A stock 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has laid down a supercar-demolishing 11.9 seconds on a quarter-mile track. The chill-inducing runs were done twice, once by a stock-trim Camaro with automatic transmission and once by one sporting a stick shift. The cars reached 116 and 117 miles per hour during their runs.
The stick-shift Camaro ZL1 comes with a technology, dubbed launch control, that gives drivers the ability to select which rpm speed the engine will be at when the vehicle is launched. Also, helping the ZL1s reach such impressive speeds so quickly was the track’s performance traction management system that maximizes traction while cutting down on engine torque and tire-spinning and smoky starts.
