Z/28 Camaro and C7 Corvette testing at Nurburgring
 
Shows a more recent testing of the Z/28.

Great sounds! Maybe we'll see some C7 and Z/28 Nurburgring times soon.:thumb:

Just a little more of the Corvette...

I don't know what they've done to the Z/28's exhaust but not only does it sound different from the Vette but it sounds quite a bit better! Man what a gorgeous sound!

"What if the 2014 z28 can't produce a better time than the ZL1 at a long track like Nurburgring? It is impossible to match the speed of the ZL1 at Nurburgring, cornering, braking, handling and ride could all favor the ZL1 as well... Remember, the ZL1 is a one lap wonder, but that first lap is usually a very, very fast lap... If the z28 is down 12mph on the 3km straight, it will be hard to beat the ZL1's time... I think that's a 7-8 second loss right there... I'd have to do the math."

guess who wrote that nonsense in another forum???…hint…"make up". When a keyboard jockey uses the word "impossible" that should tell you something ;)


I figured the "lap of the gods" needs to get done around now so these new videos make sense in the timing and can't you just tell the z was eating the 7.

I could watch these videos all day! :bonk:

ThaCamaroKid 09-07-2013 12:35 PM

Pretty cool footage, I want some numbers though!

I think the Z/28 will be low 7:30's maybe high 7:20's around the ring, if it breaks into the 7:20's I'd consider that a massive success.

The only 2 cars with weight similar to that of the Z/28 in the Top 30 around the ring are the Nissan GT-R @ #10/#14, and the Lamborghini Aventador @ #17....

I have high hopes for the Z/28 but I don't see it hot lapping the Aventador.

The factory Tri-Y shorty headers and 3" exhaust sure sounds good on that big small block LS7.

both look like really sticky cars

x1sniper3x 09-07-2013 02:11 PM

Awesome video! :thumbup::thumbup:

That Z/28 really does look at home on the track..can't wait to see some lap times :popcorn:

The Vette looks so smooth. That Z/28 looks really stiff...like a race car.

G200 Pilot 09-07-2013 03:34 PM

Oh, but YES!! :thumbup:

I noticed that as well. I love the Z2/8 exhaust sound (it's my phone ring tone) but I actually like the C7 exhaust sound better.

Justin Moreno 09-07-2013 04:11 PM

Just me or does the spoiler on the Z look a bit larger than the normal one? Maybe that is the 'extension' Al O. Was referring to in the Leno video?

Or maybe I'm just seeing things...

Bhobbs 09-07-2013 04:24 PM

Wish there was more Z/28 in that video.

I wonder how much longer until we get a lap time.

Yes and yes.

Both cars look great out there but the Z/28 looks like its punishing the track. Hopefully we will see the full version soon. I don't know that they could ever make a Camaro I want more than this one. I'll have to settle for just buying a few parts from it which will still be pretty sweet.

FINALLYSATISFIED 09-07-2013 05:01 PM

Looking forward to the #s.

:happy0180: Yes!

What about a z28 with a supercharger?

Why would they ruin a Z/28 by bolting on a supercharger?
