When Chevrolet released the 1LE package for the 2018 Camaro ZL1, there were few fans without their jaws on the floor. It takes the already amazing 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 and adds all the extra handling goodies it needs to be a true track monster. Today, Chevy reveals just how much this will set buyers back.
According to the press release, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 will start from $61,500, but the 1LE package will add an extra $7,500 to the mix, bringing its total price to $69,000 (less $995 destination fee).
So, what do you get for the extra $7,500?
First are aerodynamic updates that include a carbon-fiber rear wing, unique air deflectors and dive planes up front, which all add downforce.
To the chassis, the ZL1 1LE package adds a racing-derived, lightweight Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers, a height-adjustable front suspension, and a three-way adjustable rear stabilizer bar. The wheels are lightweight forged-aluminum units that cut 3.3 pounds per corner and come wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar rubber with 10% more contact with the road.
On top of the chassis and aero upgrades, the 1LE package also drops the ZL1’s weight by 60 pounds. This is courtesy of the aforementioned lighter wheels and dampers, thinner rear glass, and a fixed-back rear seat.
The entire 2018 Camaro lineup will hit showrooms in the summer of 2018 in four trims: LS, LT, SS, and ZL1.
