Fastest, most powerful Camaro ever? - CallawayCarsUSA
Fastest, most powerful Camaro ever?

Let’s start by excluding the COPO Camaro, as they are built strictly for the drag strip with no back seat, airbags or Touch Screen entertainment with Bose surround sound. Tunes are a must have in our supremely fast Camaro. So 2017 marked the introduction of the new Camaro ZL1 with 650 supercharged horsepower under a carbon fiber raised hood.

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 specs show it will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, covering the 1/4 mile in 11.4 seconds @ 127 mph. The ZL1's official top speed is 198 mph. Those numbers beat the previous generation Camaro ZL1 and Z28 by a substantial margin. The 2014 Camaro Z28 won the Motor Trend 2014 Best Driver's Car Award besting among others the BMW M4, the Nissan GTR Nismo and Alfa Romeo 4C so that being said, the Camaro was stout. And the 2012 Camaro ZL1 posted an amazing lap time at the famed Nürburgring in Germany that rivaled that of European exotic sports cars like the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640, and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

Fast Supercharged Camaros

The extremely fast supercharged Camaros filled the 5th generation of the model. Now in the 2018 model year, the Camaro ZL1 stands taller with the new track package called the 1LE Performance Package. Taller, literally in that, the 1LE comes with a huge rear wing similar to that being offered on the new Corvette ZR1. The resulting downforce surely will help with carving new lap records at tracks like the Nurburgring but doesn’t add any extra ponies under the hood. That didn’t happen until Callaway came along. The GM approved specialty manufacture has been doing engine performance packages on GM vehicles for 30 years. Callaway took the powerful ZL1 to their shop in Old Lyme Connecticut and raised the power output from 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to 750 horsepower and 739 lb-ft of torque. That’s an astounding improvement of 100 Horsepower for the Camaro ZL1, all the while retaining the factory bumper to bumper warranty along with the 5 year 60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

The result of Callaway’s installed engine package for the Camaro ZL1 makes it the most powerful Camaro ever offered to the public with a full GM warranty. The Callaway Camaro SC750 easily surpasses the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 526 horsepower and will put the Dodge Hellcat's 707 horsepower to sleep. Of course, you can order a Shelby Super Snake at a reported 750HP, but say goodbye to the factory warranty.

Now for those who might not need the fastest Camaro ever, Callaway does have a little more civilized offering their Camaro SC630, which is the same proprietary GenThree Triple Cooled Supercharger on the Z06 and ZL1 but installed on the naturally aspirated LT1, turning that 455HP engine into a supercharged 630HP grand touring coupe or convertible. And its fitted to the standard Camaro SS chassis rather than the aggressive ZL1 wide stance lower suspension setup. That allows for the Callaway SC630 to be a bit of a "sleeper" Camaro. The engineers at Callaway Cars did give us the fastest Camaro ever, but the powerfully engineered world-class sports car still carries the full GM warranty.

Rightfully so, many blogs, articles on the Callaway Camaro SC750 from gmauthority, torque news and MotorWeek TV have marveled at the added horsepower Callaway installed in the Camaro ZL1.
