Costs of bringing in and converting Chevy Camaro ZL1 in Australia are very high

Because of the fact that local automobile manufacturer, Holden, has stopped production in the country. Australia is about to lose its homegrown muscle cars now that the Commodore has come its way as the Opel Insignia’s variant. However, Crossover Car Conversions, Australia’s leading import and conversion specialist since 1990, that has a wide array of choices from a Mustang, Camaro, to Ford GT, is offering a right-hand drive Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 as an alternative.

But it isn’t that simple. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has a base price of $63,435 with a six-speed manual, and if you want a 10-speed manual, it will cost you $65,830. But it doesn’t end there. Having the car shipped all the way to Australia will means you’ll have to add shipping fees and local taxes. So, getting the ZL1 and then converting it to a right-hand drive will be very costly. In fact, simply swapping the steering wheel will cost you another $33,700 (44,000 Australian dollars), and after adding all the other costs, the Camaro will have a price tag price of around $115,000 ($150,000 AUD).

With a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that can yield up to 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) and 650 pound-feet (880 Newton-metres) of torque, the ZL1 is actually the fastest Camaro ever, having a top speed of 198 miles per hour (318 kilometers per hour). Furthermore, due to its 10-speed automatic rapid acceleration, it can shift much faster than a Porsche dual-clutch PDK - that in just 3.5 seconds, it can sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour). The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is definitely one powerful machine.

Chevy Camaro SS confirmed to reach the land down under in late 2018

In Australia, factories of GM-owned subsidiary Holden, have closed and so the automaker is looking for ways to keep the fans of the performance brand loyal. Despite the fact that the Mustang is the current best seller as it continues to outsell other sports cars in the region, Holden Special Vehicles and Chevy will work together on a plan to introduce the Camaro to the Australian market next year.

In 2018, Chevrolet will be selling the Camaro SS through the same dealer network, according to Wheels Mag. Of course, HSV engineers will convert the left-hand drive Camaro into right-hand drive for Australia. Under the hood, it will still have the 6.2 liter V8, allowing it to produce 455 horsepower (339 kilowatts).

As usual, the Camaro won’t come cheap. In Australia, one could get it for $80,000 AUD ($62,675 USD). For comparison’s sake, the entry level Mustang with a 2.3 liter EcoBoost engine starts at $44,990 AUD ($57,425 USD). On the other hand, for $57,499 AUD ($73,380 USD), customers can get the Mustang GT with a V8 engine that is paired with an automatic gearbox. According to GM, due to the $20,000 price difference, the Camaro and the Mustang are not to be considered direct competitors in the region.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is not legal in Europe

As we know, only the fastest and most worthy cars take on the Nurburgring, and one of those models include the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE with a lap time of 7:16.04. Though it may not be the record holder, it still made its mark around the Green Hell. One thing we have just learned though is that this model will never make it to European streets, this is because of the European pedestrian safety standards.

Unlike the standard ZL1, the ZL1 1LE variant overall has a more aggressive body kit, front splitter, massive front dive planes and a huge carbon-fiber rear wing. These aerodynamic components make it extra aggressive and a menace on the track, according to Motor Trend. Apart from good looks, the main purpose of the dive planes is to cool the car down, while adding downforce when on the track, but this also makes the vehicle more threatening to pedestrians, according to EU safety rules. In fact, giving the ZL1 LE the dive planes alone are enough reason to buy the car, while also making it illegal on the road.

If you want to convert your standard ZL1 to a 1LE, you will have to shell out an extra $7,500 over the ZL1’s standard price, which includes a number of upgrades. Both trims come equipped with a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 with 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) and 650 pound-feet (880 Newton-metres) of torque. The main difference is that the 1LE gives it a diet where it loses 60 pounds (27 kilograms) off the standard ZL1 - thanks to its thinner rear windows, and fixed rear seats.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 race car prepares for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series

Chevrolet has been pretty lucky in races they have participated in. From the Chevrolet SS, the Impala, to the Camaro. Recently, the company introduced the Camaro ZL1, which will be the race car they will use for the 2018 season.

To give you a little bit of a back story, the Chevrolet SS has won around 70 MENCS races for the company since it replaced the Impala in 2013. Besides that, the company has also used a Camaro in the Xfinity Series in the same year.

In the past four years, Chevrolet has been running the SS performance sedan, but since it is going out of production this year, they needed a replacement, and this is how the 2018 Camaro ZL1 enters the picture. The ZL1 is powered by a supercharged 650 horsepower V8 so the manufacturer is pretty confident to race this model.

Porsche has created some of the world’s most iconic and timeless vehicles. One of them is the oblong-shaped Porsche 911, a timeless beauty impossible to duplicate. The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS is one of these timeless beauties and is particularly famous (and coveted) amongst collectors. The 911 was a big hit in the early 70s because of the 2.7 RS, Porsche’s “hardcore homologation special” which ultimately became a fearsome track contender. The year after the release of the 2.7 RS, Porsche wanted to do something out of the ordinary and thus released the 3.0-liter RS, stepping its game up in the race track.

This super rare 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS is considered to be more special than its 1973 predecessor and is quite a sight to behold for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

To know that these collector’s items still exist is quite thrilling especially for fans and collectors alike. Recently, it has been reported that one of six examples of the right-hand drive Carrera 3.0 RS can be found in the United Kingdom. Let’s take a look.

Hennessey Performance recently published a riveting video showing The Exorcist’s 959.32 hp and 756.29 lb-ft of torque on the rear wheels.

As it turns out, the tuner from Texas wants to announce to the world that “The Exorcist” Camaro ZL1 could cast out an incredible 959 hp on the Dyno test. It isn’t even close to the SRT Demon’s 840 hp at the crankshaft.

The theory is based on actual math, starting with the fifteen percent “drivetrain loss” on the Demon’s 1,103 hp. As for the ZL1, the boosted performance was made possible by Hennessey’s decision to upgrade the Camaro’s ECU, intakes and supercharger. Needless to say, the competition between Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and Hennessey Performance Engineering’s Chevy Camaro is heating up even more.

It’s pretty neat if you possess something of an extraordinary breed like, say, the Pagani Huayra. There are after all just a total of 100 units ever been built by the exotic car manufacturer. As with every new Pagani supercar, each client can collaborate with the team to help create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece -- where science meets art. Out of the 100 examples however, there are actually two right-hand-drive Huayra’s that came out as part of their deal with Mercedes-AMG— the company that supplied its engine.

For those who have been wondering what happened to the two RHD Huayras, well, a UK dealer has recently listed the exclusive supercar for the price of $2,360,410 (that’s equivalent to £1,849,990 in the UK). On the listing, the dealer said the car comes in the same factory color (Dubai Red) with exposed carbon fiber and glossy top coat protective film. The set of wheels on the other hand is specified to come in silver finish.

Elsewhere, the Dubai Red Pagani Huayra is fitted with black leather for most of its interior finishing. For contrast, the dark surface feature aluminum trims, naked carbon fiber accessories and red stitching to match the black leather upholstery.

Contacting Father Damien Karras, Hennessey’s new “ExorcistChevrolet Camaro ZL1 is getting out of control! We already know that Dodge is well on its way to unwrap its very own SRT Demon Challenger. Not to be outdone, Hennessey is also out to steal the limelight with its very own---The Exorcist. The horror of all horrors!

Hennessey Performance Engineering has created a 1000hp monster out of the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1-- and even naming it after one of the “most profitable” horror movies ever made. But, way before Hennessey had cast its evil chants on the poor Camaro, the devilish muscle car already packs a strong 650hp and 650 lb ft-of torque. As if the Hellcats and SRT Demons aren’t good enough. Or should we say, “bad enough” for the hell’s standards.

With the new package, the 6.2-liter LT4 V8 receives a modified ECU, new larger intakes and an updated intercooler. Aside from the sufficiently large supercharger, Hennessey further enhanced the engine with long tube stainless steel headers, ported factory heads and high performance camshaft. Overall, this provides the LT4 with an extra 350hp and 316lb-ft of torque.

Chevrolet has long been known to set new standards in terms of performance every time it releases a new model. The brand has once again shown this to be true with the track-capable Camaro model, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE.

Already recognized to be tuned for the tracks, the 1LE blueprint was not simply utilized by Chevrolet for this new model. In fact, prepare to be amazed with its new levels of performance and sophistication.

Aside from having been given aerodynamic technologies, it has been fitted with a suspension that is clearly based on racing.

How fast can a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 actually go? Considering the amount of power lurking underneath its line-laden bonnet, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is capable of achieving a top speed that goes beyond 200 mph (322 km/h). But then, nothing is official unless Chevrolet exerts effort to prove how fast the Camaro ZL1 could go.

With nothing but top speed as the goal, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 took the challenge and proceeded to the High Speed Oval of Automotive Testing Papenburg GmbH in Germany. Keep in mind that this particular 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is nearly all stock – as the modifications made only involved the addition of mandatory safety equipment and data logging equipment.

Take note that even a stock Camaro ZL1 already features several special performance-enhancing parts -- balanced enough to reduce lift while not affecting drag. Chevrolet fitted the 2017 Camaro ZL1 with special aerodynamic elements like a stanchion rear spoiler that is considered to be capable of delivering a lift/drag ratio better than a blade-style rear spoiler. Moreover, the carmaker fitted the 2017 Camaro ZL1 with a patent-pending auxiliary transmission oil cooler cover that could lower front-end lift without affecting drag. Chevrolet also tuned the coupe’s front-to-rear aero balance to offer better high-speed stability.

Wondering how fast the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in actual driving? To provide customers a good idea on how fast the 2017 Camaro ZL1 could really get, Chevrolet recently had it driven in one of the most challenging road tracks in the world – at Nurburgring. This 13-mile circuit is technically a public road, sans the speed limit. It boasts of sweeping curves, significant climbs and drops, variable surfaces, and a straightaway that stretches for more than a mile. Over the decades, the Nurburgring has been considered as a definitive one-lap test that has become a yardstick that measures the true worth of production cars.

Considering how Chevrolet cornered all ends to make the 2017 Camaro ZL1 special both in looks and performance, it was not surprising to learn that the most recent Nurburgring run has led to a new record. A recent footage released by the American carmaker has shown the 2017 Camaro ZL1 cruising through the Nurburgring, recording a lap time of 7:29.60.

This means that the next generation Camaro is a lot faster than its predecessor, which had completed the same circuit with a time of 7:41.27. Compared to other production cars, the new Camaro ZL1 is faster in the Nurburgring than the Mercedes SLS AMG GT (lap time of 7:30.00), Porsche 911 GT2 (lap time of 7:31.00), Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio (lap time of 7:32.00) and Porsche 911 Turbo S (lap time of 7:32.00). However, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is slower than the Porsche Carrera GT (lap time of 7:28.71), McLaren MP4-12C (lap time of 7:28.00), Ferrari 458 Italia (lap time of 7:28.00) and BMW M4 GTS (lap time of 7:27.88). Overall, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is the 30th fastest production car in the Nurburgring, with the record held by Radical SR8L M (lap time of 6:48.00).
