Leaks have come out, providing details about the upcoming Camaro Z28. The information was heard from the U.S. Chevrolet dealers' meeting. The scoop actually came from Camaro5’s BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet. We learned that the Camaro Z28 is referred to internally as the "HP Edition.” Production starts on January 1, 2012 and its engine will be powered by a 6.2 liter supercharged engine.
The HP Edition will be fitted with a Magnetic Ride suspension and will come with 285F/330R tires.
The hood will feature a louvre/slat design (which was observed in previous spy shots) and the interior gets modest updates with brighter trim-work.
It’s also believed that GM may choose the 6.2 liter LSA V8 from the Cadillac CTS-V. It may also provide several small modifications for the next Z28. That engine has an output of 556 bhp (415 kW) and 551 lb-ft of torque (746 Nm). [via camaro5]
