First Production Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Sells For $250,000 At Barrett-Jackson

The first production unit of 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE was sold at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction. The most track-capable variant of the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro met the hammer with a selling price of $250,000 with each dollar going to benefit The United Way.

Chevrolet revealed the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE at Daytona International Speeway ahead of the Daytona 500.
The 1LE uses the same 650-hp, 650-lb-ft supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V-8 as the standard ZL1, so all of the upgrades happen outside of the engine bay. The 1LE replaces the stock 285-width tires with 305s in the front and 325s in the rear. The tires are Goodyear’s new Eagle F1 Supercar 3R, the company’s first cup tire design.
The tires were developed specifically for the ZL1 1LE and are the widest ever to appear on a factory Camaro.
The model also gets the DSSV spool-valve dampers. The suspension features an adjustable ride height, solid-mounted front struts, adjustable camber plates, a hard-mounted rear cradle, and an adjustable rear anti-roll bar.

Pricing hasn’t been announced, but most figure a base MSRP around $65,000
