The latest addition to the Camaro line-up - the 1LE - has proven its superiority in front of its competitors by lapping the famous Virginia International Raceway (VIR) “Grand Course” in 2:58.34 – a time previously accomplished only by the upper echelon of performance cars.
This is a very important accomplishment for the 1LE considering that, just like the Nurburgring, the VIR track tests every aspect of a car, including power, brakes, steering, tire grip, and chassis balance.
"The Camaro 1LE combines the best elements of the SS and the ZL1 with a focus on handling," said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. "We optimized every part of the SS for improved track driving, including gear ratios, suspension tuning, and chassis mounts. The result really brings the Camaro SS alive at every turn – whether you’re carving through your favorite backroads or working on lap times on the track."
"Best of all, the Camaro 1LE is $10,000 less than its nearest competitor," Oppenheiser said. "For drivers looking for an affordable way to get on the track, what they save with the 1LE will the cover a lot of days at the track."
