If you have been expected to see a hardcore variant of the present Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, then you have to take a look at the two videos below, as they are highlighting the newly arrived ZL1 1LE, debuting today at the Daytona International Speedway.
We are looking here at a heavily modified ZL1 model, now wearing a track suit in the shape of the 1LE package, available for both the V6 and the V8 variants. And by the way it handles on the track, it surely is a magnificent model.
Everything is hardcore at the model, starting with the exterior and finishing under the hood. It is extremely imposing and aggressive body style which provides the best aerodynamics for track-performance. The sports car also comes with advanced mechanics, like adjustable racing suspension, lightweight Multimatic DSSV dampers front and rear, adjustable ride height, and so on.
Visually, the model packs carbon fiber composites which reduces weight and increases performance. We are looking here at carbon fiber front fascia with dive planes and air deflectors, lightweight aluminum wheels with high-performance and low-profile Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires, and so on.
As for the car`s extreme performance on the track, Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer at Camaro, has also declared that “The track-focused 1LE package offers progressive levels of performance across the Camaro lineup, from the V6 1LE to the SS 1LE”
“But with the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap – this is the ultimate track-day Camaro,” Oppenheiser also stated.
Under the hood, the model uses the standard ZL1`s 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine, with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, paired to a six-speed manual transmission. But the car`s performance is also achieved due to the new mechanics highlighted below – lightweight Multimatic DSSV dampers on both ends, the new suspension with three-way adjustable rear stabilizer bar and so on.
The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is set to arrive on the market later on this year, with prices to be around prior to its debut in dealerships.
