Chevrolet unveils 2018 Camaro ZL1 NASCAR race auto for Cup Series

2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car

When speaking to Automotive News, General Motors vice president of global product development, Mark Reuss, acknowledged that comparable Mustangs and Challengers generally carry a lower base price than the Chevy, and the Camaro's large price jump to upgrade to the V8 engine. Flared wheel arches, slick Goodyear tires and additional aero kit complete the pacakge for the ZL1 Cup Car.

Chevrolet engineers developed the body shape's aerodynamics for racing using computational fluid dynamics analysis and reduced-scale and full-scale wind-tunnel testing.

"Racers have long relied on Camaro to win races and championships in amateur and professional sports auto and drag racing, as well as the NASCAR XFINITY Series", said Jim Campbell, vice president, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.

Chevrolet has unveiled the 2018 Camaro ZL1 race vehicle that the manufacturer will field in the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Starting at Daytona Speedweeks in 2018 NASCAR's Chevy teams will bring a Camaro ZL1 to the track.

The device will feature dual-lens vertical cameras. "We are still awaiting Apple's final decision before shipping parts". The black iPhone 8 replica that was shown has the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S8 .

"The new Camaro ZL1 is a great-looking race auto with a lot of heritage behind it, which will make it a big hit with fans", said Johnson.

Seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson was on hand for the announcement, a driver that has raced for the bow tie since his Cup debut in 2001. The cars became instant legends on the street and dragstrip. The 2018 Camaro ZL1 has a 650-horsepower supercharged engine.

Chevy in 2013 replaced the Impala with the Camaro in the then-Nationwide Series, so the car's arrival in Cup - and subsequent ditching of the Chevy SS - shouldn't be a huge surprise. Chevrolet drivers also have scored a record 30 Cup championships.

The Chevy Camaro has only two Cup Series victories to its credit, both by Tiny Lund in 1971. Representatives from all NASCAR teams who run with Chevrolet were there for the unveiling. Hendrick purchased VIN 001 at a Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction for $250,000, with all proceeds benefiting the United Way.
