You would think they at least would have used some of the GMPP preformance stuff. The heads and cam kit for example. I mean it's only 40HP or so and I think 25 ftlbs but it is MORE. The brakes too. They should offer the ZL1 brake upgrade.

I have some ideas of what I'll do to mine once it gets here... I like that hood though. I've since decided that most likely the only thing coming from the GMPP catalog is the ZL1 brakes and if the price is off I'm just doing the CTS-V swap. It just doesn't sit right with me that they left the brakes out of the 1LE package.

I am getting one this summer and I am so excited I've already got lots of mods bought and can't wait to get it all together.

Awesome man!! Make sure and post pics as soon as you get your new car!!!

NEW BERGER CHEVROLET CAMARO 1LE SPECIAL EDITION SHINES ON THE STREET AND TRACK

Value-priced package adds concept-inspired style, offers capability-enhancing options

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Berger Chevrolet announces the release of its new, exclusive Berger Camaro 1LE, a uniquely styled version of Chevy’s track-oriented performance coupe. The Berger 1LE is available now with a suggested retail price of $39,985.

It is the latest special edition from one of the most renowned dealers in high-performance, with more than 40 years of heritage developing power- and appearance-enhancing packages for new Chevrolets.

“The Berger Camaro 1LE builds on an already great-performing car and gives it greater distinction,” said dealer Matt Berger. “It’s a great value that delivers style, exclusivity and excellent track capability for less than $40,000.”

The car’s visual elements are inspired by Chevrolet’s original 1LE SEMA Show vehicle and blended with the signature styling cues that have been associated with the West Michigan dealership’s performance models for more than four decades.

Unique features of the Berger Camaro 1LE include:
• Painted hood and heritage-style front-fender hash marks based on the 2012 1LE SEMA vehicle
• Blacked-out front grille enclosure
• Chevrolet Accessories heritage grille with bowtie bracket
• Berger-signature blacked-out rear panel with matching black taillight surrounds and “By Berger” rear emblem
• Black-painted wheel hub flanges
• Blacked-out front and rear bowtie surrounds
• Heritage blue front and rear bowties
• Custom 1LE front fender and rear deck lid badges with Heritage blue trim
• Billet “By Berger” underhood emblem and “Prescribed Power” underhood graphic
• “Prescribed Power” interior emblem.

The cost of the Berger Camaro 1LE is only $2,950 more than the MSRP of a factory Camaro 1SS-based 1LE. Additional appearance and suspension equipment is optional.

Core elements of the Camaro 1LE’s track-capable driving dynamics remain unaltered with the Berger edition, including the specific TREMEC six-speed manual transmission with close-ratio gearing that’s matched with a numerically higher 3.91 rear-axle ratio.

Additional chassis and suspension features of the factory package include monotube rear dampers in place of the standard SS’s twin-tube shocks, along with a larger 27mm solid front stabilizer bar, 28mm solid rear bar and a strut tower brace – all designed for greater body motion control and minimal roll in corners. A number of ZL1-based parts are also part of the factory package, including 20x10-inch wheels and 285/35ZR20 Goodyear Supercar G:2 tires, wheel bearings, toe links and rear shocks mounts, as well as the ZL1’s high-capacity fuel pump and additional fuel pickups that ensure unimpeded fuel delivery during high-load cornering.

“We didn’t mess with what works so well with the excellent 1LE package,” said Berger. “The unique transmission ratios and 3.91 gear totally transform the performance feel of the car, compared with a standard SS, but for those who want to take the performance of their car to the next level, we offer tailored upgrades that help the 1LE get around the track even quicker.”

Berger’s optional handling package costs $1,685 and includes:
• Wider 305/35ZR20 Goodyear F1 Supercar G:2 rear tires for enhanced grip
• Pfadt Race engineering coil springs with increased spring rate and approximately 1.25-inch lowered ride height
• Track-oriented four-wheel alignment.

Additional options include an aero package, with ZL1 composite lower rocker extensions and rear spoiler, for $1,190, and a composite extractor hood for $1,355.

“All in, a fully optioned Berger Camaro 1LE runs $48,890 on a 1SS model,” says Berger. “That’s about $7,500 less than the base price for a ZL1, while offering tremendous track capability and uncompromising drivability on the street. We can also do horsepower enhancements, but they’re handled individually with each customer.”

Berger Chevrolet was founded in 1925, in Grand Rapids, Mich., and has long been known as one of the preeminent high-performance dealerships, with “Prescribed Power” performance packages and special models offered since the 1960s. Berger Chevrolet was one of the original selling dealers for the 1969 COPO Camaros and sold one of the original 69 1969 Camaro ZL-1 models.
This takes my current favourite Camaro, and a true test of my Boss adoration and ramps up the appeal factor quite a bit. Nicely done!

I second that. Never understood why GM doesn't release something like this on other Camaros. Closest thing we have is the rear on Hot Wheels edition. LS7 rear black out was just the concept.

I was thinking the same thing. Seems to be mostly decorative details, for too much dough.

They are not one to give discounts.
Sign the papers and drive it off the lot and it's instantly worth 42k. I'd spend the cash on a ZL1 it will hold it's value much better.

Beautiful car. This is what the 1LE should have looked like. Any pictures of a real one?

Why does everyone rip off Dodge's rally stripes on the hood? It looks nice on a Challenger. That's it. Stop slapping these on 5.0s and 1LEs. It looks GAY! It screams wanna be a dodge. I think it's ugly.

some people don't know car history. kinda like the nose stripe on the front os the 1st gen camaro's was called the bumblebee stripe if you were to ask someone who only know's newer cars they'd look at you and say "sure thats the stripes on the dodges right?"

If you click on the installed options tab on their website, it will list the SS perfomance package. Still pretty expensive for a 2SS.

Exactly! I love when people don't know anything about history of cars, makes teaching them very fun on a forum
