Here’s another reason to believe the new Camaro ZL1 is a downright serious sports car. Chevy engineers have spent over a 100 hours in the wind tunnel fine tuning the car’s aerodynamic for maximum downforce. That’ll make it better at the track.

What is slightly bothering us is thinking that Chevy might overdo it with the ZL1. We do love to drive a poised, precise and well-engineered car as much as the next guy, but the ZL1 should be, before anything else, a true muscle car.
