    • In case you doubted, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE is a mind blowing performance car

      Ok, let's do a quick refresher to frame this. Chevrolet offers the 1LE option package for the Camaro ZL1. This comes with revised aerodynamics for more downforce, revised suspension, 60 pounds less weight, and new wheels with sticker and wider rubber.


      How big of a difference does it make? Well, the ZL1 1LE laps the Nurburgring in 7:16.04. Without the 1LE package, it takes 7:29.6. That is quite the difference.

      Yes, the car is manual only but that is fine. This is a nod to enthusiasts and Chevy showing they care and take you into account. This car is all about drive interaction and roadcourse performance.

      MotorTrend tested the 2018 ZL1 1LE out and their results are impressive. They love the car. How can you not?

      Look at what it does at Laguna Seca. For $73k nothing is anywhere near the Camaro ZL1. It punches way, way above its weight:


      Cars on that list are double and triple the price. Plus many are lighter and better balanced. Whatever Chevy is doing seems like magic.

      Not everyone can have a McLaren. You can get McLaren 570S roadcourse performance for a fraction of the cost in a Camaro though. That deserves tremendous praise from automotive enthusiasts.
