Ride of the Week: 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

It might share its name with the mullet-piloted muscle cars of your youth, but the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is far from those bare-bones affairs. It’s powered by a supercharged 6.2L V-8 producing 640 hp, paired to either a rev-matching six-speed manual or a sophisticated 10-speed automatic. Technological advancements are also apparent in the Magnetic Ride suspension, user-selectable Driver Modes, Launch Control, and modern connectivity features. The exterior exudes the car’s aggressive nature, with 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, Brembo brakes, 11 heat exchangers for optimal cooling, a carbon fiber insert and heat extractor in the hood, and a wing-style rear spoiler.
