    Exclamation Chevy Camaro to get Boss 302-rivaling 1LE trim for 2013

    Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Etc., Chevrolet


    General Motors struck back at the mighty Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with the similarly brawny Camaro ZL1, and now it looks like GM has taken aim at the Mustang Boss 302 as well.

    According to posts on the Camaro5.com forums, a dealer reference guide has revealed buyers will be able to opt for a new performance track package for the 2013 Camaro. The 1LE pack includes a number of aerodynamic tweaks, including an aggressive front splitter and unique rear spoiler, both painted in smoke gray. Red Brembo brake calipers, a hood wrapped in matte black vinyl and 20-inch wheels shod in Goodyear Eagle Supercar tires are all part of the party. Those big rollers are actually borrowed from the ZL1.

    Larger sway bars front and rear as well as stronger axle half shafts help the vehicle withstand track abuse. A Tremec six-speed manual gearbox with a higher 3.91 final drive and a liquid cooling system is also standard. Finally, the report says the Camaro 1LE will feature an optional dual-mode exhaust similar to what's found on the Chevrolet Corvette.

    Will the hardware be enough to help the Camaro fend off the road-race ready Boss 302? Given the sublime driving experience the tweaked Mustang offers its buyers and the heady 444 horsepower on hand, it seems unlikely. That doesn't mean we'd be averse to putting the two head to head on a track, however.Chevy Camaro to get Boss 302-rivaling 1LE trim for 2013 originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 27 Mar 2012 09:15:00 EST.

    Track days are fantastic things, as people get drive their cars to their limits in ways that are not legal on roads. A ton of car companies have been making versions of their road vehicles for tracks for a while. Chevrolet is launching one in the fall: the Camaro 1LE. In fact, some track toys come close. For instance, the Caterham Seven Classic starts at $29,580, though the Caterham is a kit car; it requires the owner install an engine and transmission, along with a few other components. Well, $40,000 can build a pretty good example that would give both the 302 and 1LE a serious run for their money as the Seven is much lighter and more nimble than the Mustang or Camaro.
