ZL585

Hey guys,

So I just saw a ZL585 Camaro SS...I have never heard of these ever, Whats the scoop on the ZL585?

From the 5 mins of research that I've just done I know the 585 stands for 585hp. And all this is done through a company called SLP? I figured I should coming on here would be the best place to go to find out more about this.

Curiosity is killing me any extra info would be awesome!

I have found there are 3 "ZL" dealer options. 1 is a ZL option for the LS's, and 2 for the SS's. It is a power adder option for the cars with a few body mods. I saw one of each at Gordon Chevrolet in Augusta, and they look pretty cool, but they have the same issues as every other SS adding a lot of power.

So you're saying that there is an add-on supercharger option for a base model V6 Camaro from the dealership?

And I thought the ZL1 was rated at 580 hp from the factory...so I guess I'm not getting it.

It's a SLP (Street Legal Performance) car. SLP took a stock SS from GM and installed their parts on the car.
The ZL585 is techically a Roush car now. Roush bought SLP a couple months ago.

A local dealer had one of these back in "10". From what I understand they were a very limited edition car. Had preformance enhancements along with suspension and interior upgades. And if I recall correctly they were actually a ZL 575. The dealer here was asking 80k for the car.
