2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE VIN 001 Sells for Charity - Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2017

The first retail production 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE sold big for charity at the 2017 Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in sunny Palm Beach, Florida this past weekend. What Chevrolet is touting as “the most track capable Camaro ever” sold for a staggering final bid of $250,000 with 100% of the hammer price going to benefit United Way.

Chevrolet has established a new production car performance benchmark with the introduction of the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE. The ‘18 Camaro ZL1 1LE takes the track-focused 1LE formula to an unprecedented level by incorporating racing-based suspension and aero technologies, as well as exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R summer-only tires,* in an extreme track performance package. 

Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, put it this way, “The track-focused 1LE package offers progressive levels of performance across the Camaro lineup, from the V6 1LE to the SS 1LE, but with the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap — this is the ultimate track-day Camaro.” Preliminary testing shows that the new ZL1 1LE is 3 seconds faster than the standard ZL1 Coupe around General Motors’ 2.9-mile, 18-turn Milford Road Course test track.
