2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE Is Rival To 707 Horsepower Hellcat
The majority of the focus has been with the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and this has been the first vehicle to offer up the 10 speed automatic transmission. This is despite the fact that the gearbox option hasn’t been made available until next year.
The Chevrolet Camaro V6 1LE isn’t just an afterthought, the vehicle did manage to break the lap record for the Lightning Lap of Car and Driver. This meant that the vehicle managed to beat the prior record holder, which was the Ford Mustang 2011.
The vehicles that come under the classification have a price tag of no more than $34, 999. This is the first chance that the 1LE equipped Toyota Camry has had to get into the fray, when you take into account that the Camaro SS 1LE has a price tag that is out of the price range.
The Chevrolet Camaro V6 1LE came in at 3 minutes 4 seconds and this meant that it beat the prior record holder by quite a lot. The Mustang on the other hand managed a lap of 3 minutes 12.5 seconds and the vehicle tied with the 2006 Nissan 350Z Track.
What does happen to be even stranger is the fact that the Chevrolet Camaro time was just 0.5 seconds behind the time that the Dodge Challenger Hellcat managed. This is notable as this vehicle costs twice that of the V6 1LE.
