Chevrolet Preps ZL1, Droptop Camaros for SEMA
A couple of years ago, we tried to tally the number of Camaros we saw at the SEMA show. We lost interest after counting 37 in one day. This year, Chevy and everyone else will have access to the Camaro convertible (not to mention a few ZL1 coupes), so we’re expecting Camaro attendance to at least double. GM is of course doing its part, evidenced by the cars below.
Chevrolet Camaro 1LE Track Pack Concept
Option code 1LE was born in the ’80s as a road-racing prep package. It stripped the unnecessary accessories, like a radio and A/C, and added different gearing, bigger brakes, and, in fourth-gen cars, swapped the stock dampers for Konis. This Camaro pulls a lot of the same tricks while also borrowing parts from the new ZL1. Lightweight 20-inch wheels are wrapped in the same Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar tires, the car has a close-ratio six-speed manual and the ZL1’s shifter, and it uses upgraded Brembo brakes and magnetorheological shocks. Other ZL1 parts: rear spoiler, rockers, steering wheel, front splitter, dual exhaust, and rear diffuser. This is the rare SEMA car with a purpose, plus it looks pretty sweet.
