new 1LE pulls off faster lap times than the 5th gen Z/28
« on: September 21, 2016, 01:38:37 AM »
Thought this was an interesting story. The new 2017 1LE pulls off faster lap times than the 5th gen Z/28 at Laguna Secca,
check it out:

(Probably cheaper than 75k as well) Actual 2017 1LE price ($44,490) the 1LE is a +$6500 to a 1SS.

In actuality about 11k cheaper than the 2017 Shelby GT350:

cool video. Makes you wonder what the 6th gen Z/28 will do at the track?

No doubt a good performer, and that guy (Randy Pobst) surely can drive.. :)

If the camaro offered better driver's seat visibility I would want one..

Just the new SS cars are impressive, a fellow CRCC member here bought a 50th anniversary SS and bone stock the car turns 12.2's. Its over a full second faster than my basically stock 14 SS that's running 13.3-13.5's
