An American V-8 blows through the Nürburgring.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the measuring stick for every single sports car ever made. If a car doesn’t have a good Nürburgring lap time, then it’s usually not regarded as being a good “driver’s car.” Well, the new Camaro Z/28 can easily be considered a good “driver’s car” after it threw down an impressive lap time at the legendary track.
With a 7.0-liter LS7 producing 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft. of torque pounding the pavement, the Chevrolet team was able to achieve a very impressive 7:37.40 lap time in some wet conditions – four seconds faster than the supercharged Camaro ZL1. What’s probably even more impressive is that it’s also faster than the 991 Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640-4. Yes, an American sports/muscle car just beat those two foreign sports cars that are known for their performance.
That’s likely to ruffle a few feathers.
