Is it advisable to buy a Camaro?

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE manages a lap time of 7:16:04 minutes on the Nordschleife of the N├╝rburgring, but that will officially remain the only road in Europe on which this Camaro model has driven.

According to the US magazine "Motor Trend", the aggressive aerodynamic components of the 1LE package, which make the Camaro a threat to pedestrians, are to blame. In contrast to the standard ZL1, the ZL1 1LE has a body kit with front spoilers, a solid carbon fiber rear wing and so-called "dive planes", which not only look cool and help to provide cooling air and downforce, but - according to EU- Safety rules - also form a potential hazard to pedestrians. Approval should therefore not be possible.

In the US, the Camaro ZL1 1LE can be ordered for $ 69,995. The 1LE package is offered as an extra $ 7,500 for the Camaro ZL1 and comes with a variety of upgrades. Although the 6.2 liter supercharged V8 remains with 650 hp and 880 Newton meters, the 1LE weighs 27 kg less. The package includes a Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve chassis, wider but smaller diameter rims with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires and an adjustable rear stabilizer. All of these extras make the ZL1 1LE almost 14 seconds faster around the ring than the regular Camaro ZL1.
