Crashed Camaro ZL1 With Less Than 50 Miles Is Pleading To Be Saved From The Grave

A 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that’s suffered a significant amount of damage in the U.S. is currently available through Copart.

The track-focused muscle car, equipped with the 1LE package, was crashed with just 48 miles (77 km) on the clock. Images show that the car has sustained severe damage to both the front and rear end, which makes it restoring it a potentially costly business.

The bodywork damage could be repaired without too much fuss. All that would be required would be new headlights, fresh quarter panels, a new hood, front bumper and splitter. At the rear it needs a new tailgate, bumper, quarter panel, and taillight. However, most of the cost of repairing this Camaro would be spent on repairing the two wheels and suspension components that have been ripped off.

At the time of writing, the car had attracted a highest bid of $20,300, and we suspect that the person who placed that bid will look to sell off the car’s parts in an effort to make a profit. As long as the engine hasn’t suffered any damage, which it doesn’t appear to have, it could be sold for quite a lot of money as it hasn’t even been broken in yet. Additionally, much of the car’s cabin could probably be parted out without too much trouble.

No details are provided in the listing about the crash the Camaro was involved in. So, any brave soul out there willing to bring this practically new Camaro back to life?

    I don’t know about that one chief, this things looks like a complete write off. It probably has a salvage title too so even if someone decided to repair it, being able to drive it on the road legally might be an issue.

  • ok? looks more like a parts it out and get the best you can off the parts kinda thing to me.

    Powertrain looks intact and a lot of driveline components might still be good for a transplant. Then again, a new one might be cheaper and less work.

    It seems like it’s a total write-off. Sad, but trying to save this would mean some complications on the rise.

    Apart from the motor and gearbox, there would be a new car cost to repair the rest unless the buyer (if any) was a panel shop, motor workshop proprietor. IT IS surprising that a motor wrecker has not bid but then the asking price maybe be just as stupid as the decision to buy the new car in the first place.

    I’ve got a 2018 zl1. Seems this driver tempted fate without traction control on. These cars are no joke and 1 wrong move with the power these have and it could be really dangerous. Looks like nobody got hurt so that’s good
