OMG!!!!!! I....... I mean ........... If I sell............. "sigh"

At that price, you may not see many around. All though, who is willing to sell there left nut and a kid for it too. They will sell, just at how many and how much?


Awsome car. Sounds great.

2013 GT500

The preproduction 2013 GT500 has been seen running the ring since early Jun this year but hasn't posted any official times yet (heard rumors of mid 7:40s but just rumors for now). If they can beat the ZL1 time I'm sure we'll see it in the press soon. Silence on Ford's part will indicate they can't and they will likely try to tweak the new GT500 some more before production (sorry sports fans but I’d expect an increase in price as well). Any way you slice it this type of competition is good for both Camaro and Mustang fans since lessons learned from the ZL1 and GT500 will also lead to improvements in the both the SS and GT (2012 SS suspension has already upgraded based on lessons learned from the ZL1). Long live the pony wars.

A pic of the 2013 GT500 testing on the ring, too bad they couldn't run it and the ZL1 at the same time. I would have paid to see that.

start

He was doing like 65 mph when the timer started. I thought you had to start from a dead stop and start when you get the green light or a gunshot? Anyone know how the timing works?

I wonder if 172 mph is the electronically limited top speed or they disabled the governor for this track to get a better time?

That's the standard rolling start That's how it's pretty much done now. Some of the older times were not run in the manner though...

I don't think it was limited because it was pretty much at redline if you looked at the tach' reading. I've been wondering if it will pull to top speed in 6th, because I'm pretty sure that was fifth, just following the gear changes around the track...

At the green hell, every one start with a rolling start, it's like qualification in
F1. They do a warm up lap and then one attempt (most of the time)
Remember it's almost 8 minutes long x 2 laps, it's very demanding for a time attack.
Notice the start and the finish line are different, the start line is at the end of the chicane and the finish is at the entrance.
It's the slowest part of the circuit, it's realy not an issue.

a BETTER suspension? The ZL1 already has the best suspension that GM's got! That MR Suspension is only on the Corvette ZR1, the Cadilac CTS-V, and now the Camaro ZL1. What kind of suspension would be "better"?

Freaking awesome video, car, and time. im SUPA ESSITED!!!

Well with porsche driving on the stock tires
7:54 Nissan GT-R / September 2008 / Porsche conducted test,[26] stock vehicle with stock tires


Magazine driving
7:43.65 Nissan GT-R /Sascha Bert / November 2010 / Auto Bild Sportscars (11/2010)

See better then the GT-R ... Just depends on who's driving..
Also remember the GT-R comes with alot stickier tires and they have a more race oriented Spec-V that could did some of the nurburgring times

I was sitting in my car watching this and I'm pretty sure there is a brushed metal covering the edges of the vents.

I like it, looks better than the standard vents.

Definitely, but with banked tracks that's easy. We'll have to see if the skidpad numbers are >1G. That would also be pretty freakin' incredible, and I think we have a legitimate shot.

starting MSRP (IMO) $56,000-$57,500... Let's be serious, this is built as the Ultimate Camaro, standard Production... You ain't gonna pick this one up cheap...I'm sure it's gonna be too much for my wallet..I would sure like to own one, soon, hopefully in the near future, I'm hoping..
