Camaro Z/28 Aero Package Explained Against 1LE (C&D Video)

Car & Driver put up a video that explains briefly the aerodynamics that have been added to the new Z/28, how they establish downforce and the slight subtle differences between some components from the 1LE and Z/28 which is pretty neat. Enjoy!

It is nice, but geez those tail lights... I hate them. I will not upgrade to a newer Camaro until I see what the 2016 will look like and I really hope they change those horrid tails to look more like the 2010-13s. If they are the same tails, I'll upgrade to a 2013 SS and be happy with that.

Note the license plate change on the 1LE. One plate in the beginning, then a different one later on.

Yes I like the older rear lights. Yes owners with a 14 are going to say they like the new rear lights, but I have both 13 and 14. 13 better looking.

Same here, I see a mix of 69 and 79, as they wrap around similar to late 2nd gens.

Actually we are spending about $6,000 to update to the new look cause we like it better. I feel the 10-13 has a really "FAT ASS" and the 14 has a smiler and tighter piece, BTW, in case your wondering I am talking car talk here, LOL

They make quarter panels, rear decks and hoods in carbon fiber for the design before the refresh. Can't remember the manufacturer off the top of my head but with all of those components you can take off 20lbs. of weight which would kinda come in handy if you were a track competitor. Although you'll end up spending around 3K for everything, which would come out to you spending $150 per pound, would be a tad bit pricey for the everyday folk. But hey if you're spending $75K + why not drop an additional 3-5K for additional lighter exterior carbon fiber parts.

Sorry to dissapoint the 10-13 5th gen owners but i believe the tail lights will be very similar on the 6th gen(2016).

Of course they will stay the same they aren't going to go BACKWARDS. The Tail lights are the same as the euro cars excpet for the lens. Hence they only have to make ONE rear end not two.

Not disappointing to me because the 5th Gens design will be one of the best forever . Not like the refresh that looks more like every other car on the street because of the taillights and front. The 6th Gen definitely want be as loved as the 5th Gen. Neither ! So I definitely will pick a 5th Gen over a 6th just because the Retro 60's look.
