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.

He was pushing it. Didn't y'all hear the tires squealling? GM has to lighten them up. HP to weight ratio.

hopefully they do a raised hood or hood scoop similar to the SLP camaro. While the engine is a great thing, style still needs to prevail to include interior upgrades etc etc. Give us some more upgraded opitions.

Oh Toyota failed. For $400K you get C6 Z06 performance and get completely embarrassed by a $110K ZR1.
