Newly introduced Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has just become the quickest Camaro to lap the Nurburgring track.
Supercharged coupe equipped with the revised 1LE package lapped the German track in seven minutes and 16.04 seconds, which makes it 13.56 ticks quicker than the Camaro ZL1 that the company tested in 2016. This record was achieved using a suspension setup adjusted for optimal track performance and running on the production Goodyear tires, so there’s no trickery involved. At least none that stands out.
As a brief reminder, the 1LE package adds a range of performance-enhancing features, including Multimatic DSSV (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) front and rear dampers, special front dive planes, carbon-fiber rear wing, and exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires. The 1LE is rated at the same 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque as the standard Camaro ZL1. The 1LE package adds $7,500 to the ZL1’s sticker, increasing the final price to $69,995 before options.
This makes Camaro ZL1 faster than Ferrari 488 GTB. Watch the video below.
