BAY CITY, Mich. Feb. 7, 2012 - In a sea full of European cars, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the only American contender for the 2012 World Performance Car of the Year award. The 2012 World Performance Car finalist list was a collective picking of vehicles by 66 automotive journalists from around the world and slimed down to just 10 cars.

This list will be narrowed down even further this month. Members will have a chance to rate each car based on overall merit, value, safety, environmental responsibility, emotional appeal, and significance. The winner will be announced on Thursday April 21st at the New York International Auto Show.

Here’s what the Chevy Camaro ZL1 is bringing to the table:
· 6.2L Gen IV V-8 Small Super Charged Block
· 580 Horse Power at 6000 RPM
· 556 lbs. of torque at 4200 RPM
· 19 MPG highway
The Chevy ZL-1 will be the first car in North America to come equipped with the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control. The Magneto-Rheological Shocks use magnetorheological fluid for dampening levels up to 1,000 times per second. This makes the system exceptionally responsive and provides better wheel control on rough roads like Ridge Road, Johnson Street, and Trumbull Avenue, and challenging race tracks by dramatically reducing heave, pitch, and roll.
The Camaro has always been a symbol of the classic American muscle car and the latest generation features a design bold enough to land itself a role in the Transformers movie series as seen at the Goodrich Bay City 8 Theater. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 comes with an MSRP starting at $54,095, a much more affordable price tag than the other European contenders.
