2011 LA: 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible drops its top in LA

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe hasn’t even made it to dealerships yet and GM is already releasing the drop top version of the car today in Los Angeles. Sales of the most power Chevrolet convertible ever will start in late 2012.

Like the ZL1 coupe, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible is powered by a 6.2 liter supercharged LSA V8 making 580-hp with a peak torque of 556 lb-ft. Chevy says that’s enough to exceed the output of 2+2 convertibles of many performance icons, including the Aston Martin DB9 Volante and Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG. Of course it also beats the car’s closest (and most realistic competitor) the 2011 Ford Shelby G500 Convertible, which produced 550-hp.

Prices and other specifications will be revealed closer to launch date.
