Chevrolet uploaded a video of the 2017 Camaro ZL1 lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:29.60; 11.67 seconds quicker than the previous ZL1’s fast lap! A few technological tweaks (installation of data acquisition equipment, a roll hoop, and Sparco racing seats with six-point harnesses) were the only changes made to the 2017 Camaro ZL1, all other parts were stock production.
“To be almost 12 seconds quicker than the 5th-Generation ZL1 is a testament to the advanced design and technology of the new ZL1,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “From the improved aerodynamics, mass reduction and 650-horsepower LT4 to the Magnetic Ride Control, electronic limited-slip differential and Custom Launch Control, the ZL1 was designed to take on the world’s most challenging track, making it right at home on any track, road or drag strip anywhere.”
