New footage has emerged of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 attacking the Nurburgring, and as you'll see, it has set an interesting lap time – 7:29.60 min. That is a very quick lap time, 11.67 seconds faster than the previous ZL1, and faster than a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG – proving that muscle cars are now evolving in to very capable track cars. The car in the video is equipped with the optional ten-speed automatic transmission, and just shows why more and more people are opting for modern, fast-shifting autos to get the best out of a performance car.
Hennessey Performance have gotten their hands on the all new Chevy Camaro SS, and have wasted no time in trying to make it angrier. A supercharger, a freer breathing exhaust, sports air intake, upgraded ECU, and drag radial tires make up their HPE550 package. As the number suggests, the Camaro packs north of 550 hp, enabling it to make a sub 12 sec run to the quarter mile.
The Chevrolet Camaro is back and is hungry to show Ford's Mustang and Dodge's Challenger a thing or two of what a modern muscle car should be all about. Edmunds' Inside Line was quick to put the all new Chevy Camaro SS against the Mustang GT and Challenger R/T. The war of the Muscle cars is definitively on.
