2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible Manual
An All-Arounder, on the Track and around Town The manual, however, is the car we took to the test track. The 0-to-60-mph sprint was dispatched in 4.4 seconds, 0.4 second behind our best time in a ZL1 coupe. The massive, 20-inch 285/35 front and 305/35 rear tires were good for 0.97 g of skidpad grip, again just behind the coupe’s number. A set of 14.6-inch two-piece rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers handle braking in front; four-pot calipers squeeze 14.4-inch one-piece rotors in the rear. We recorded an impressive 150-foot stop from 70 mph. A decade ago, cars capable of posting numbers this striking were generally single-minded, temperamental beasts that would bite back with the slightest provocation. Standard Performance Traction Management plays a big role in maintaining the ZL1’s affable nature by integrating the various electronic systems—the fancy suspension; launch, traction, and electronic stability controls—into a well-rounded suite of safety and performance enhancers. Even the most ham-fisted drivers will have a hard time embarrassing themselves when exiting the drive-through at Hardee’s.
