Chevrolet already set a record on the Nurburgring track with the stock Camaro ZL1, which completed a lap at the famed Ring in seven minutes and 29.6 seconds. Now, Chevy is going for the Nurburgring lap record again behind the wheel of the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE. The model was already spotted at the Nurburgring by fans a few weeks ago, but recently the brand teased the lap time results in a not-so-revealing video that aimed to amp up anticipation for the reveal. Enthusiasts were answered with another record-breaking performance.
The lap time video followed the teaser a few days later, showcasing a stunning seven minutes and 16.04 second drive time that blitzed the Camaro ZL1’s record. Automakers achieved this feat by taking the standard ZL1 trim and adding the track-oriented 1LE package to the midst, including a 650-horsepower V8 under the hood, a manual transmission, and aerodynamics tweaks that are unparalleled in the industry.
The video of the Nurburgring lap record is available online – or visit us at Weisner of Huntsville and ask for information on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 equipped with the 1LE package for yourself. What would you do with that kind of capability and power?
