When we inquired with Chevrolet officials as to what sort of updates we could expect in the 2014 Camaro ZL1, the answers gave us the impression that the 580-horsepower supercar would see the styling cues reflective of the new Z/28 and the rest of the 2014 Camaro lineup. But as new spy photos show, found on Camaro5, it appears that the 2014 Camaro ZL1 will only receive a visual update to the design of the rear fascia.
Maintaining the look of the current 2013 model up front has a lot to do with the aerodynamic and cooling properties of the ZL1. It could have been that the new front clip just didn’t provide the proper amount of cooling and/or downforce the ZL1 needs that allowed it to lap the Nürburgring in a blistering seven minutes and 41 seconds.
None of which is to say the ZL1 looks any worse for keeping the existing front end treatment, since we liked things just as they are, anyways.
Also spotted next to the ZL1 was the 2014 Camaro SS 1LE, which receives both front and rear fascia makeovers. And unlike the 2013 model we just reviewed, the 2014 Camaro 1LE is graced with a front hood extractor, which should help with downforce as well as airflow of the 430-horsepower track athlete.
