Chevrolet’s track-focused Camaro, which builds upon the multi-trick-pony Camaro ZL1, boasts Mutlimatic DSSV dampers among other goodies to make it a pony car turned track machine. The publication found a lot to love with the car on the track, thanks to these tweaks.
Value, track handling and a sweet 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine all made for big smiles on judges’ faces.
However, the publication named a few compromises that come with track prowess. Foremost, the same DSSV dampers reportedly turn the car into a real bear on regular roads and the steering is weighted for those who hit the gym seven days a week. Automobile also put the ZL1 1LE’s styling in a toss-up category. At the end of the day, however, the styling doesn’t matter when shaving precious seconds off of lap times.
The publication will name its 2018 All-Star bunch on March 10. Stay tuned.
