Meet the Highest-Performance Camaro Ever, the ZL1 1LE!

A full set of track-ready features, and even more – it seems Chevrolet goes above and beyond to create this extreme track beastie. As a result, a track-focused vehicle in the freshly introduced 1LE option package turned into the ultimate highest performance Camaro machine ever. Too much butter won’t spoil the porridge, though.

With the aim of cutting the weight, the package faces the aggressive aerodynamic elements including a rear carbon fiber massive wing and modern air deflectors, along with mint forged 19-inch wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires and adjustable Multimatic DSSV suspension. As a result, the 1LE package shaves overall weight by around 60 pounds. Sharing the engine base with the Corvette Z06, it is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 delivering the same 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque and using a six-speed manual transmission with a revised sixth gear ratio as a standard variant. The new option package is expected to go on sale this summer.
