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."
2011 Shelby GT500 Acceleration 0 - 120 mph
2011 Shelby GT500 SVTPP, VMP 2.59 pulley, JLT carbon fiber intake tube,
colder spark plugs, tune. The tune started as a Bama tune but was tweaked
by Injected Engineering to accommodate upgrades. 0-60 4.6 secs, 0-100 8.7
secs. Private road on farm. Car has not been Dyno'd "yet" but I'm guessing
it's around 540 rwhp 500 torque. I have a few other vids up of the car
stock and tune only...check em out :-)

WINDING ROAD RACING is here, carrying the gear you need to go faster.
Camaro ZL1 Delivers 580 Horsepower and Exclusive Technologies
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1's supercharged 6.2L
engine is SAE-rated at 580 horsepower (432 kW) and 556
lb.-ft. of torque (754 Nm) -- making it the most-powerful production Camaro ever.
The ZL1's outstanding power is complemented by advanced powertrain and
chassis technologies, including exclusive Performance Traction Management
and third-generation Magnetic Ride Control.
"The Camaro ZL1
delivers supercar performance and technology in the sports-car segment,"
said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. "For sheer
power, the ZL1 delivers more horsepower than a Ferrari
458, more torque than an Aston Martin DB9 V12, and a better power-to-weight
ratio than a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS.
"The Camaro ZL1 also
features exclusive chassis and traction technologies," Oppenheiser said,
"to offer the best of all worlds -- including balanced handling for the
track, acceleration for a drag strip, and the comfort of a daily driver."
The most-powerful production Camaro ever
The 2012 Camaro ZL1's
surpasses the advertised power of the legendary 1969 Camaro ZL1's 427 cubic-inch big
block by more than 150 horsepower (112 kW) -- while
meeting modern emissions requirements. And, the new ZL1 is backed by
General Motors' five-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
"The torque is going to make the ZL1 a car you won't want to get out of,"
said John Rydzewski, assistant chief engineer for small block engines. "Not
only will the ZL1 have more power and torque than the competition, we're
making it available with an optional automatic transmission, to appeal to a
wider group of sports car enthusiasts."
The all-aluminum LSA supercharged V-8 is part of GM's legendary small-block
engine family. For a solid foundation, the engine's lower end uses six-bolt
main bearing caps that clamp and lock in the forged steel crankshaft to the
deep-skirt block. Its 1.9L Roots-style blower uses an efficient four-lob
rotor set and compact Intercooler to deliver Boosted air into the high-flow cylinder heads.
For the Camaro ZL1, the
LSA features a unique induction system, with a lower-restriction air
filter, dual inlet paths, and improved airflow through the Supercharger housing. Other changes include a
higher-efficiency SuperchargerIntercooler and electric power steering
system, which consumes less engine power than hydraulic-steering systems.
The ZL1 will be offered with either a six-speed manual or automatic
transmission. The Tremec TR-6060 "MG9" manual features 30 percent more
torque capacity than in the Camaro SS. The higher torque
capacity results from a strengthened output shaft, high-strength rear
housing, and additional roller bearing. The MG9 has also been tuned for
improved shift feel, with a dual-mass flywheel, twin-disc clutch, and
triple synchros for smooth, precise shifts.

Lingenfelter Camaro ZL1 Tops 200 MPH! - Hot Rod Unlimited Episode 7
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, HOT ROD Editor In Chief David
Freiburger drives the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Camaro ZL1 to 202 mph, making it
the first 2012 ZL1 to exceed 200 mph. This very same ZL1 in the exact same
configuration (save for wheels and tires and the rollcage) was also the
first to run 10s in the quarter mile.
The ZL1 Camaros were
first delivered to the public in early April, making
580 hp from their supercharged, 6.2L, LSA engines. Within days of delivery,
Lingenfelter had its ZL1 making 720 hp at 6,500 rpm and 650 lb-ft at 4,650
rpm, both measured at the rear tires. The performance parts are all from
Lingenfelter: CNC-ported cylinder heads, a GT9 camshaft, a ported
Supercharger cover, overdrive blower
pulleys, a cold-air kit, 63-lb/hr fuel
injectors, a voltage Booster for the
fuel pump, a 160-degree thermostat, and
tuning. The entire package, installed, is $11,495. Everything else on this
manual-trans car is stock. The performance testing was done with 109-octane
VP fuel and 15 psi Boost.
On April 18, 2012, the Lingenfelter ZL1 ran 10.79 at 134.36 mph at Muncie
Dragway in Indiana. That was on drag wheels and tires.
On April 30, 2012, the car was delivered to the Continental Tire Proving
Grounds in Uvalde, Texas. Shod with Continental Extreme Contact tires on
the original ZL1 wheels, the Camaro was tested on the
8-1/2-mile oval. The
three-lane surface is like a road rather than a race track, the turns are
not banked, and there are a few elevation changes. During the top-speed
Freiburger pulled 0.4 to 0.5 g at 190-plus mph in the sweeping turns, then
held it down for nearly 40 seconds on the pull from 190 to 202.67 mph
lifting to avoid cresting a small hill at corner entry at 200-plus mph. The
car had not reached terminal velocity. Conditions included a
ambient temperatures in the 90s, and a density altitude of 3,280 feet. The
aerodynamically stock except for some tape over the front
brake-duct openings in an attempt to channel more air through the stock
air-to-water Intercooler, as
the water was reaching temps in the 250s during
prolonged periods of WOT, leading to hot inlet air and reduced power.
Naturally, the comments here will lead to the upcoming ¹13 Ford Mustang
GT500, with claims of 200 mph capability in bone stock trim. A stock Camaro
ZL1 will run 185 mph. Will the GT500 be faster than the Lingenfelter ZL1?
Until someone shows up at the same track on the same day with both cars and
a single driver, no one will know. Meanwhile, we present the first ZL1 to
eclipse the double century mark. See more at Lingenfelter.com and
