Nürburgring lap time: Chevrolet Camaro ZL1: 7:41:27 image

General Motors announced North American President Mark Reuss said on its Twitter page that the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 recently hit up the Nurburgring and did it in 7:41.27.

That time places the upcoming top-of-the-line Camaro ZL1 just four hundredths of a second over the Porsche 911 Turbo S. The title of the fastest GM model on the ‘Ring is currently held by another Chevrolet, the 2012 Corvette ZR1 with a time of 7:19.63.

Currently there’s no word on who was behind the wheel during that mad dash around the track, but we have our fingers crossed for some suitably spectacular video sometime soon.

Back in the present, the 2012 ZL1 aims to grow the legend, and it comes well prepared with a supercharged LSA V-8, borrowed from the Cadillac CTS-V.
