The ZL1 1LE comes powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine that continues to pumps out 650hp and 650 lb-ft of torque backed by a six-speed manual transmission featuring Active Rev Match. Brembo brakes, including red calipers with the 1LE logo make sure a driver can control so much power. Other noticeable equipment include dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose premium audio system, heated/ventilated front seats and heated steering wheel.
Chevy claims the new ZL1 1LE was 3 seconds faster than the standard ZL1 Coupe around General Motors’ 2.9-mile, 18-turn Milford Road Course test track, in preliminary testing. The improved track performance has been achieved thanks to four key elements: aerodynamics ( carbon fiber rear wing, specific air deflectors and dive planes on the front fascia), adjustable suspension (racing-derived, lightweight Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers front and rear for exceptional wheel and vehicle control), new, lightweight forged aluminum wheels that are an inch wider but an inch smaller in diameter, front and rear, than standard ZL1 wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires and the lighter weight (approximately 60-pound (27 kg) lower curb weight than a standard ZL1 Coupe).
The new ZL1 1LE will be available on the market this summer, while the price will be known later.
