VIDEO: The Camaro ZL1 1LE Slays the Nurburgring!

There 6th-gen ZL1 is an animal; whether you’re referring to its power/weight ratio, standard features, handling capabilities or sheer brute force with 650 hp on tap, it’s a beast. Of course, in typical Chevrolet fashion, it could always be improved upon — even from Chevrolet itself!

We’ve been hearing rumors, seeing spy shots and even ran across the official release from Chevrolet regarding this amazing machine, but today there’s even bigger news. The ZL1 1LE just slaughtered the Nurburgring, running a 7:16.04 around the 13-mile German road course. Read more in the official release from Chevrolet below, and enjoy the clip!

Official Release:

DETROIT — The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE has conquered the Green Hell in a new video from Chevrolet, lapping the Nürburgring’s 12.9-mile (20.8 km) Nordschleife (“north loop”) in only 7:16.04, making it the fastest Camaro to ever lap the famed German track.

The ZL1 1LE’s time is quick enough to place it 13.56 seconds ahead of the Camaro ZL1 with 10-speed automatic that Chevrolet tested last year.

“With chassis adjustability unlike any vehicle in its peer group, the Camaro ZL1 1LE challenges supercars from around the world regardless of cost, configuration or propulsion system,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “To make up more than a second per mile on the Nordschleife compared to the ZL1 automatic is a dramatic improvement and speaks to the 1LE’s enhanced track features.”

The Camaro ZL1 1LE takes Chevrolet’s track-focused 1LE legacy to an even higher level, with racing-based adjustable suspension components — including Multimatic DSSV (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) front and rear dampers — special front dive planes and carbon-fiber rear wing, and exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R summer-only tires,* in an extreme track performance package powered by the 650-horsepower LT4 supercharged V-8 engine.

The Nürburgring lap time was achieved with the ZL1 1LE test car’s suspension adjusted for optimal track performance and running the production Goodyear tires.

“The harder you push the Camaro ZL1 1LE, the more it rewards you on the track,” said Bill Wise, Camaro ride and handling engineer and the driver of the hot lap. “It offers total control, with the confidence that it will deliver lap after lap.”

The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE (order code A1Z) carries an MSRP of $69,995, which includes a $995 destination charge (excludes tax, title, license, dealer fees extra). It goes on sale this summer.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive
    content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the

    any methods to help reduce content from being ripped off?

    It’s pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent
    content material as you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
