Lingenfelter Camaro ZL1 tops 200 mph

From AB
DECATUR, Ind. - Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) has demonstrated their high-horsepower expertise once again, becoming the
first to exceed 200 mph in a new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
Driven by HOT ROD magazine Editor-in-Chief David Freiburger, the Lingenfelter-tuned ZL1 Camaro hit 202.67 mph at the Continental Tire North America, Inc. Uvalde Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas on April 30, 2012.
"The Lingenfelter crew couldn't be more excited to make history as the first 2012 ZL1 Camaro to exceed 200 mph, and to celebrate this victory on the heels of becoming the first company to run a ZL1 in the 10s," said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. "We are very proud to have David drive our car and to share in this accomplishment with HOT ROD magazine, an icon in the world of speed and high-performance vehicles."
On April 18 - just two weeks after taking ownership of one of the first production ZL1 Camaros available to the public - Lingenfelter powered their ZL1 Camaro to its first record run in the 10s, making an impressive 10.79 quarter-mile pass at 134.36 mph at Muncie Dragway in Albany, Ind.
LPE engineers used their expertise to modify the ZL1 Camaro with a Lingenfelter GT9 camshaft; CNC ported cylinder heads; an increased supercharger speed thanks to a 2.3 top pulley and a 5% overdriven bottom pulley; a custom air intake with LPE's race mesh filter; Continental ExtremeContact(tm) DW tires and production ZL1 wheels. The LPE-tuned ZL1 makes 720 HP and 650 lbs. ft. of torque at the rear wheels.
Lingenfelter offers enthusiasts three supercharger upgrade packages - producing 630 HP to 700 HP - for the 6.2L ZL1 Camaro engine, delivering substantial improvements over the factory 580 HP and 556 lbs. ft. of torque while maintaining a safe level of boost and supercharger RPM. The LPE ZL1 Camaro Supercharger System Upgrade Packages are available for purchase and installation by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. View the attachments for this post at: 5761590#155761590
