Chevrolet’s 650bhp 2017 Camaro ZL1 nukes the Nürburgring

American cars are – let’s face it – not that good.

They don’t sell well outside of the US Continent, although the Middle East do like them. When was the last time you saw a Cadillac or a Dodge on the roads?

However the recent trend on retro muscle cars changes that.

I love the Dodge Challenger, as true to the original as possible in shape and form. The Ford Mustang is not a bad looker.

This Camaro though…………aye, carumba!

More importantly, it has lapped The Ring in under 7 mins and 30 seconds…..according to Car magazine, that is bloody quick:

  • 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S 7:37.9
  • 2013 Mercedes AMG GT S 7:35.00
  • 2015 McLaren 650S Spider 7:35.00
  • 2012 Lexus LFA 7:34.00
  • 2008 Koenigsegg CCX 7:33.55
  • 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia 7:32.92
  • 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia QF 7:32.00
  • 2013 Porsche 911 GT3 7:32.00
  • 2016 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 7:29.60

    Via the power of YouTube, you can now marvel at this beast of a motor doing the business.

    I want one.

    And wonder how long before Mattel release umpteen versions as a Hot Wheels car……….
