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.

Hendrick Motorsports was chosen to assemble the team and build the actual Garage 56 Camaro ZL1 race car that will see a driver lineup made up of Jimmie Johnson (7-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion), Jenson Button (2009 Formula 1 World Champion), and Mike Rockenfeller (a multiple Le Mans winner). Goodyear, the official tyre of NASCAR is supplying the Goodyear Eagle tyres for the car, and Chevrolet’s Motorsports Competition Engineering team was chosen to optimize the car. The street version matches the racecar with its Riptide Blue exterior paint and includes a graphics package that mimics that of the actual Garage 56 racecar. The limited-edition street version features that monstrous 6.2-litre supercharged V8 powerplant that is rated to produce a rather ludicrous 485 kW (650 hp) of power with an equally impressive 884 Nm of torque. So far we don’t expect the car to have any power upgrades, and the pricing also hasn’t been released as yet. We reckon, in our expert opinion, that Chevrolet is waiting to set the pricing just after this year’s Le Mans running, which in turn will determine if the pricing is palatable or if it’s way higher thanks to a great performance on track. Either way, this thing looks absolutely amazing!

Take a look at the YouTube video showing this amazing American entry to this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans race under the Garage 56 banner. Here you get to see and hear the car in action, and that should give you enough information to figure out if it's a good idea to put money on the car's class placing at the upcoming race that looks set to be the best one yet: NASCAR Garage 56 on Track Footage at Le Mans + More! | The SuperSquad
