The Chevrolet Camaro has screamed racing since its return in 2009 as a 2010 model, and parent company General Motors is more than happy to indulge fans. GM just announced the availability of the Chevy Camaro 1LE performance packaging, aimed square at the similarly racy Ford Mustang Boss 302.
The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE package includes numerous performance and stylistic changes separating the 1LE-equipped Chevy Camaro coupes from the rest of its brethren. Exterior-wise, the Chevrolet Camaro with 1LE will have a matte-black hood, functional front splitter and rear spoiler, and ten-spoke wheels from the Camaro ZL1. Inside, the Chevy Camaro borrows the ZL1′s steering wheel and shifter. Note the 1LE performance package is only available on 2013 Chevrolet Camaro coupes equipped with six-speed manual transmission.
Under the hood, the Chevy Camaro 1LE package borrows the ZL’s high capacity fuel-pump; wheel bearings, toe links, rear shock mounts; larger front stabilizer bar; higher capacity rear-axle; strut tower brace; and 20-inch tires. The Chevrolet Camaro with 1LE drops the twin-tube dampers normally found on the Chevy Camaro SS and replaces them with monotube rear dampers exclusive to the Camaro 1LE. Also exclusive is the Tremec TR6060-MM6 for the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE.
The 1LE performance package is only available on 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS and 2SS coupe models with, as mentioned above, six-speed manual transmission. GM states pricing information for the Chevy Camaro 1LE package will be released later this year.
