The Chevy Camaro Track concept is a 1LE by another name

For the 2017 Geneva auto show, Chevrolet has trotted out a big, green, track-ready Camaro that isn't called a 1LE. It's called the Camaro Track concept. It also has a different graphics package consisting of unique black stripes on the hood and roof. They're paired with a custom "satin green" paint job.

These are just cosmetic differences, though. Mechanically, this Camaro Track is basically a US-spec Camaro SS 1LE, which we've confirmed with Chevrolet is currently a vehicle exclusive to the US. It has the FE4 suspension package from that car, as well as the ZL1, which includes magnetic shocks, and revised springs and sway bars. It also gets the SS 1LE's electronically-controlled limited slip differential, Brembo six-piston front brakes, and extra coolers for the engine, transmission, and differential. Even the tires are the same. At all four corners are Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires in the same widths as the 1LE. The only major difference is that this Track concept has an 8-speed automatic transmission. In the States, all three levels of 1LE are exclusively manual.

Inside, it features suede on the steering wheel and center console, comes with Recaro seats, and the pedals are aluminum. Outside it has a front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler that also appear to be cribbed from the 1LE. Chevy also added black bow-ties and smoked taillights that are available as Camaro accessories. According to Chevrolet, a number of the accessories on this car are US-exclusive, but some of them will be available in Europe in the near future.
