It typical General Motors fashion, the first production unit of a various vehicle is being auctioned off for a great cause. We’ve seen it with Camaros, Corvettes and even Cadillacs. This time, though, it’s the latest creation from the Camaro team: the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.
The first production Camaro ZL1 1LE will cross the block at the 2017 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach outing, branded with lot number 3002. We expect quite a lofty sum for this car.
Chevrolet surprised fans at this year’s Daytona 500 by taking the wraps off of the most capable Camaro of this sixth-generation thus far. The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE does its best Z/28 impression by ditching the Magnetic Ride Control shocks and swapping in dynamic spool-valve dampers, the same setup from the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28. And we all know how that Camaro performed. The Camaro team has also fitted the largest tires ever to a factory Camaro, 305s at the front and 325s at the rear, capable of pulling 1.10 gs of lateral grip.
The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE will cross the block at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 7, 2017, and 100 percent of the selling price will go to benefit the United Way charity.
Make those transfers to your checking account, because Barrett-Jackson is expecting this car’s sale price to perform just as well as its performance specs.
