I think people put too much stock in these words. I can remember Randy Pobst saying the ZL1 was his new favorite American muscle car, unseating the Boss LS. It doesn't really mean much. Just words. Numbers speak for themselves. ZL1 is no doubt the top performing factory Camaro and for the price it better be. The 1LE is an outstanding factory option and may handle better, whatever that means, but the ZL1 will lap faster.
