This car represented the zenith of Chevy's muscle cars. It's one of the most powerful Camaros ever, and also the most exclusive, with a production numbering just 69. In the 1960s Chevrolet supported the Automotive Manufacturers Association's ban by using over 400ci (6.9-liter) engines only in Corvettes or its full-size cars. However, one of Chevrolet's employees, Vince Piggins, found a loophole in the ban and created the ZL1. The car started as an SS396 model, with F41 uprated suspension, front discs, a cowl induction hood and exclusive engine unlike anything else Chevrolet had. It was an all-aluminium 427ci (7.2-liter) V8 which weighed the same as a small-block, hence the handling remained very good. However, the awesome power meant the car could run 11-second quarter-miles with racing tyres. Collectors have paid anything from $150,000 to $250,000 for a ZL1.
