2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible
Muscle car buffs should know the ZL1 designation for the rare drag racing package for the 1969 Camaro. The modern ZL1 Camaro is fitted with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 580 horsepower, which makes it the most powerful production convertible Chevy has ever produced. But the ZL1 is more than just a straight-line muscle car.
At all four corners are Brembo performance brakes and magnetic shock absorbers, which are filled with a fluid that changes viscosity when an electric current is run through it. The result is a high-power, high-tech Chevy convertible that hugs a corner as well as it barrels down a dragstrip.
