When I saw the rain, I thought "oh no!!" Did you notice the at the right wiper was lifting and not clearing the rain? Fortunately, the driver's side wiper worked properly.

Pretty freakin' scary that a nearly 4000 lb car momentarily loses contact with the pavement in a couple of spots. Great driving demo, by the way. I guess that's why they make the big bucks

Let me start by saying both are great cars....the Z28 sounds wicked. Hardly a scientific experiment though, and saying one is faster than the other based on this time is not valid. Too many elements that aren't controlled for. Not hating at all...I like and respect all kinds of cars...even Fords!

To try and show some perspective the Z/28 beats the ZL1 in the corners and acceleration. ZL1 does have the top speed. Proof is in the pictures.

Time for a cam and real headers for the Z28 then watch that number come down even more. And no dam rain. Way to go team Camaro

SWEET video!!!

I'd like to see what those tires would do on ZL1. I wonder how many laps the brakes, cooling, and shocks would hold up though. I know it would be at least one GREAT run. It sounds like Z/28 can do this all day though. It's interesting to see the changes in difference in time and where each car has it's advantage. It reminded me of watching GT500 and ZL1 comparisons.

Yeah I agree. I would love to see the ZL1 with the Z/28 wheel & tire combo and see what it would do.

I kinda think Adam Dean pushed the car more to it's limits than Aaron Link. Aaron seemed a little conservative. Either way, that Z/28 is friggin fast. Well done, Chevrolet!

Well, that was just breathtaking. Especially on the Z/28 side at about 6:15 when it started raining. Wipers at 150+mph. Mother of God.

Really nice job with that comparison. It definitely shows the difference in suspension applications/handling versus HP. Thanks!

Talking Z28 VS '14 Corvette Stingray

I'm dying to know how this time will compare VS the '14 Corvette Stingray Z51. Which one will be faster at Nurburgring?

Watch this clip very carefully. Use the timer for the video and markings on the track like signs on the sign and see that at one point the Z28 was 9 seconds ahead. When the rain fall started coming on to the end the Zl1 started gaining ground on the Z28, closed the gap from 9 secs to 3 secs. Had there not been rain the Z28 probably would have been 10 or 11 secs ahead placing it well at the 7:29 min mark.

Definitely the Z28 driver pushed that car harder than the more conservatively driven Zl1. This only means that the ZL1 is more capable placing them in the 7:20+ to 7:30+ min zone. Both great cars either way.
