When we see an automaker base a road-going special edition on a new racecar, we get all excited and stuff. It’s no difference in this case with this stunning new limited edition 2024 Camaro ZL1 Garage 56. This racecar for the road comes as we see a NASCAR-derived Camaro ZL1 enter the iconic endurance race under the Garage 56 team banner, which easily explains the name. Also using the name, this numbered car is quite limited, with just 56 models being commissioned for production. This special edition car is the perfect tribute to the monumental effort to get a NASCAR Cup Camaro ZL1 ready to compete on a winding circuit during a long-distance endurance race, of which Le Mans is undoubtedly one of the toughest. The Garage 56 project was a collaborative effort involving key players from the world of NASCAR that includes Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet, Goodyear, and IMSA. The collaboration combines the strength of the most successful team, manufacturer, and tyre in NASCAR’s colourful 75-year history. “Even though Chevrolet has been racing since 1911, we’ve never done anything quite like Garage 56,” says Mark Reuss, President of General Motors. The Garage 56 project is the brainchild of NASCAR Chairman and CEO Jim France and the idea was to showcase the NASCAR Next Gen car to a global audience.
