Chevrolet has announced that it will unveil the 2013 Camaro ZL1 convertible at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. The top-of-the-line ZL1, the most powerful convertible ever produced by GM, is scheduled to go on sale in late 2012.
“The Camaro ZL1 convertible will be one of the most powerful and most capable, convertibles available at any price,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “This is a car that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time you drop the top – or hit the gas.”
Like the coupe, the Camaro ZL1 convertible gets its power from a 580-horsepower version of Chevy’s supercharged 6.2L “LSA” engine. The convertible features the same advanced powertrain and chassis technologies that enabled a Camaro ZL1 coupe to lap the 13-mile-long Nürburgring’s Nordschleife race track in 7:41.27 minutes.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but the Camaro ZL1 is expected to be priced between $50,000 and $60,000.
