Spied: Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Can’t Hide its Heat Extractor

These photos appear to show the next vehicle in line to get General Motors’s LT4 supercharged V-8 – the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. With the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro slated to hit showrooms later this year, GM is getting to work on the high-performance ZL1 version.

A number of visual clues indicate that this prototype is likely the Camaro ZL1. One big giveaway is the hood’s heat extractor to help cool what is likely GM's big 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V-8. No word on how much power it’ll make for the Camaro ZL1, though it currently produces 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque in the Corvette Z06 and 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque in the Cadillac CTS-V. The current Camaro ZL1 makes 580 hp and 556 lb-ft from its 6.2-liter supercharged V-8.

In addition to its heat extractor, the car also appears to receive a more aggressive body kit. The rocker panels, for example, are wider, while a front splitter and rear spoiler are also spotted beneath the camo. Quad exhaust tips and wheels that appear to be sourced from the current ZL1 are more hints that this is a higher spec Camaro.

With the 2016 Camaro coupe set to launch later this year and the convertible scheduled to arrive in spring 2016, there’s a good chance the Camaro ZL1 will be ready to go by next summer.
