wait and see.
