Love the video and review. Can't go wrong with Randy Probst. 1:22.7 was 5th fastest at Willow Springs (fastestlaps.com). Way to go Camaro 1LE

Of course the 1LE owners already know how well it handles....but we don't mind repetition!

Acctually the other quote was "Best balanced Camaro yet."

And "...definitely at home on the track."

And "Steering response is fantastic."

Also the word amazing was used a few times.

The ZL1 IS the ultimate (all around) Camaro! The 1LE is track focused.

That's kinda reworking the wording on the ZL1's initial goal...

Wow, probably the best review I've seen for any Camaro model so far...there was a brief/minor mention of visibility issues and that's the closest thing I could see to a "negative" of this car. Once again, can't say it enough: Great job by GM, Team Chevy, and Team Camaro and I'm glad to own one of these bad boys

The advertising always showed it as a CAN DO everything Camaro with ALL the toys standard.
