Muscle cars used to be simple and honest instruments of speed for people who don’t want to read a 100 page manual before setting off. Nowadays though, American muscles need to utilize all kind of electronic witchcraft to keep up the pace with European sportscars. This video Chevrolet has released boasts the new Camaro ZL1’s Launch Control system.
Sure, this system helps you get the best out of the 580 hp the car’s massive V8 provides, but I don’t know, none of this electronic stuff are cool. It won’t be satisfying doing 0 to 60 in 5, 4 or 3 seconds with the LC as it is doing it using only the engine and the clutch! Maybe I’m wrong, but I prefer raw, mechanical performance.
