The pricing for the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible and Chevy Camaro 1LE has been confirmed by Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser at an event in Grand Rapids Michigan this past weekend. The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible is set at a base price of $60,445 and the Chevy Camaro 1LE is set to start at $37,035. The $900 destination fee is included in both of these prices. Not bad for two of the hottest super sports cars to hit the roadways in a number of years now.
If you remember the Camaro ZL1 left the Ford Shelby GT500 in the dust in recent side by side comparisons and while some critics say that they like how the Ford feels stiffer over the comfort of the Camaro, overall the Camaro seems to be the choice to make. The convertible is that same version, only with a soft-top. It gives a whopping 580 horsepower and 556 pound feet of torque. The Chevy 1LE is a less powerful Camaro model, but don’t be fooled, because less powerful for a Camaro is still going to see you burning down the highways and byways faster than most of the sports cars in its class. Both versions have a variety of exciting updates for Camaro fans to be happy about including electric power assisted steering and the MyLink infotainment system.
While you are waiting to take either one of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible and Chevy Camaro 1LE out for a spin take a look at the latest video of the 2013 Camaro 1LE speeding around the Virginia International Speedway in an unprecedented 2:58:34. This is 4.46 seconds faster than the Boss 302 Laguna Seca and comes within two seconds of the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Ariel Atom 3 and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
