Camaro ZL1 Slow Motion Burnouts
Watch the carnage and tire fire in slow motion.
This Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 simply does a monstrous rolling burnout on the street. We don’t have any details on this particular Camaro, but we know that the ZL1 package from that era included the supercharged LSA V8, delivering 580 horsepower and 556lb-ft of torque in stock form. This one sounds a bit louder than stock.
The video begins in the distance, where the driver drops the clutch and gets the rear tires spinning – kicking the back end out as the car begins to creep forward. As it does so, first in normal time, we can hear the whine of the supercharger and the roar of the exhaust as smoke pours from the rear tires, but as the Camaro ZL1 gets closer to the camera, the slow motion action begins.
The slow motion portion of this Camaro ZL1 burnout video includes the point when the car smokes past the camera, giving us an awesome look at how the smoke builds in the wheel wells before being blasted out the back by the forward motion of the car and the roaring exhaust. During this time, we also get slow motion sound, which is a little odd, but as the Camaro races away from the camera, the slow motion ends and we get a final blast of the LSA’s roar.
In the end, this Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has to have laid down several hundred feet of dark, black stripes by doing this wicked burnout while giving us a great look at the movement of the smoke during the action.
