If you’ve every driven a Chevrolet Camaro with a 1LE package then you know what a difference the option makes. The Camaro ZL1 1LE takes the American pony car to levels that rival many much more expensive cars.

With all the 1LE aerodynamic bits, it has a very purposeful look. The front fins alone make it look like it belongs on the track instead of the road.

If you’re in the market for a new high performance vehicle that won’t break the bank then the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 may be right up your alley. The very quick car gets dangerously close to the Corvette Z06 in specs, but it offer a bit of practicality with its rear seats (although they are only really suitable for younger children).

The 650 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 powered pony car is just a few tenths of a second slower than the new Z06 to 60 mph. Thanks to its lower weight it is also quicker than the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

V8 and V6 Chevy Camaro With 1LE Package

V8 and V6 Chevy Camaro With 1LE Package

Last year Chevrolet let us enjoy a fifth-generation Camaro with the 1LE Package and it made for quite the machine. The car we were given even had the optional Recaro seats (and they are definitely worth the extra cost). The package transformed the already capable SS into a better handling more potent machine ready to take on the track.

This time around all the handling fun is also available for sixth-generation cars with the V6 power plant as well as the V8. The upgraded suspension, brakes and tires really allow you to perform better in the curves. However, it is the cooling improvements that are probably the biggest feature on the track as they help protect your engine when you put it through a grueling day of hard driving.

Chevy Camaro SS 1LE Bloopers

Chevy Camaro SS 1LE Bloopers

Recently, we filmed a review of the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS with the 1LE package. It was a great car and we had a lot of fun to making the video. But sometimes things don’t go quite as planned when you film.

These bloopers can be as simple as loosing your train of thought or killing the car. As it takes a good amount of footage to make a halfway decent film, you are bound to get at least a few unintentional funny moments.
