After thinking about it, the ZL1 Nurburgring lap time of 7:41.27 is probably even faster than the time my stock 1969 Z28 would run.

Now how much would you pay for a ZL1?

But wait, there's more ...

The mustangs haven't "officially" run at the 'ring. Probably because in the past, they didn't care, it was all about straight line(GT500). The '13 GT500 has been spotted running there and, according to "The Pill", is several seconds faster than the ZL1. I call BS on that one. I don't honestly think any mustang will come close to 7:41

Exactly. Add to it, the '12 z06 was not on that list so I was referring to the entries that were on it.

This performance is coming from a virgin zl1 that's targeted at the $50g range. It could only get better if chevy continues to improve its suspension and offer upscale handling packages to it, similar to the zo6/zr1.

I'm guessing this car had the sport cup tires that drastically lowered the Z06 and ZR1 times. Impressive none the less. Let's seem some 1/4 mile times.

How can you own a Camaro and not be excited about the ZL1?
More importantly, how can you post 6,000 times in 9 months!!!
