As expected, Chevy is preparing a big party for the 2011 SEMA event, and one of the pathways that the company will use to keep us enterntained will be to return to its roots.
For example, we’ll receive the Camaro 1LE Concept - as some of our readers may recall, the 1LE option code was brought to the world by the Camaro’s third generation and then taken even further in the fourth generation as a racing pack for the road.

We are talking about a concept, but the vehicle uses production components borrowed from both the Camaro SS and the upcoming range-topping Camaro ZL1.

Here's what the development has to offer

* Victory Red exterior color, with flat black hood and hash mark extensions
* Satin black splitter, rocker panels, rear spoiler and outside mirrors
* Sport suspension featuring Magnetic Ride Control
* Electric power steering
* Six-speed manual close-ratio transmission
* Lightweight 20x10-inch (front) and 20x11-inch (rear) racing wheels (satin black)
* Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G asymmetrical tires (from the ZL1)
* Brembo® six-piston front calipers, with two-piece front rotors, and four-piston rear calipers (Chevrolet Official Licensed Product)
* Dual exhaust outlets with ZL1-style active exhaust and diffuser
* Shock tower brace
* Chevrolet Accessories red engine cover
* Black leather interior with Light Stone stitching
* Graphite Silver door and instrument panel inserts
* ZL1 shifter with Light Stone stitching
* ZL1 flat-bottom steering wheel
* Chevrolet Accessories pedal kit

The Camaro 1LE concept is all about the track,” said Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer for the Camaro. “It’s an all-out race car package that pays tribute to that special option from the past.
