I sold my supercharged SS/RS for the ZL1 and I couldn't be more pleased with this beast! I would fork over the extra dough if you can...

Didn't really consider ZL1 mainly because I couldn't. I believe that when it is all said and done the 1LE equipped SS will be the rarest of all the production fifth gens.

The 1LE is what the SS should and could have been from the start. The engineering from the ZL1 suspension and wheels, not including the magnetic shocks of course, eliminated the push that the SS has in a racing environment.
I prefer the ZL1 because it is the deal of the century in performance so far.

No. I wanted the power of a ZL1 and have factory warranty. Which excluded the 1LE from the get-go.

Great answers and input. I really like the ZL1 and two dealers close to me have one; one auto in black and a red manual.

The 1LE is black and also looks bad ass. I'm hoping to test drive it this weekend since I just drove a ZL1 and was extremely impressed.

My last car was an 11 second '87 Buick GN that I sold after owning it for 12 years.

The 1LE should have been a 1LE. The SS should have been the SS. Nothing more, nothing less.

The 1LE was my back up plan about 5 months ago if I couldnt get my hands on a ZL-1 in my area, I got real lucky and scored my dealers first allocation for a 2013 ZL. However If I had ended up with the 1LE it was never going to be my intention to try and turn a 1LE into a ZL-1. I had another back up plan / option I was also considering at the time and that was a 2013 2/ss that I actually had a deposite on, I was going to send it to Calloway for a super charger set up and some other work. My dealer has some kind of thing going with Calloway........... Just my story from my little corner of the old USA!

The 1LE was not available when I ordered my ZL1. I am glad it wasn't because I would have probably went with it instead as the ZL1 was at the top end of my price limit. It wouldn't have been a big deal to me either as you really wouldn't know what your were missing unless you drove a ZL1.

Now to the facts.... I am certain the 18k difference is TOTALLY worth the happiness I get when I drive/wash/see/think/dream/WOT the ZL1.

So well said I had to add it to my Signature.

Thanks for the feedback! We are glad you love the ZL1. With 580hp you cannot go wrong!

Never even considered the 1LE.
I had a 2011 2SS/RS Vert,and when they announced the ZL1 with a factory supercharger,that got my attention.
When they announced the ZL1 Vert, I ran down to the dealer to put my order in.
That was April 19 2012,and It was delivered 8-27-2012.

Price was never an issue, I wanted that factory supercharger.

And it's an INCREDIBLE car.
