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..

I don't think it's brushed aluminum (unfortunately), just silver painted plastic. I like it too though.

As far as it being different, it looks pretty much spot on with the ZL1 that debuted in Chicago.

Figure a little more then double that time difference for the longer distance track. Maybe that guy would of got closer to a 7:36 ya never know
The CTS-V was an auto also.
I think Johnny O'Connell si on the payroll and he is even faster than heinricy.

Was it an optical illusion or was the steering wheel really round? Didn't see the flat bottom. Video reference at 12 seconds.

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.

Could not have said better myself... My wife looked at me when she heard of this new car and I couldnt even bring myself to ask for yet another new car after not even having my much faught over SS for 2 years yet....

Oh what to do...

Thanks for the pictures Freddy. They also very clearly the difference in height of the gear shift knob from the first ZL1 debut car in Chicago (Bottom) and the shorter gear shift knob in the Nurburgring test car (top).
