2012 Chevy Camaro Z/28 turning heads

The Camaro and Mustang duel will go to a new level once the Camaro Z/28 is released. The new Camaro offering is reportedly going to boast a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 pumping no less than 556 horsepower which will put in within reach of the Mustang Shelby GT500.

Last September we told you a resurrected Camaro Z/28, with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 making at least 556 horsepower, was about a year out, and as the months are fast running out, it shouldn’t be long before the official debut. It should be a very good auto show season.
