With a circuit time of 7:37 minutes on the northern loop of the Nürburgring, Zuffenhausen got a new competitor, who should by no means be lightly dismissed. On the 20.8 kilometres stretch through the Green Hell that makes up the circuit, the car is about seven seconds faster than the current Porsche 911 S and so seamlessly joins the series of successes of the legendary Z/28 models that have been making history since 1967.
Mainly responsible for the superior performance of the new Camaro Z/28 is the sumptuous seven-litre V8 heart with dry sump lubrication. Thank to titanium inlet valves, aluminium cylinder heads and new high-lift camshafts, the optimised LS7 power train straps a taut 507 HP and a mighty 637 newton metre torque on the drive shaft. A Tremec 6-speed gear shift mechanism, a K&N cold air intake air filter and an optimised body aerodynamics allow for an extremely superior performance apportioning as well as highly efficient cooling and stability during prolonged high-speed runs.
