2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Sets 7:41.27 Nurburgring Lap Time

Follow Nelson

Hot off the Twitter presses, General Motors' Jason Laird has relayed Mark Reuss' confirmation of a 7:41.27 Nordschleife lap time for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

That's not bad, all things considered: not so long ago, the Nissan GT-R was pretty proud of its 7:38 lap time. Though Godzilla has since brought its times down well into the 7:20s, putting a gussied up muscle car within shouting distance is no small feat.

Of course, a lot of the ZL1's lap time likely comes down to having the horsepower to pull serious speed down the 'Ring's long straights, with some of that given back in the more precariously windy bits, but even so, we're now a bit more interested in getting our Nomex-clad hands on the car than we already were.
