Compared to its predecessor, the current car is slightly shorter and narrower, as well as roughly 200 lbs lighter, which is to be appreciated.
Chief among all Camaro specifications is the ZL1, which debuted in 2017 as a more hardcore SS, rocking a new front splitter, carbon fiber inserts, wider fenders, better cooling, plus a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine, which it shared with the Corvette Z06 C7.
In the hands of the Camaro ZL1, this power unit is a true beast, allowing you to hit 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds, before maxing out at 198 mph. As for its quarter-mile time, this is an 11-second car.
Now, the only thing better than the ZL1 is the ZL1 1LE trim, with its Multimatic spool-valve shocks, new front splitter, dive planes, massive carbon fiber rear wing (fixed), wider tires and even less weight than its “lesser” counterpart.
As it so happens, we just found one that’s getting auctioned off, and with roughly a day left in the proceedings, the highest bidder has already put up more than $70,000.
This car is finished in Wild Cherry Tintcoat and comes with a satin black hood wrap, exposed carbon fiber, HID headlights, LED taillights, tinted windows, quad exhaust, black 19-inch forged alloys, Brembo brakes, plus everything else you’d expect from the ZL1 1LE specification.
As for that previously mentioned supercharged V8 engine, it sends 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission with an electronic limited-slip differential. Oh, and the best part? The engine has just 21 miles on the clock. This car is basically brand new.
With Chevrolet planning to end production on the sixth-generation Camaro at the end of 2024, potential buyers need to hurry up and land a ZL1 any way they can, be it a used model like this one or a brand new one – the latter would set you back upwards of $73,695.
