    GM today announced the Camaro ZL1-1LE.

    It is basically a ZL1 prepped for the track. Multimatic DSSV spool valve shocks, adjustable ride height, adjustable camber plates, adjustable rear sway bar, 19" forged wheels with 305 in the front and 325 in the rear, lots of aero stuff. Apparently it weighs 60lb less than the regular ZL1.

    Now Camaro has the V6 1LE, the SS, the V8 1LE, the ZL1, and the ZL1 1LE. That is quite a lineup of track cars.

    Wow that's impressive. I'm a big fan of the Multimatic DSSV dampers and was hoping we'd see them on the GT350 but it didn't happen. I doubt they'll sell more than 1,000 copies. Ford's got their work cut out for them so let's hope we see something soon.

    Seems Ford was ahead of the game for awhile but now has to play catch up....This has to come to a head soon or later.....yes, no or maybe?

    Always works that way. Competition has been incredibly great for us so far.

    That doesn't bother me so much. Kinda looks like a kid with braces and 'headgear'. ;D

    I just don't understand why it appears to sit so high in the back though.

    I agree it looks like a car from the original fast and furious with all the crap from a catalog on it

    I flew home and took my daughter to the Chicago Auto Show last week. We went to the chevy display hoping to see new Camaros and Vette's. Unfortunately, they had only one Camaro, Non-performance version and NO Vettes. WTF?? I was disappointed. I thought that Chevy would be showing off their new pony cars and vette. Not so. Shame. They have really raised the bar and should be pushing their new rides.

    I did see the GT-350, Taurus SHO, Mustang GT, Ford GT, Raptor etc..

    Chevy looked like a poor sedan supplier. We know that just aint the case. Caddy had their performance line on display. Perhaps a corporate decision to push Caddy's?

    This car is three seconds a lap faster than the standard version at GM's Milford test track. Wow!
