Camaro ZL1 1LE: Maximum Racing Performance

That Is Street Legal For a long time American muscle cars such as the Chevrolet Camaro had the reputation of being fast on straight highways, but only moderately talented on curvy terrain. These times are now history. The latest addition to the showroom of the Munich US car specialists from GeigerCars.de impressively proves that: the Camaro ZL1 1LE.




The regular ZL1 is already very well suited for trips to the racetrack, but with the optional “1LE Track Package” the sporty two-seater definitively mutates into a first-class cornering machine that only reaches its full potential on a circular route.



• 6.2 liters LT4-V8 at 659 HP and 868 Nm maximum torque

• Manual six-speed transmission with specific 1LE gear ratio

• 7:16.04 minutes lap time on the “Nordschleife” of the Nürburgring



The uncompromising athlete is available from GeigerCars.de and is street legal in Germany. Visually, the 1LE differs from the standard ZL1 because of an even more extreme body kit, which is expanded around the nose by a large front splitter, as well as side flaps. The hood is matte black and features an air exhaust made of visible carbon fiber.



 A large rear wing, also made of carbon, soars on the trunk lid and ensures powerful down force. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires were developed exclusively for the ZL1 1LE; their dimensions of 305/30ZR19 on the front and 325/30ZR19 on the rear axle ensure excellent grip in any road condition. They are mounted on forged aluminum rims that are sized 11x19 inches and 12x19 inches, respectively.





The especially light-weight rims provide for a weight reduction of 27 kilograms in the 1LE compared to the regular ZL1. Chevrolet saves additional pounds by using a thinner rear window, modifying the back bench and using new dampers. These are made by Multimatic, can be variably adjusted – as can the strut dampers – and thus allow for a variable ride height at the front axle, among other things.



Powerful propulsion continues to be ensured by the 6.2 liter LT4-V8 with compressor charging, which is also used, for example, in the Corvette Z06. The motor achieves 659 HP and heaves a massive torque of up to 868 Nm onto the crankshaft.



Power transfer is handled here by a manual 6-gear transmission, which in the 1LE features a special gear ratio that has been optimized for use on the track. Excellent deceleration values are guaranteed by the Brembo brake system with red 6-piston calipers on the front and 4-piston calipers on the rear axle.





The benefit of the many optimizations is an outstanding lap time of 7:16.04 minutes on the “Nordschleife” of the Nürburgring. On the 26 kilometer long course the car shaves off 16 seconds from the similarly designed but somewhat weaker Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 R and is also almost eight seconds faster than the standard ZL1.




The interior of this most extreme Camaro is not spartan at all, despite its consistent design for use on race tracks: by default, two-zone automatic air conditioning, a Bose premium sound system, heated and air cooled Recaro sports seats, as well as a steering wheel that is flattened on the bottom and can also be heated, are on board. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is available from GeigerCars.de as a complete vehicle for the price of EUR 104,900 (incl. 19 % sales tax).
