Those of you familiar with the Car And Driver’s Lightning Lap will probably be happy to know that THE 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V6 1LE has just claimed a fastest LL1 time in the event’s 10-year history. In fact, it not only stomped its current rival from Ford, a Mustang Ecoboost with the Performance package, but it also got within half a second of the mighty Charger Hellcat. All this with just 335 horsepower on tap? Yes, indeed. It’s obvious then that the all-new Camaro V6 is the type of vehicle that’s capable of punching above its weight class. In sector four of the track, the Camaro proved quicker than the Audi R8 V10, the F-Type Project 7 and the previously mentioned 707 horsepower Charger Hellcat. The official time for the Chevrolet Camaro was 3:04, which also happens to be just one tenth shy of a 2012 Porsche Cayman R and the 2016 Focus RS’ runs. And, according to Car and Driver, what sets the Chevrolet Camaro apart isn’t necessarily its straight line speed, and more so its grip. Well, during its high-speed run, the 1LE proved very poised in the corners and its steering helped this driver point the front tires precisely where he needed them. Furthermore, thanks to the $4,500 1LE kit, the Chevrolet Camaro’s optional Brembo brakes and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric3 rubber helped the vehicle avoid those pesky cool-down laps that many sports vehicles seem to require nowadays. The kit also includes the limited-slip differential and the firmer suspension as well. It seems Chevy really hit one out of the park with a 1LE Camaro. Should the Blue Oval be worried though?
