2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible has a whole lot of hustle
If hustle is what you're after, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible delivers it in spades.
It packs the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 as the Corvette Z06.
It blasts out 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, otherwise known as "more than enough."
The brakes are impressively large. No carbon ceramics here, just good ol' iron stoppers.
The rear wheels have all that power after it's sent through the a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transition -- your choice which.
One of the ZL1's unique touches is its carbon fiber hood scoop, which buyers can have painted if they so desire.
Standard equipment includes magnetorheological shocks, a mechanical rear differential and some properly aggressive aerodynamics.
The convertible weighs some 200 pounds more than the coupe, thanks largely to its electrically operated soft top.
The 'vert also features additional underbody bracing to make up for the lack of a rigid roof.
The extra heft provides stability on the road, though, giving the car a nearly unflappable feeling.
