Chevrolet and the Camaro team through the automotive world a curveball when the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE was revealed. The ZL1 1LE will sit atop the Camaro lineup as the most track-capable variant to date and we now know how much it will cost.
Officially titled the ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package (order code A1Z), Chevrolet will charge $7,500 over a base 2017 Camaro ZL1 for a price of $69,995.
The $7,500 premium nets an aggressive aero package, DSSV dampers—borrowed from the fifth-generation Z/28—and the largest tires ever fitted to a factory Camaro, which measure in at 305s at the front and 325s at the rear. With the set of sticky Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires, the car can pull 1.10 g worth of grip. The Camaro ZL1 1LE also weighs 60 pounds less than the regular ZL1 coupe.
The price is a couple thousand dollars higher than Ford’s GT350R, which costs $63,495 in base form, but the content is arguably much greater.
Look for the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE to go on sale this summer, along with the rest of the 2018 Camaro lineup.
