Previously, we heard about the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and SC750 Camaro ZL1 from MotorWeek host John Davis. This around, we’ll hear about the publication’s trip to Roebling Road Raceway with the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE.
As you probably know, the Camaro ZL1 1LE is a track-focused machine, and is said to be the most capable street-legal Camaro ever produced. It features a slew of aerodynamic enhancements, including the love-it-or-hate-it dive-planes on the front fascia and carbon fiber spoiler on the rear deck-lid.
More importantly, the ZL1 1LE has the guts to back up its appearance, thanks to the supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 under its hood making 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with 1LE-specific top gear ratios, DSSV dampers, adjustable camber plates and an adjustable rear sway bar, 60-pound weight savings over the “standard” ZL1, and unique Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires.
Hit play to hear more about what makes the ZL1 1LE, which earned a spot on the Hagerty Future Collector Car List, truly special.
