The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Will Cost $70,000


With a base price slightly over $60,000, the 650-hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a bargain in the performance-car world. Only Dodge's Hellcat twins offer similar power for the money, but the Camaro is a much nicer handling car. Chevy just announced today that the track-focused 1LE package for the 2018 Camaro ZL1 will cost $7500, bringing the total price up to $69,995.

A $70,000 Camaro might sound ridiculous at first, but actually, it's a good deal for the hardware you get. Opting for the 1LE package swaps out the regular ZL1's magnetic dampers for Mutlimatic's genius spool-valve units, which are being used to devastating effect in the new Colorado ZR2. Elsewhere, you'll find these shocks in the old Camaro Z/28, the new Ford GT, and on F1 cars.

These dampers might be worth the $7500 alone, but the ZL1 1LE also gets downforce-generating aerodynamic bits, including a new front splitter, dive planes, and a giant rear wing. The ZL1 1LE's weight is also reduced by 60 pounds, thanks to a fixed rear seat and a thinner rear window. Completing the package is a new set of forged alloy wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires larger than those in the stock ZL1. Read more about the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro...
