Computational fluid dynamics, aero coefficients - almost sounds like rocket science, right? Watch how engineers spent more than 100 hours in the wind tunnel with the Camaro ZL1, improving downforce, handling and ultimately track times for the Camaro ZL1. http://spr.ly/ZL1
2012 Camaro ZL1 laps Nürburgring in 7:41:27
GM's North American president, Mark Reuss, has confirmed a
Nürburgring-Nordschleife lap time of 7 minutes and 41.27 seconds for the
2012 Camaro ZL1.
That time on the full-length, 20.832 km (12.944 miles), of the
Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit beats out such track performers as the
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the BMW M3 GTS - putting the ZL1 in solid
supercar territory. (Most lap times are measured on the 20.6 km stretch of
the track, stopping 200 meters short of the end.)
The test, though, was conducted by GM and not independently. The time was
set by GM's own test driver Aaron Link.
