The 1LE's lap time is more than 13 seconds quicker than the 'basic' ZL1 with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

General Motors has released a Nurburgring video showing the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE slashing the ZL1 automatic's already-impressive benchmark.

The 1LE completed its trip around the famed Nordschleife in only 7:16.04, setting a new Camaro Nurburgring record. The 'basic' ZL1 with a 10-speed automatic gearbox was more than 13 seconds slower.

The 1LE package benefits from adjustable suspension components and unique aerodynamic elements, including front dive planes and a carbon rear wing, and Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires.

"The harder you push the Camaro ZL1 1LE, the more it rewards you on the track," says Camaro ride and handling engineer Bill Wise, the man behind the wheel during the 7:16 lap. "It offers total control, with the confidence that it will deliver lap after lap."

The first units will begin arriving in showrooms this summer with a $69,995 price tag (including freight).
