This Camaro is suffering from heavy weight. It has the power but the weight is making it hard to be nimble. You see how nimble the M1 or the black car was that just vanished?


Looks like a Lexus LF-A.

Sounds like both the CTS-V Coupe and Z28 are using the same exhaust system. They both sounded identical at take off. They sound like it's an open exhaust.

+1 but the camaro also slows down to let him go by, you can see him put his turn signal on and let up

and then the gt500 trailing looks like a convertible...WTF...I sure hope the z28 is rigid enough to beat the coupe too

They weren't racing. GM is doing Z28 development on Nurbugring. They pulled over and slowed down into a passing area to let the LFA pass.

I wonder how much all that graffiti on the track hurts traction? You know how easy it is to chirp the tires on painted surfaces.

I was thinking of the same. There is way too much paint there, and it gets much worst when it's wet from rain. Isn't the track sealed and controlled by security? Someone could pour oil or diesel on the track and the cars would be history!

I hope that no one is expecting it to be as nimble as a Lexus LFA......

they are not pushing the Camaro Z28 all the way in that video, more like 8/10s or 9/10s though it seems to corner very flat which is good. It didn't show much push either or dive, a very tight suspension tune it seems to have. Especially considering that its likely pushing 4,000+ pounds around the track.

Looks pretty good and what ever weight problems she might have......I'll simple strip down as much weight that I can.

Is that a Mustang @ 1:52? Not the LFA, the second car that comes into the frame for a split second. It also has the GM checkerboard camo on it...

whatever tire combo they were using sucks. Those tires became extremely noisy under heavy braking, not even to mention spirited cornering. Hopefully they figure out a better tire or rebalance the car so that it doesnt load the tires so much win cornering and braking...that will wear out some tires really fast.
