  • 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car

A new era in Chevrolet motorsports starts today with the introduction of the Camaro ZL1 as the new race auto for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

"I think we've got opportunities at the very low end of the Camaro range and some remix of some of the V-8 options on it so we don't force people to buy all the options with a V-8, just to get a V-8", General Motors product boss Mark Reuss told Automotive News at the launch of the new NASCAR Camaro ZL1. "We look forward to racing the Camaro ZL1 in the premier Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series".

Chevrolet engineers employed an array of tools, including computational fluid dynamics analysis and reduced-scale and full-scale wind-tunnel testing, to optimize aerodynamic performance while maintaining the ZL1's design character. Making its official debut to the motoring public is the all-new Camaro ZL1 Cup Car. Starting at Daytona Speedweeks in 2018 NASCAR's Chevy teams will bring a Camaro ZL1 to the track. The cars became instant legends on the street and dragstrip. The street version of the Camaro uses a unibody structure.

"Chevrolet, Camaro and ZL1 are all synonymous with winning, both on and off the track", said Reuss.

He also announced that he would announce his future plan of action and asked his supporters to wait for it. He has left for Gujranwala and will cross small towns of Wairabad, Gakhar Mandi etc.


Perhaps with this change, we will also see Ford switch to the Mustang. Over 40 years after the ZL1 returns to the sales floor with track ready performance.

Seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson was on hand for the announcement, a driver that has raced for the bow tie since his Cup debut in 2001. The 2018 Camaro ZL1 has a 650-horsepower supercharged engine.

The new Camaro ZL1 race vehicle will be tasked to build upon the winning legacy of the current Chevrolet SS sedan, which has scored 70 Cup Series wins to-date and contributed to Chevrolet earning a record 39 NASCAR manufacturer titles _ including 13 consecutive from 2003-2015. The Camaro will replace the current racer that's styled based on the SS, which will go out of production after 2017.
