The delivery of the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is only a few short months away, and our excitement is reaching a fever pitch! Now that Chevy has released a video of the ZL1 racing around the Green Hill at 7:29.60, which is 11.67 seconds faster than the previous ZL1, 7.87 seconds faster than the 5th-gen Z/28, and only trails the C6 ZR1 by 10 seconds!
We knew this new generation ZL1 was going to be a track beast, but we didn’t know that GM was going to absolutely throw down for its product. In fact, it’s one of the thirty fastest production cars that have ever been around the Nordschleife, and it’s in good company!
Most importantly to the Chevy guys, the ZL1 crushed the Ford Shelby GT350R by 2.59 seconds, making it the fastest muscle car to ever make laps on the track.
The bar has been raised!
