2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE: Hottest Camaro Of All Time!

Jun 27, 2017 05:00 AM EDT | Paul Urban

Well, there is definitely a good reason why the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is considered as the hottest Camaro of all time! By hottest, it literally means the hottest! It was ablaze, with all its power as it outperformed all Corvettes and Ferraris recently at Nurburgring.

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has clinched the top spot at The 'Ring for being faster than the Ferrari and all the Corvettes too. The ZL1 1LE finished with a time of 7:16:04 as it was driven by a Chevrolet test driver. This recent record made it the 14th fastest production car, which graced the 12.9-mile circuit.

Ferrari does shy away from such record and all, however, a German publication has released how its 488 GTB performed doing the same track as the ZL1 1LE. According to such German publication, the Ferrari 488 GTB finished with 7:21. The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 managed to have a time of 7:19:63 that is not far from the records set by Porsche 911 GT3 and Dodge Viper ACR. However, it is not as fast as the Chevrolet ZL1 1LE.

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is easily considered the hottest Camaro because of its supercharged V-8 engine, which is capable of producing 650-horsepower. It does have adjustable suspension with racing-style spool-valve dampers.

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has been carefully designed with performance-first philosophy. Its three-piece mounted blade-style spoiler is an absolute standard. It is also combined with a bigger front splitter, which is responsible for increased downforce for the track. This makes the 1LE more of a track car than a muscle car altogether.

RECARO performance seats do come as standard in the ZL1 1LE, which keeps the driver in place and in position even at high speed. Even better, the ZL 1 LE is lightweight for only weighing 3,500 pounds which translates to total control and overall absolutely impressive performance.

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is a force to reckon with. Its performance is unbridled and unparalleled. Having such record at the Ring is almost as expected.

For some, however, this may still come as a surprise as most have the notion that the Ferraris are the worthiest and the fastest. At this point, one might need to think again. The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE did exactly what most did not expect.
