The 1LE package has arrived for the supercharged Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, creating a real track weapon and the most potent Camaro yet. Chevrolet are claiming a 3 second a lap faster time over the standard ZL1 Camaro at General Motors 2.9-mile, 18-turn Milford Road Course test track.
Extra performance is achieved through 4 key elements. Aerodynamics, with a carbon fiber rear wing, specific air deflectors and dive planes on the front fascia produce grip-generating downforce to help the car stick harder and drive faster in turns. Adjustable suspension, racing-derived lightweight Multimatic DSSV dampers front and rear for exceptional wheel and vehicle control. Wheels and tires, lightweight forged aluminium wheels are an inch wider but an inch smaller in diameter, with new Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires that deliver max lateral grip of 1.10g. Lighter weight, an approximately 60-pound (27 kg) lower curb weight than a standard ZL1 Coupe.
"With the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap - this is the ultimate track-day Camaro," Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer.
