Camaro. Nurburgring. Enough Said.

As you’re probably just going to look at the video, this may be superfluous, but: Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, said after the Camaro’s 7:41.27 lap, “The Nurburgring is unlike any track in the world.

As you’re probably just going to look at the video, this may be superfluous, but:

Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, said after the Camaro’s 7:41.27 lap, “The Nurburgring is unlike any track in the world. Each lap includes fast straights, sweeping off-camber turns, hairpin corners, and elevation changes. In order to do well on the ‘Ring, the car has to do everything well – including acceleration, braking, and lateral grip. Breaking an eight-minute lap in a 2+2 production car is a tremendous accomplishment, and validates that the Camaro ZL1 will truly be track-ready from the showroom.”

 

The Camaro ZL1 is based on the Camaro SS, but more than 30% of the SS was reengineered for this new car, which will be available during Q1 2012.

With a 580-hp supercharged 6.2-liter LSA engine (it also produces 556 lb.-ft. of torque) it will be the most powerful production Camaro ever.

But you probably already figured that one out.
