Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible Debuted Silently At New York Auto Show
|   Monday, April 18, 2016
The grand premiere from Chevrolet at the Auto Show in New York has been the new Camaro ZL1, but the American manufacturer has prepared another surprise for its fans. Besides the Camaro ZL1 coupe its convertible version was unveiled - Camaro ZL1 Convertible!

Probably you are going to ask yourself how much does the Camaro ZL1 Convertible resemble its Coupe brother?
The two are so similar that the people at Chevrolet did not make a great uproar with the occasion of the official launch held at the Auto Show in New York.
However, there are a few differences, so they are worthy of presenting, for no other reason than we are talking about a super car which attracts many enthusiasts.
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible offers comparable performance with the coupe model due to the modular and rigid bodywork architecture that was designed from the beginning to support the high-performance for the convertible model. As a result, there are only minor structure differences that separate the coupe version from the convertible model.

Similar to the coupe version, the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible features an aggressive aerodynamic kit, 20-inchs wheels, and hides a huge V8 engine with a displacement of 6.2 liters, which develops 640 hp and torque of 868 Nm by using a mechanical compressor.
The engine may be coupled to the manual gearbox with 6 speeds or to the new 10-speed automatic gearbox with Active Rev system, which we will find on eight Chevrolet models in 2018.

This gearbox allows the engine to remain at optimum rpm levels during acceleration and allows a lightning response to changes in speed. To ensure that the ZL1 can handle as well as possible, Chevrolet's technicians have equipped their new car with a number of other interesting features.

Thus, the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible is equipped with a Brembo brake system with brake discs measuring 390 mm on the front axle, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tire performance, the Magnetic Ride suspension, electronically limited slip differential, exhaust system with valve, which changes the intensity of the engine's sound, Performance Traction Management system, Driver Mode Selector system and Launch Control function.

Specialists from Chevrolet promise that the convertible's performance will be comparable with those of the coupe. Certainly the pleasure of listening to the huge V8 engine under the hood will be even greater with the roof folded. A true delight for soundtrack lovers, especially fans of V8 engines.

The bonnet is now flaring, has carbon fiber inserts and holds a heat extractor that pulls hot air from the engine compartment. The Chevrolet representatives say that the ZL1 coupe does not require other optional packages to be prepared for racing the car already has some standard features, such as 11 of heat exchangers. This is probably true for the convertible version too.

In terms of design, the convertible version receives many visual cues off the coupe, including a large grid that appears ready to swallow other cars. The Camaro ZL1 Convertible form is extremely functional and has been tested more than 100 hours in a testing tunnel to achieve unmatched aerodynamics.
In conclusion, external elements play an important role in overall managing the airflow and aerodynamics of the car.
