Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to be next year's NASCAR Cup vehicle

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to be next year's NASCAR Cup vehicle

Chevrolet has also run a Camaro in the Xfinity Series since 2013.

Seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson - driver of the #48 Lowe's Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports - joined Mark Reuss, executive vice president of GM Global Product Development, to reveal the new race auto at Chevrolet's headquarters in Detroit.

As the Holden Commodore faces curtain call, Chevy's NASCAR bosses haven't had to look far to find its replacement for the Chevrolet SS. This while the Mustang starts $26,085 and the Challenger begins at $28,090, both powered by V6s. However, it is not the lone Camaro in NASCAR's top three series.

The bow-tie brigade is gearing up for the 2018 Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series.

While the street version of the Camaro ZL1 uses a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that makes 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, the race auto will be subject to NASCAR rules, which stipulate a naturally aspirated engine and no more than 358 cubic inches.

The short sellers will then buy the stock back at a much lower price and replace the borrowed shares, pocketing the difference. The Alpine Associates Management Inc holds 9.76M shares with $80.39 million value, up from 8.62M last quarter.

The ZL1 was originally an all aluminum racing engine in the 1960's.

On Thursday, Chevrolet unveiled their new Camaro ZL1 stock vehicle for next season. Using COPO number 9560, 22 cars were built with automatic transmissions and 47 with 4-speeds. Those COPO F-body Camaros became legends on the street and drag strip and today are sought-after by collectors.

More than 40 years later, Chevrolet reintroduced the ZL1 as the ultimate performance Camaro, developed to offer track-capable performance straight off the showroom floor.

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. Representatives from all NASCAR teams who run with Chevrolet were there for the unveiling. In the time span, the Chevy SS has been to victory lane 70 times. Hendrick purchased VIN 001 at a Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction for $250,000, with all proceeds benefiting the United Way.
