2013 Camaro 1LE Laps Virginia in 2:58:34 [Video]
According to Chevrolet, the car lapped the Virginia International Raceway in about 2 minutes and 58 seconds, which puts it about six seconds behind the mighty ZL1, which is 154 hp stronger, thanks to its supercharged V8.
So even though you might be a Ford guy, there’s no denying that you can go pretty fast for $10,000 less than the Boss 302.
“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.”
