2011 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE Concept
The Camaro 1LE Concept recalls the track-focused 1LE package from CamaroÕs third generation. The new 1LE Concept is based on a Camaro SS, with competition ready modifications, including lightweight 20-inch black wheels, six-piston brakes, shock tower brace, and active exhaust system.

Born in the Camaro’s third generation and refined further in the fourth generation as a road-racing performance package, the legendary 1LE option code designation returns to the Camaro as a concept intended to carve up road courses. While only a concept, it borrows production components from both the Camaro SS and forthcoming Camaro ZL1 to deliver a competition-ready package. Hash mark graphics on the front fender are pure Chevrolet racing cues, too.

Vehicle highlights:

* Victory Red exterior color, with flat black hood and hash mark extensions
* Satin black splitter, rocker panels, rear spoiler and outside mirrors
* Sport suspension featuring Magnetic Ride Control
* Electric power steering
* Six-speed manual close-ratio transmission
* Lightweight 20×10-inch (front) and 20×11-inch (rear) racing wheels (satin black)
* Goodyear® Eagle F1 Supercar G asymmetrical tires (from the ZL1)
* Brembo® six-piston front calipers, with two-piece front rotors, and four-piston rear calipers (Chevrolet Official Licensed Product)
* Dual exhaust outlets with ZL1-style active exhaust and diffuser
* Shock tower brace
* Chevrolet Accessories red engine cover
* Black leather interior with Light Stone stitching
* Graphite Silver door and instrument panel inserts
* ZL1 shifter with Light Stone stitching
* ZL1 flat-bottom steering wheel
* Chevrolet Accessories pedal kit

“The Camaro 1LE concept is all about the track,” said Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer for the Camaro. “It’s an all-out race car package that pays tribute to that special option from the past.”
