The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE and 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 are a monster and when you combine both you get this monster of a beast. Let’s see the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.
If this vehicle looks familiar, that’s since we’ve seen it few times testing, however it was determined improperly as the sixth-generation Camaro Z/28. Nope, Chevrolet pulled a fast one.
The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE was unveiled at Daytona International Speedway a day prior to the Daytona 500. Fitting landscapes undoubtedly. Visually, a huge rear wing exists at the back, while large dive planes, a larger front splitter and grille opening assistance feed more air into the engine. It looks effectively enormous.
When it comes to technical specifications, the story isn’t about power. It’s not about the transmission, either. The Camaro ZL1 1LE utilizes the exact same 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine discovered in the “regular” ZL1. And it’s mated specifically to a six-speed manual, not the brand-new ten-speed automatic.
The story remains in the suspension, due to the fact that Camaro engineers have dumped the Magnetic Ride shocks and replaced the system with Multimatic spool-valve dampers. If these sound familiar, that’s since they are straight from the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28, which made excellent use of them on the track. Small suspension tweaks also assist stiffen the ride to a higher level.
The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE likewise includes the biggest tires ever adjusted to a factory Camaro, clocking in at 305s at the front and 325s at the rear. These Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires must have no problems putting power down and will pull 1.10 g of lateral grip. When the power has to come to a stop, six-piston Brembo brakes exist up front and four pistons are at the back.
Talking about speed, Chevrolet states it set a time three seconds quicker than the already bonkers Camaro ZL1 at the GM proving premises.
