1LE vs SLP

I have been considering a 1LE and then came across a new 2010 SLP ZL575.

I am leaning towards the SLP, over 600 HP, brand new, less that 50 miles and almost as cheap as a new 1LE.

The SLP is loaded, what's you'lls thoughts?

Get the 1LE you can make it a SLP ZL what ever if you want and still have those hot wheels, tranny cooling and what not plus better swaybars stock.

Depends on your needs.
For a street car that you might take to the drag strip occasionally, I'd jump all over the SLP Supercharged setup (can't argue with HP).

But if your plans include road racing, road course, autocross, etc, the 1LE would be the car of choice.

Pretty much my thoughts too. Each car may have a purpose. It would be great to afford both!

It depends on how long you are going to keep it, and how important your bumper to bumper 3year/ 36,000 miles and 5 year powertrain coverage is. It may be "new" untitled but has Chevrolet started the clock on the warranty?? The 3 year may be already be up on time.

Personally I think I would take the 1LE.

I own a 2011 SLP ZL-585. Great car and i love the fact that the stripes are painted and cleared over instead of stickers. Mine dynod 499hp/490tq RWH with 500 miles on it. SLP gives a 5year 100k miles warranty also! Its a steal at 49k. Put some lightweight wheels and real rubber and swaybars and youll be good for autocrossing as well.

Best thing is they only produce 250 a year so its very unlikely youll ever see a SLP car just like yours. Buddy here got the first zl-1 in utah in march. There is allready 3 zl-1s same color and wheels as his here in town. Its not as unique as it was!

Go for SLP

If your paying 49k for the slp skip it and pay up for the ZL1! The Zl1 is enginered to last.

Saw the pic on ebay of the 49k slp and looks dated. No comparison to the Zl1 which is only 8k more. If it was me I would go for the Zl1 and finance trough gm . If you want to save money like myself go for the 1le.

I wish a ZL1 was only 8,000 more, I can't find one where I'm at or on ebay for anything less than 61-65,000 and that's without the mark up.

These are fully loaded, drilled 16" rotors, 6 piston brembos on the front, lowered and adjustable sway bars.

My plans don't include road racing, and I don't do much drag racing, I just wanted an upgrade in power and I really liked it being a 2010 (first yr car).

If you put an additional 10k into the slp motor it wouldnt last a week! Ls3 is not designed to handle the stress of all that power.

Why on Gods green earth would you want a 2010 knowing that earlier cars has lots of bugs. My 2012 vs my 2011 is still way better. Swaybar studs for example are larger and more robust for larger swaybars, the 2010 studs were puny for like Honda civics. 1LE and ZL-1 has tranny coolers, diff coolers, electric power assist, dual mode exhaust. Screw 2010s.
