In the latest episode of its "Ignition,” Motor Trend reviewed Chevrolet’s response to Ford Mustang Boss 302 – the Camaro SS 1LE. The car was tested by pro driver Randy Pobst at Willow Springs International Raceway to see how it tackles the track.

The result was pretty impressive as he names the car "the best handling Camaro ever." Not a surprising result, considering that over the SS version, the 1LE package adds an updated suspension, a set of 20-inch alloy wheels with stickier tires and performance brakes.

The Camaro 1LE is powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine that delivers a total of 426 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an exclusive Tremec TR6060-MM6 six-speed manual transmission.

The model is on sale at a starting price of $37,035.

Watch the video and let us know what you think. Do you agree that the new 1LE indeed the best handling Camaro ever?

this car as all the other Camaros seems very masculine to me.
