The standard Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 set a Nürburgring record, but the brand wanted to kick it up a notch with the new Camaro ZL1 1LE. When equipped with the 1LE package, the ZL1 gets all kinds of performance upgrades that make it a natural on the racetrack. In June, Chevy teased enthusiasts with a short video of the track, hinting that that Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE had set a new Nürburgring lap record. A few days later, the brand followed it up with a video confirming that, yes, the ZL1 1LE did just that.
Chevrolet unveiled a video of the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE taking the ‘Ring by storm, tearing up the track and eventually finishing with a new record lap time of 7 minutes and 16.04 seconds. That’s over 13 seconds faster than its predecessor! The lightweight model with the 1LE package includes tweaks to its design to make it more aerodynamic as well as a 650-hp V8 engine mated to a six-speed manual – a contrast to the Camaro ZL1’s ten-speed automatic.
