It’s now been revealed that one of the goodies that the 2017 Camaro ZL1 will come with is its line lock feature!
According to Autoblog, the function is activated through the launch control menu when the car is in Track mode and the transmission is in Drive or first gear. Once the line is activated in lock in the instrument cluster screen, the driver presses 80 pounds of pressure on the brake pedal. A status bar in the multifunction screen show a readout up to 100 percent. Then, mash the gas and light up the tires. The feature is intended for prepping for a drag strip run. But wait, there’s more. Press both center buttons on the steering wheel pads – cruise control on the left and select on the right – and a rolling burnout kicks in. Line lock works for 15 seconds before cutting throttle.
