2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE: Upgrades made to crush the track
As a refresher: The 2018 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE is a track-focused upgrade package to the supercharged halo model General Motors debuted last year. The supercharged 6.2-liter V8 making 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque remains unchanged, but only comes connected to a six-speed manual gearbox in the 1LE. There's a new carbon fiver spoiler out back, as well as new dive planes and air defectors, all added in the name of optimizing the Camros' aerodynamic profile for track work.
The ZL1 1LE uses the latest version of the Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers seen in the outgoing Camaro Z/28 and the new Chevy Colorado ZR2. Below them lie new lightweight wheels wearing specially-developed Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires that combine to offer about 10 percent more surface area than the regular ZL1's rubber.
