60 grand is what it costs these days to have a 580 horsepower drop-top muscle car.
Chevy revealed the official pricing for the new Camaro ZL1 Convertible and it’s $60,445. Still good value, considering the package you receive. The Convertible will be more fun to drive and live with than the coupe, while the performance difference is negligible.
The ZL1’s state of the art powertrain is a 6.3 liter supercharged V8 developing 580 horsepower (432 kW) and 556 lb.-ft. of torque (754 Nm). The new Shelby GT500 Convertible will beat it with 662 horsepower, but as we discovered in the numerous head to head tests we featured, the ZL1 is the better choice is you are not planning to use it at the track all the time. And who would use a convertible car at the track?
The suspension of the ZL1 convertible uses the third-generation of Magnetic Ride. New, twin-wire/dual-coil dampers at all four corners enable faster response, with damping levels now adjusted up to 1,000 times per second – about one adjustment per inch of vehicle travel at 60 mph – making the system exceptionally responsive to changing driving and road conditions.
