This rare Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is one of only a handful of these late model cars registered in the UK. Originally import brand new in 2017 by Litchfield owner Iain Litchfield as his own car it was spec’d with the full optional upgrades including the Track pack (although never used on track). However a few months into ownership Iain was explaining how good it was to a car collecting friend and test drive was arrange. So impressed was the collector with the ZL1 that an offer to good to turn down was made. With a number of new cars arriving in 2021 the collector has reluctantly put it back up for sale.
The ZL1 comes with 650bhp and 650lbft thanks to its Supercharged 6.2litre V8 which sends it power through the latest 10-speed automatic gearbox with and excellent manual mode. It sounds incredible with the standard valved exhaust. With its superb adaptive dampers and wide profile tyres this is one of the best American chassis ever produced. In the time we owned this car it was not only fun to drive on the B-roads but also proved the best motorway cruiser we have driven. In its comfort mode it offers excellent ride quality and supportive, yet soft, heated and chilled ventilated seats.
Huge six-pot Brembos at the front and four pot at the rear provide massive stopping power.
This is one of our favourite cars and if we didn’t have so many projects on the go at the moment we’d defiantly be adding it back into our collection. If you fancy something different you’ll struggle to find a car that is such a complete all-rounder as the ZL1. With just 1,971 miles on the clock and complete knowledge of all its sensible use it really is a great buy.
