Chevy’s Newest Camaro: Fast Enough To Outrun A Decepticon Invasion

Chevy’s 2012 Camaro gets more horsepower from the V-6 and adds the eagerly anticipated ZL1 version, complete with a 6.2-liter, 550 horsepower V-8. The SS version remains largely unchanged under the hood, but that’s not a bad thing since the Camaro’s normally aspirated 6.2 liter V-8 is still good for 426 horsepower with a manual transmission (or 400 horsepower with the automatic). That’s not quite enough to outrun a Mustang from zero to sixty (sorry, bowtie fans), but it apparently is fast enough to outrun a Decepticon invasion, at least according to Tim Allen. Until Transformers 3 comes out, you can get a feel for the action in the video below.
