2012 ZL1 Convertible will probably be one of the most powerful droptops available at any price. It features supercharged 6.2 liter LSA engine which develops 580 HP – more than a few European exotics and even 2011 Shelby GT500 [550HP].
That much of power requires improved power-train and chassis in order to perform smoothly. Naturally, this muscle car will feature them. Actually, ZL1 was designed for both coupe and convertible bodies from the first development day – 4 strategic reinforcements were made to increase the already stiff body structure to extinguish the hood and steering wheel movement. Wise choice, Chevy.
Standard 2012 ZL1 droptop will also feature the performance traction management with Magnetic Ride Control, traction control, electronic stability first seen in the Corvette ZR1.
