The V8-powered, 650 hp Camaro ZL1 recorded a 7:29.6 time on the Nurburgring, 11 seconds faster than the previous generation ZL1. In the FR category (that is front engine, rear-wheel drive layout), it’s 17 seconds slower than the 600 hp 2010 Dodge Viper ACR - the fastest road-legal FR car to lap the N-Ring.
