Unprecedented levels of refinement, track capability and drag-strip performance.
Chevrolet today revealed the 2017 Camaro ZL1 convertible. It offers comparable performance to the coupe model, thanks to the Camaro’s modular and rigid body architecture, which was designed at the outset to support a high-performance convertible. As a result, only a few minor structural differences separate the coupe and convertible models, enabling the coupe’s track-honed chassis and driver control systems to carry over unchanged.
The Camaro ZL1 convertible goes on sale in early 2017.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is poised to challenge the most advanced performance cars in the world in any measure – with unprecedented levels of technology, refinement, track capability and straight-line acceleration. A cohesive suite of performance technologies tailors ZL1’s performance, featuring an updated Magnetic Ride suspension, Performance Traction Management, electronic limited-slip differential, Custom Launch Control and Driver Mode Selector. The ZL1 Convertible’s modular underbody bracing provides the same sharp, nimble handling as the coupe, while its fully automatic top can be raised or lowered with a single button while driving up to 30 mph, or lowered remotely with the keyfob.
The driver-focused interior of the Camaro ZL1 features standard Recaro front seats, along with a sueded flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob. Chevrolet’s Performance Data Recorder is available, and allows drivers to record, share and analyze driving experiences on and off the track.
