DETROIT -- The 2012 Camaro ZL1 recently recorded a 7:41.27 lap at the Nurburgring. That is nearly 40 seconds quicker than a Camaro SS tested at the legendary German track in 2009. Measuring 12.9 miles (20.8 km) and including some 154 turns, the Nurburgring's Nordschleife ("north loop") is widely considered the world's most-demanding course.
The Camaro ZL1 used for the lap was a production-intent model, with no performance modifications, driven by Camaro Performance Engineer Aaron Link. The Camaro ZL1 recorded its time of 7:41.27 from a flying start.
"The Nurburgring is unlike any track in the world," said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. "Each lap includes fast straights, sweeping off-camber turns, hairpin corners, and elevation changes. In order to do well on the 'Ring, the car has to do everything well -- including acceleration, braking, and lateral grip. Breaking an eight-minute lap in a 2+2 production car is a tremendous accomplishment, and validates that the Camaro ZL1 will truly be track-ready from the showroom."
More than 30 percent of the Camaro SS was re-engineered for the Camaro ZL1, which arrives at U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of 2012.
The Camaro ZL1 features a supercharged 6.2L "LSA" engine SAE-rated at 580 horsepower (432 kW) and 556 lb.-ft. of torque (754 Nm) -- making it the most-powerful production Camaro ever. Power is delivered to the rear wheels by either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
The ZL1's power is complemented by exclusive performance technologies, including the third-generation of Magnetic Ride suspension and Performance Traction Management.
Additional track-ready features standard on the Camaro ZL1 include coolers for the engine, transmission and rear differential, cooling ducts for the Brembo brakes, and a high-performance fuel system delivers fuel to the LSA engine under any performance-driving condition.
"The ZL1's full capability is evident at the Nurburgring," said Link. "One of the best moments is coming through 'Fuchsröhre', or Foxhole. The ZL1 accelerates at an unbelievable rate down through the tunnel of trees, and into a sweeping left-hand corner flat out in fifth gear. You have to have an extremely well-mannered, confidence-inspiring car to take any corner at 160 mph without lifting off the throttle -- and the ZL1 was just brilliant."

Chevrolet Camaro Documentary (National Geographic)
You’re looking at the most powerful open-top Chevrolet in the brand’s
100-year history: the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible.
Powered by the same supercharged 6.2-litre ‘LSA’ V8 engine as the 2013
Camaro ZL1 Coupe, the
Convertible produces 432kW and 754Nm of torque.
While the engine doesn’t quite meet the 485kW/813Nm heights of the 2013
Ford Shelby GT500 Coupe revealed at LA earlier this week, it easily
accounts for some of the most exclusive European soft-top supercars,
including the Porsche 911 turbo S
Cabriolet (390kW/700Nm), Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster (420kW/650Nm) and
the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder (412kW/540Nm).
Chevrolet says the architecture of the fifth-generation Camaro – designed and
engineered in Australia by GM Holden – was developed “from day one”
to accommodate a convertible model, helping it achieve claimed
“coupe-like driving dynamics”.
A range of structural reinforcements have been used throughout the body and
chassis aimed at reducing cowl and steering wheel shake, noise and
vibration, and unwanted body motions that typically plague high-performance
The Camaro ZL1
Convertible’s ‘Magnetic Ride’ suspension adjusts damping levels up to
1000 times per second, which is around one adjustment per inch of vehicle
travel at 100km/h.
The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible – which
is not destined for Australia – goes on sale in the US early next year.
Prices for the Model Year 2013 vehicle are not yet confirmed, but it is
expected to start slightly higher than the Coupe at around US$60,000
