Camaro Laps Nurburgring In 8:19!


I just saw this on Jalopnik, the Camaro has apparently been officially timed at the Nurburgring with a time of 8:19! Sure that might not be a Nissan GT-R time, but it's half the Nissan GT-R price.

Shaved off a second huh? Not bad, not bad at all. There's an impressive list of vehicles that this car has beat on that track... including the GXP which was able to put up some very impressive #'s in all other performance categories.

That is 6 seconds faster than a Porsche Cayman S.

Interesting thing is a Cobalt SS did it in 8:22. That little Cobalt is such a badass.

Half?? more like 1/3 for the prices those GT-R are selling for.

The Wiki doesn't state what year M3. I doubt it could beat a new M3.

E46 is the prior generation M3. 2000-2006. The new M3 is not on that list, and I hate to say it but will likely soundly beat the Camaro.

E46 M3 ... so a few models back ... still not bad at all ... 8:19 is NOTHING to be ashamed of for sure !!

Isn't the E92 the latest M3? If so it is on the list and did it in 8:05. With a base price of $57,850 for the M3, I'll take a Camaro SS and a supercharger and keep the change.
