sup Smurfs it's me card genie in your arms budget blue ok i can give you a car of unlimited power ok i'm a bugatti chiron less than that ok McLaren p1 a little less than that ok zero one but more more more than that's cool I don't know tell me just tell me what what is it is a red eyed
hellcatyeah ok yeah good luck with that. Oh, you're looking at Throttle House. I'm Thomas and I'm James and today we have the
2019Camaro zl1 and the
hellcatred eye the 2019 Camaro zl1 thankfully the zero didn't get the 2019 facelift that has happened to its v8 brethren and here it sits as awesome as ever with 650
horsepowerand torque equal number by the numbers this rear wheel drive supercharged monster laughs at the price of some supercars and can outrun them on the track before you've even had breakfast this thing has 11 heat exchangers that it's one more than a Bugatti Veyron ultimately should be enough to make even the highest
dodgedefy have to shudder sorry I can't hear you over the sound of 800
horsepowerokay that's 797 but still Being 80 more than the standard Hellcat and 147 more than the ZL1, by now I'm sure you've heard of the Dodge. demon the game changing drag car as every
dodgedemon is now talked about dodge took his 2.7 liter supercharger v8 and all and dropped it on this with the Demon 8 Speed Auto and goodies A slight recalibration of the engine and a change in airflow mean it falls short of the devil's numbers, but it's still a wolf in wolf's clothing.
Dodge claims a 10.8-second quarter, and yet this is a more corner-friendly continent, even with bigger brakes, stiffer suspension, and standard. Tri-mode SRT tuned Bilstein shocks at all corners but before we get started be sure to subscribe if you haven't already and hit the bell to get notified as soon as our videos are out and for additional content and behind the scenes follow us on Instagram I'm at the throttle house alright 20 1901 and this is an absolute beast so it's got the 6.2 liter v8 from the zero six so this doesn't get lost and I know the zero sounds good on a normal day but this has a COBOL Escape I can't even smile when I do it because fear is keeping my mouth shut so this is crazy it's 3.5 seconds at 60 miles an hour and this can do a quarter mile in 11 points before you think It hardly takes pedal depressing to make this car lose its composure, but I have an electronic limited-slip diff that helps me put the power down and I can see where the conversation is diverting on my screen. looking at the metrics in front of me. to throw the pressure brake and quickly apply full throttle oh my gosh crazy is the only word you can use to describe the way this thing pulls away ok so its supercharged obviously makes a it came amazing but outside it actually makes a fantastic v8 noise as well it's idle like it's been ripped off though this is the red eyed one which means it's kind of like the wide bodied demon but it doesn't have all the stuff They make it specifically a drag car, it's actually set up a little more on all four corners than you are. i think it would be so i've been driving the surrounding tour mode and the ride is surprisingly smooth as i know you can get a 1 in a pack for this and that makes it so much harder i love people who buy the game at once don't Don't buy one of these so it's a much more livable car and I can say after having driven the four cylinder one for the last week it's smoother but when you want things to get a little rough you can just switch it to manual and you have the paddle shifters, today there will be a topic of how this costs, what it does, we will put it in manual mode and I will change with these paddles that have a little bit of a phallic shape and what I can tell you is that there is essentially no point that you can put your foot all the way in just by you just can't do it because it will only spin the tires in fifth gear it will spin the tires this has a catastrophic amount of power and it sounds crazy it has an air intake open so you can hear the hum of the supercharger and it sounds amazingly good.
I am starting with the engine because it is the endurance PS of this car. It's the reason you buy it. That Hellcat engine, which is like a detuned version of the demon engine just by a bit. its one of the most specialty power plants you can buy today period another thing i have to say is it beats its traction control when you saw me there sawing at the wheel trying to keep it going straight the traction control is on it It just can't possibly stop those wheels it's in the credits it's an amazing engine actually I have a little gauge in here that reads my power in real time so I can keep track of all the cars I'm most powerful in while I accelerate ready that's a rm200 Miata GTI type one and it's probably a good time to slow down.
In fact, it is equipped with the 10-speed automatic transmission, whose shifts are very good. with the manual which is new for 2019 but the 10 speed is great and i guess if you are doing a commute or if you live in the city a more livable if you go by track times its probably the transmissions again and i get twice as much that while they serve me some cold soft air on my ass amazing oh this is a face this is a beast this I mean if it's a Hellcat I don't think 0 1 is a good enough name for this Car, yes visibility is one thing but you get used to it but it's new for 2019 because of visibility instead of a rear view mirror.
I get a rear view screen which is a rear facing camera, beautiful in theory but in practice on a sunny day like this it's not. working in my favor i can see the reflection of the cars behind me on the actual sc reen as well as the actual digital display so it ends up getting confused and it's messing with my depth of perception its the same as trying one of the original virtual reality sets. I don't like it like the rest of the car. well it's actually quite secluded and quite comfortable. I find the ride to be quite smooth, even when you put it on the stiffest setting.
Really cool. I pushed this SRT button down here and I can adjust the power. I can drop it. 500 horsepower if it's raining which I did yesterday the transmission, paddle shifters, traction control suspension and steering I can adjust them independently so I like the track mode steering which actually it makes it pretty heavy and it's pretty straight forward, and there's a decent decent front end. The final feedback isn't amazing but it's ok and the suspension I keep on the street because it's pretty pliable in track mode actually makes it pretty stiff and when you do that the car stays pretty flat.
In the corners it's still a gigantic muscle car but it stays pretty flat in the corners now while this one doesn't have the one in the package it still feels amazingly flat and the handling is wonderful so like the SS wanted to leave, we keep driving. tracking steering feels amazingly precise direct Sorry if you can't hear me over the exhaust it's obscene I've run in sport mode right now so steering is tighter, throttle response quicker and suspension much stiffer Magnetic shock absorbers allow you to drive this car in many different modes. I'm really, really moving forward with this journey.
In fact, I'm very worried that by the end of this review I'll be trying to buy one. the Camaro and Mustang feel smaller, more compact and more sports car than they appear. This one still feels like a big muscle car, which makes it fun. If that's what you're looking for, it does that and honestly I'll put it here. the suspension on the track and we're going for a couple of laps ners right now its pretty good it's impressive how big the car is like it stays pretty flat pretty planted in the corners honestly you could laugh at this car you could hit the track like it wasn't just because of the drag strip it feels buttony enough that it's a handful but it would be a lot of fun but if you took it to the racetrack you'd be able to hit that quarter mile a couple of tenths faster than James said. one that he's in and has a top speed of over 200 miles an hour which is great to be able to say 200 miles an hour in a supercar now it only takes driving one of these things to realize how good the steering is front end feels amazing this is sports car level stuff like this hasn't gone away in the muscle boat car days unless you're in a challenger we'll see what thomas says this feels like a proper sports car i'm under the steering feels direct yeah it communicates feels like an extension of and ourselves in the way sports cars are supposed to be right so yeah I know a lot of you are probably already writing a review or just finished from writing a comment saying this should be a track comparison and i agree with you it should be and i would love to do it unfortunately i cant carry this particular hellcat red eye to the track but if you have one and live a short drive from Toronto let us know and we'll get your car to the track because so much since we want to select these cars from the menu and track them all you see all the editing all the planning is just the two of us, so bear with us, we are doing our best to bring you the best content possible. and yes, we'd love to track test these, so if you know of a way, please help us make it happen. i even want to come close to this performance a jaguar f-typ the sv has 575 horsepower and costs like a hundred and forty grand the only thing i can think of that can dominate in performance is a hellcat and maybe the gt500 if those numbers ever come out right now it's seven hundred plus more in filming time but we'll see and i don't think the interior will let it down that much but i'm going to go talk to thomas about it now well it's quick yeah wait and it looks better.
I agree. it's satin steel fattens a new color for 2019 it's really nice in the flesh it's amazing yes it has some spare wheels the owner put them on I agree with the decision they are amazing they look fantastic yes the regular ones are pretty good - Looking also and then obviously this is the set of one so we get the more aggressive grill yeah this is a missing batch what is this also the gold science i agree it looks cool yeah and then we have this carbon fiber hood this is absolutely fantastic yeah it's this extra it costs extra ok but it's your carbon fiber regardless but they have it painted black and you have to pay extra for it to be exposed so you have to pay extra for them not to paint it yes but there are many places like if you go online you have to pay for the Things are exposed, you know, okay, so this thing looks like hell because it's got like the widebody kit that honestly every Challenger should have because it's everything.
These wheels are much wider. They even have the skinny ones. These are metal. Totally, it's more for turning corners, it also doesn't have the massive air intake that the Demon has, it has to snow hard. I could tell how much better this would look in column 5. ht yes for the air that's my favorite part i think it lights up it's great i also have a front splitter and it's purple is another name for the color yes purple purple purple yes never mind what whatever it's purple looks great and the red eye this is the difference true yes stylistically stylistically that's the only thing it gives you is a red eye like a subtle it's a subtle it's really cool it's a bit it's a little gem there to remind you let's do the interiors let's start with yours okay okay inside the Camaro on the senator quite a bit helps actually a summary is an added option yeah and it's one that you honestly should add because it really brightens this up yeah it's very good always if i can opt for a summary yes i will yes you haven't seen this in a while we've been driving a lot of manuals lately yes no this is tennspeed's waltz it's all Alcantara which it's really nice, yeah , the seats are Quarry for cards, this part is her. e yeah no i love it honestly yeah stupid screen that's amazing these cantons by the way I've had a week with the camera now on the force and oh yeah I know it's very very strange, I really don't know why they did it. but this is pretty intuitive right i like how it has the apps ok thats ok makes sense makes sense i keep using the call game anyway exactly ok and it has the big screen in the center that you cant access the low low Camaros will tells all the information you need to know, yes, all of that because this isa zero one yeah we get vented and heated Recaros and they keep the whole one in them in a nice little plate that's not as cool as the fact that it cools your body is important yeah nothing more nothing less than it's a Camaro it's actually decently roomy visibility is funny but you get used to it honestly all they do is limit that yeah reduce that and then you would have a lot more visibility but i can see the carbon fiber hood from here and the back seats are usable if you don't know two four eight no yes actually headroom isn't that bad as my girlfriend good fair she's 5 foot something something yes little people and if you don't mind legs it has back support sorry so It doesn't have a back seat and obviously we won't dwell on that but it's absolutely ridiculous it's even more difficult with a broken wrist ok challenging yeah ok at this point we usually both show you the inside of the other car , but one of n our mics but switch it up so here's what you need to know the red eye interior is nice but no better than the zl1 it's a really cool gauge cluster that gives you useful information about the car and this is also where you can see its abysmal fuel economy it also has a really cool steering wheel that feels good with an illuminated SRT badge these extra buttons don't make it feel that premium though this one has a laguna 2000 leather $195er package so some of the amenities are they feel pretty good and the seats are actually very comfortable the seating positions are a bit high although i found the infotainment easy to use and fairly quick to respond but more importantly where you control the excessive red eye performance, so that makes it great overall it's a pretty nice place to be, got the interior of a $117,000 canadian car?
Trick question never mind 797 horsepower oh ok yeah it has the same personality as in a1 when you put your foot down. both cars are epitomized by their engines and thomas has left it for me in track mode so this steering is particularly heavy and stiff at the moment which is good i feel precise with it the seating position is much higher and it fills up this is a great car okay yeah said l1 oh my gosh dirt okay so this is as scary as red eye if you're what's like that in fourth gear the home and I kind of lost the rear end Wow, okay, I don't know. qu and there is something to do the tires or not, but I feel more confident putting the power in this than in this edition.
I won, so somehow this is less scary. Bigger, it's actually pretty flat, but you can feel the weight transfer in the car. I'm more concerned about going into a corner with confidence. I'd say ok so I'm in track mode at the moment and the steering is still great at the front end. the grip is amazing because the chassis of this car is so well engineered this platform is a big win for Chevy and it keeps beating me time and time again ok so this is bigger it has a bigger engine it's more powerful, it is more spacious inside in the cabin, the trunk is larger, this has more utility, but at the same time, as if you did not take it to a race track, put it this way, a normal sustained jack costs like 78 thousand, the sticker price for this is one hundred and seventeen thousand.
Canadian which puts you in the territory of some seriously amazing cars and since that Camaro is 78 grand as is it's an absolute no brainer if you're not hitting the race track and want to drive a sports car to me it's a zero one no brainer it's this this it's a It's a beast of a car it's genuine it's very very special they both really are there aren't that many cars today that a normal human can afford to really generate that much power, excitement, fear on a daily basis these cars can be the latest generations of what they are and its really very special if you can afford to buy any of these do it if i were to buy one i would buy this one in l1 its more of a sports car with all the added fear and excitement that you get from the hellcat the whining supercharge this is great you know given everything i said if you want something really special and want to win every horsepower conversation e n the bar is special and it's big and it's purple buying this car is me like going to amazon and drunk buying one of those things that sprays your butt so you don't have a wipe in the morning you wake up and come you like what i do but you never come back so there we have it zero one is a shocking amount of performance in an incredibly well priced package and those who are or have been able to secure an assignment are in for a surprise while the expensive price tag has been touched with the same special fairy dust and you just need to put your foot down on the accelerator to experience happy thoughts and fly even in officer mode okay I'll be good in 500 horsepower mode most importantly both cars generate an adrenaline rush that's just code for a grin from ear to ear thanks for watching
