    Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE review: ratings, specs, photos, price and more - Roadshow

    It's to signify, say Chevrolet engineers, that this is the most extreme interpretation of the sixth-generation pony car. That's quite a good time indeed, being Other aero tweaks include front dive planes and a splitter mounted on the front fascia, sporting larger grille openings to provide better airflow to the car's 11 various coolers. Like all other 1LE models , the hood gets a satin black wrap. The aero work pays off down the long straight between turns one and two at the Area 27 race track in Oliver, British Columbia, which is a mile drive east of Vancouver.

    Getting up to mph isn't difficult with a 6. At high speed, the ZL1 1LE is comfortable and drama free. In keeping with the driver-focused mentality of the 1LE models, the only transmission available is a six-speed manual with the fantastic Active Rev Match program for always-perfect rev matches on downshifts.

    For those who prefer to blip the throttle themselves, Active Rev Match can be turned off with a pull of the paddle behind the steering wheel. Turn-in is sharp, and body roll is minimal, which is saying something for a 3,pound vehicle. Mid-corner grip is plentiful, without much understeer to speak of, even in the really tight complexes where I expect the car to plow forward.

    Holding me tightly behind the suede-wrapped, flat-bottom wheel is a heavily bolstered Recaro seat, which just may be the best seat to come from the factory in a GM sports car. Besides needing to smoothly roll into the throttle out of turns to not upset balance, the car isn't intimating to push hard.

    It's far from sketchy at the limit, and when you do surpass the tires' capabilities, traction progressively falls off, giving ample time to make adjustments to regain grip and continue on. The dampers themselves are hard-mounted to the car and work with springs that are nearly twice as stiff as the base ZL1. Track rats will also enjoy the ability to adjust ride height and front camber for up to 3. Out back, the cradle is solid-mounted to the body and there's a three-way adjustable sway bar.

    The electronic limited-slip differential also gets unique tuning compared to the base ZL1 for better cornering capabilities. The whole package rides on staggered inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires wrapped on forged aluminum wheels. I do wonder how they will hold up over the course of a or minute session when they get really hot, but that discovery will have to come on another day.

    Also staying strong during our short track sessions are the six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo brakes clamping down on steel rotors. Engineers say that performance targets were met without needing to go with a carbon ceramic setup, but I again want to see how well they will cope with stopping the relatively heavy Camaro throughout a longer track stint.

    After three short sessions, my most surprising takeaway about the ZL1 1LE is how non-threatening the car feels to lean on. On a new track with many blind corners and four stories' worth of elevation change, I settled comfortably into the horsepower brute in short order and had a ball bombing around the great 3. It's unlike the other American sports car with north of horsepower that comes to mind, the Dodge Viper, which seems like it wants to kill you out on track.

    As it turns out, an approachable car with equally approachable limits is exactly what Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser wanted to build. To that, I have to say it is mission accomplished for Oppenheiser and his team. How well the ZL1 1LE is on the road remains a mystery, as my drive was only on track. The Camaro development team says there's some road compliance in the car, but solid mounted cradles, struts, stiffer springs and low-profile high-performance tires seem to say otherwise.
