It's a very exciting time for a Zed fan
I agree on most points but I don't think they will be at 10 or 11 psi...maybe 8 or 9? JMVHO

I know they probably are still testing different sounds, Hope they go a little louder instead of quiet like they did on the SS.

I was thinking the same thing. It has a nice deep growl, but no bark. Anyway, it does look good going around the track. It looks way more planted than the SS did.

I don't know that there is a video of a production SS running the 'ring. The 8:20 lap was a pre-production version and the suspension refined before production. I also don't want to throw cold water on the speculation in this thread, but I seriously doubt what we are watching is a finished car. My best GUESS is this is another pre-production version of the Camaro that is on the ring for testing and refinement prior to production.

If and when a higher performance Camaro arrives in a Chevrolet showroom I am confident it will be better in every measurable way to the SS. There is no reason for GM to slap a badge on an SS with a tune for 15 more RWHP and call it a Z28. The Camaro out sells the Mustang and has exceed GM's expectations for sales. Chevrolet RESPECTS thier Camaro customers and the Camaro heritage. They will not disappoint us. They will deliver the goods when they are ready.

Enjoy the video. Enjoy the leaks to the press. They have been leaked for a reason.

The LSA in the CTS-V produces 9 psi of boost already.

Orig (2008) Camaro YouTube on the Ring

Just for comparisons. The commentator mixes up some SS and Z28 heritage, but it is obvious the new Z28 is and ANIMAL compared to the orginal Camaro running the Ring!

In 2008.... the 2010 Camaro ran the ring.... here it is (sorry I dont know how to embed the whole video or I would)

I love it haha, i really want the exhaust note of the Camaro bumped up a notch, the GT and GT500s have awsome exhaust sounds but the Camaro seemed a little muffled by comparison. This sounds amazing though

Sounds OK. Not overly impressed with the tone. Nothing some mufflers can't fix however.

Great find! It's nice to see this video in comparison to the new one. You can see the difference in velocity as the car enters the turns. The new Z is so much flatter and gets back to the gas so much sooner.

Come on guys, you can't go by the sound you hear from a recording like that. They sure didn't have a professional movie sound and film crew doing the filming. So I would just wait before passing any opinions on about the sound unti you can hear it in person. Besides how good is your computer sound system too?

FYI I don't see a need for more boost from factory (although it would be nice ). I am betting it's better planted. Did anyone else notice 6 piston vs. 4 piston on the front . Maybe a slight weight reduction to 3,800 or less and 560hp with it being better planted and even better stopping? Plus much better at putting it to the ground than the competition (yes I am talking about you GT500 guys...no disrespect but it's no secret they are hard to get planted).

The few things I notice are
1) how much more PLANTED the new car is (much less roll)
2) how much DEEPER and powerful the motor sounds
3) how it seems to MAINTAIN VELOCITY in peak TORQUE range

It seems to have the traits you'd want to see in the Best Mixed Martial Arts fighter.... Strength, Speed, Agility, Stamina, and Tightly integrated from head to toe. And, it will be the top street fighter and winner consistently on the pro circuit (road course, nascar, drag). I really don't give a rats... @#** about drifting, but that's about as stylish as "pants on the ground" to me anyway. Sorry if I'm old school LOL.

How do they ship these cars to Germany? By Cargo planes? Certainly not be Sea, since it will take over four weeks. I see so many car manufactures takes cars to Germany for testing.
