ZL1 Body Changes from SS/LT/LS?....

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but looking at the ZL1, it looks lower and "fatter"/wider than the other Camaro models.

Did they do any body modifications to make it look so "fat"/wide?

I love the way it looks!!!

I believe the body is identical except for the front clip, the hood, the rear diffuser, spoiler and the ground effects.

Should be basically same body. Wider? Just the wheels and tires probably, they stick out more than any other Camaro including the 1LE on the rear. Lower? I don't know, probably would be my guess, but we have those side skirts too which would add to the appearance.

So what the other guy said, front fascia, bumper, hood, rear diffuser/bumper, spoiler, that's about it. All pieces that can be transferred between another Camaro and this one.

So yeah, other than the front fascia, bumper, hood, rear diffuser/bumper, spoiler, lower rocker panels and wider tires and wheels, they're the same car.

All "minor" differences. lol

Thanks for the info.

Even if it is the same size, it still looks fat! :thumpup:
