This option is offered on the Camaro 1SS, and 2SS coupe models. The first 1LE package was inspired by Camaro's Pro-Am road racing involvement in 1988. While the Camaro 1LE is geared for handling the speed and turns of road-racing, it keeps the interior features of convenience.

Engine

The 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine, found in the Camaro SS, delivers 426 horsepower, and 420 lb-ft of torque. The Tremec TR 6060, six-speed, stick transmission is optimized for track racing. It is equipped with an air-to-liquid cooling system and short-throw shifter for track use. Many compare this Camaro to the Ford Mustang Boss 302 in the track-ready sports car category.

Package Features

The 1LE package begins with a larger front stabilizer bar, and solid rear stabilizer bar, for more control. To increase the level of traction, stronger rear-axle shafts were added. The strut tower brace improves response in steering, and the front and rear Goodyear Eagle Supercar G-2 tires increase grip at higher speeds.

The Camaro ZL1- inspired bearings, toe links, and rear shock mounts deliver better on-track performance, and the high-capacity fuel pump provides improved delivery during cornering.

Exterior

The Camaro 1LE exudes sportiness, with its black hood. A variety of stripe packages are also available for personalization. The front-end splitter, and rear-end spoiler are designed to reduce aerodynamic lift at higher speeds. It sports a unique front bumper, red brake calipers, and unique, while also functional front and rear airdams. Ten-inch spoke wheels, and high-intensity discharge headlights finish the sleek and sporty exterior.

Interior

The interior has all the luxuries of a Camaro SS. Color-touch radio with MyLink infotainment is offered, along with OnStar navigation. Heads-up display, and rear-vision is also offered. The six-speaker Boston Acoustic sound system makes for enjoyable listening.

The colors available include gray, black, orange, beige, mojave, and inferno. Contrast stitching is used to accentuate the highlights on the inside. The flat-bottom steering wheel is trimmed in microfiber, giving it and a short-throw shifter a suede feel and look.

Safety Features

The standard safety features of the SS are included. These are the six air bags with side-curtain bags. The Camaro 1LE is a fast, sporty, racing-capable vehicle which has the interior of a sporty coupe.

The steering is balanced for better driver control, and is built to provide driving safety. This car takes the best elements of Chevrolet cars, and combines it into one fast and fun-to-drive car, the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE.
