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.

You would have been right in sayin m6. Bmw testing next gen m6. It is not a mustang.

EDIT: the car in question pictured below. M6 Vert

Good eye MileMan402!!

See what I get for taking it for granted? LMAO
I did see where you were coming from though, from what I could tell it look a bit like a M6, the grille area was a little blurry to me so had I recognized that I would have been right there with ya.

That M6 reminds me of the 2005 2006 GTO's...
I've never really been a fan of the M6. I like the M3 and the M5 a lot.

Its not a 370z, its the Lexus LFA. And I think it's the M6 cuz the front fascia is different than the gt500 and there is no spoiler like the gt500.

Mmmmmm....Z28 goodness.

That's one of the meanest exhaust notes I've heard come out of a factory car. I hope they keep it that way!!!

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?


That was a Lexus LFA. For $400k plus, it better be more nimble and faster than a Camaro or Toyota just failed miserably.

I did some research on the Nurburgring Track. It seems that the track runs through several different towns and the town's children are allowed to go on to the the track and draw with colored chalk when the cars are not testing of course. I do not know how often this occurs but it does explain all of the fancy drawings on the track.

The Z28 hasn't posted a time, yet...And that's not your Granddaddy's Cadillac.
