1LE Looks VS ZL1

I have a '15 AGM ZL1 on order, which I am very excited about. But the more I look at pictures of the 1LE, the more I think it is a better looking car than the ZL1.
Other than the front facia, what is different about the 1LE than the ZL1 that contributes to the different look?

Thanks,
Ken

Well the 1le has the refreshed front and hood that adds to the aggressiveness couple that with front splitter and mate hood and you got a winning combination.

The hood w/the carbon fiber air outlet is on the ZL1, while the 1LE has the SS hood.
Also think the rear diffusers are different.
....and the side rocker panels are on the ZL1.

Along with what's been mentioned. Obviously no supercharger and no magnetic ride control on 1LE.

Congrats on your order!
the 1LE looks like the racy kid and the ZL1 is the brute.

i like the front end of 1LE. the ZL1 needs to be updated. we'll see in a couple of months..
only from going around the cars, you'll notice the hood, front end,rockers,mud flaps. that's it.of course the ZL1 emblems...

Thanks for the replies. Yea, I think the updated front clip of the 1LE has a lot to do with it. The 1LE has a more raw, nasty, in your face look, whereas the ZL1 is a tough boulevard cruiser with great amenities. I am getting the AGM with black wheels stealth look. Both beautiful cars.
I currently have a '13 Cyber Gray, Black wheels, black badges Corvette Grand Sport, so similar color combo to what I am getting in the ZL1. I am very much looking forward to getting the ZL1.

Thanks,
Ken

The ZL1 carbon fiber air outlet insert is an option, stock is black

Well, technically they are both carbon fiber. The optioned one has a clear coat finish, the standard is painted dark gray (they were matte black during the 2012 1st year).

I always thought that, if I got a ZL1, I want to wrap the hood and paint the calipers red to get the best of both worlds.

But, the ZL1 front end does seem . . . dated. Maybe a supercharger on the 1LE is a better way to go

Looks are one thing....

Once you drive the ZL1 all these silly questions will go away...I promise.

Just get a wrapped hood and it looks similar. I think the Non-RS 14-15 look more sinister then a RS car. Probably do to the Z28 has the same look.
