Chevrolet surprised every person with a brand new Camaro variation a day ahead of the Daytona 500 the other day. No, it had not been the 2018 Camaro Z/28, however it’s rather darn near being one.
The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE was revealed with extra equipment to further reproduce the track pedigree of the sixth-generation Camaro. As well as we claim it’s close to a Z/28 because it makes use of identical suspension modern technology to pull off its dexterity.
2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Exterior and Interior
The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE takes the exact same Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers located on the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28 as well as puts them to excellent usage. Together with the largest front tires ever before fitted to a factory Camaro, 305s at the front as well as 325s at the rear, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE was able to clock a time three secs much faster than the typical Camaro ZL1 at GM’s confirming grounds. The Camaro group is actually outdoing themselves as of late.
Outside modifications are aesthetic and also functional. Up front, it has bigger top and lower grille openings for even more air movement, dive aircrafts for downforce, the last-gen Z28’s “Flow Tie,” a light weight aluminum hood with a carbon fiber insert, and also a satin black cover on the hood and mirrors. Out back, it gets black taillamps, a black bow tie, and a carbon fiber wing to press that back side down at speed.

The ZL1 1LE’s engine bay houses the very same 650 horsepower, 650 lb-ft 6.2-liter LT4 V8 (mated to a six-speed guidebook) as the common ZL1, but the track plan does use a variety of substantial mechanical modifications, especially in the suspension division.
For one, the 1LE adds basic Multimatic DSSV dampers with flexible trip elevation in advance. On top of that there are adjustable camber plates, an adjustable rear sway bar, and also massive Goodyear Eagle F1 tires (305 section up front and also 325 out back). That’s a freaking foot broad! Each back tire!
One of the most crucial updates brought along by the 1LE plan is the substitute of the typical ZL1’s Magnetic Trip shocks with the racing-derived, light-weight Multimatic DSSV (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) dampers on both ends, which was made use of on the previous Camaro Z/28 with amazing results. Chevy also made other tweaks to the suspension including a three-way flexible rear stabilizer bar.
2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Prices
No word on how much the 1LE bundle will certainly contribute to the typical ZL1’s $61,140 base rate, yet the Camaro SS 1LE’s ZL1 package includes $6,500 to the base rate, so it would not be a surprise if the ZL1 1LE price near 70 grand.
