    Cool 2017 Camaro ZL1 Beats Previous Generation’s Nürburgring Lap Time



    Wow.

    Lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a blistering 7:29.60, the new 2017 Camaro ZL1’s lap time at the world’s most challenging track is 11.67 seconds quicker than the previous ZL1’s fast lap.

    It is fast..and it also has 640 HP...I'm more interested to see what future Z/28 will do (beat BMW M4 GTS, Porsche GT3 RS maybe)..i just hope it has N.A engine.
    Also too bad there isn't any time for CTS-V and ATS-V

    You know the one they put together quickly from GM parts to rain on the original ZL1 party?

    Always wondered why the new Z06 times were never revealed, its either stupid fast to the point they felt no one would believe the time it laid, or it overheated and they could not get a decent lap done in the allotted time.

    Be really interesting what times the mid-engine Corvette (or Cadillac) will do once in production. If GM can post times like this with a "compromised" front engine layout, then a mid-engine layout will presumably provide spectacular results.

    Highly unlikely

    I think even GM could manage to prepare one Corvette to make couple of fast laps without overheating.

    One of the possibility is that time was not as good as GM expected...or..maybe they won't tell the time because they are not sure mid-engine Vette will be able to break it in first couple of years.
