Chevrolet Camaro 1LE

The 1LE performance package can now be had for the latest-generation Chevrolet Camaro, even with the less powerful yet still potent V6 motor. The LT variant’s 1LE pack, for instance, adds niceties like lightweight 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, Brembo brakes, a mechanical limited-slip differential, a dual-mode exhaust system, a satin-black hood and front splitter, a three-piece rear spoiler, a specially designed gas cap taken from the Camaro SS, and a custom grille specifically designed for this model.

The cabin features a suede steering wheel and optional Recaro seats. All these complement the 3.6-liter V6 motor mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. And the driver can test how fast all that track-ready gear is with the included data recorder.

Those who find the V6’s 335hp too sedate for their driving can go for the SS variant's higher-spec 455hp 6.2-liter V8 that is also paired with a six-speed self-shifter. Unlike the 1LE LT’s FE3 suspension, however, this one gets the Corvette’s Magnetic Ride Control for the utmost in grip and handling.

More goodies come in the form of an exclusive electronic limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers, a track cooling package for the powertrain, and a satin black hood and satin graphite front airdam. Taking care of traction are specially designed 20-inch alloy wheels with 285/30 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires in front, and 305/30 tires out back. Just like its LT sibling, the SS gets a suede tiller, Recaro bucket seats, and the data recorder.

First seen in 1988, the 1LE has been transforming Camaros into track-ready performance machines that can be used every day.
