2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

Back in February, we told you about the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE, the most track-capable Camaro ever. Turns out, all of those aerodynamic and suspension tweaks made a BIG difference, with the new model lapping the Nurburgring a whole 13 seconds faster than the regular ZL1. Whoa!

As you’ll see in the video below, the Camaro ZL1 1LE lapped the Nordschleife in an incredibly fast 7 minutes, 16.04 seconds. For those of you keeping score, that’s faster than the Ferrari 488 GTB, Nissan GT-R, BMW M4 GTS, and even the previous-gen 911 GT2 RS. Impressive, given it’s modest $69,995 price tag.

To achieve the record, Chevrolet kept the production Goodyear tires but adjusted the car’s suspension for the track. The car was driven by Camaro ride and handling engineer Bill Wise.
