Don't the Boss 302 and GT500 have more hp, 440 and 650 respectively to 426 hp?

If I wasn't in love with my 2010 I'd would have filled out an order form for a 1LE as soon as it was official. Bad@$$ car. Amazing time.

Man... I'm still dissapointed that there were no engine upgrades at all. They could have at least gave it the dry sump LS3 out of the grand sport and the front clapiers from the ZL1... out if the 3 muscle cars... just don't know which one to buy

I would like to order one, but not a big fan of the flat black hood, maybe there will be a delete option, otherwise a very nice camaro.

Buddy it was like 90 degrees in the morning of this run, isn't that enough to show that the 1LE ran in somewhat worse conditions than the competition. Everyone knows how our LS motors suffers when heat kicks in and this bad boy still kicked a$#$#$#. Now imagine when an owner get's their 1LE cammed, LTs. and head moded with tune to say 490 whp, then .

I think the option will be to use a heat gun and peel it off, that's what I would do once it started looking crappy...vinyl wont last long without showing marks/fading.

Why are you guys always finding fault. I am on my second 5th gen SS and still a creakless interior. Nothing makes a noise in my car even with stiff is heck suspension and 14000 hard driven miles since Feb 2012.

My kind of driving! Spinning 4-6K all day long.....
Car looks like it had some stick too! Didn't look too squirrely......looks like he lost concentration though a few times.
Very nice.....

To the folks who want more power.....? Upgrade! that Z06 trans will take 1000hp easy.....but its hard to use that in the turns.

There's a lot of value in the $3500 package....

So a 1SS + 1LE prices out at like $37K....thats a great deal....what if I own 3 GM cars now.....do I get a loyal customer discount?

Becky.....can you order one yet?

I was making a joke.. but there was something creaking in the video . It's a WELL known issue with at least 10-11 MY camaros btw and I have stiff suspension as well... glad to hear your car doesn't have that issue

Correct. And then to top it off the Mustangs weigh less. The Camaro is defying physics laws....which is why Ford Fans are crying

Thar would be nice. However, what do you think that car would cost? That would make the car cost close to a ZL1. If that were the case, why would anyone buy it?
