2014 Camaro Z28: ON
BOARD Fastest Lap Nurburgring 7:37.40 [Rainy Conditions] - Chevrolet today
revealed a video of the all-new, 2014 Camaro Z/28 lapping Germany's
challenging Nürburgring road course in 7:37.40, a time comparable with
some of the world's most prestigious sports cars.
The Z/28's lap is four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1, and beats published
times for the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
The Z/28's lap was completed on less-than-ideal conditions, with damp
pavement and pouring rain near the end of the run.
"One of the challenges of testing at the 'Ring is that the track is so long
that conditions can change radically in a single lap," said Al Oppenheiser,
Camaro chief engineer.
"Adam Dean, the development driver for Z/28, did a heroic job driving in
deteriorating conditions. Based on telemetry data from our test sessions,
we know the Z/28 can be as much as six seconds faster on a dry track."
The heart of the Z/28 is the 7.0L LS7 engine. The LS7 uses lightweight,
racing-proven, high-performance components, such as titanium intake valves
and connecting rods, CNC-ported aluminum cylinder heads and a forged-steel
crankshaft to help produce an SAE-certified 505 horsepower (376 kW) and 481
lb-ft of torque (652 Nm). Air-conditioning is available, but only as an
A close-ratio six-speed manual transmission is the only transmission
offered and power is distributed to the rear wheels via a limited-slip
differential featuring a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch
packs. The new design enables the driver to apply more power and get
through corners faster, by making
the most of the capability of individual-wheel antilock brake function
during corner entry braking, mid-corner speed and corner-exit traction.
The team spent a week at the Nürburgring as part of the Z/28's
performance-validation regimen, accumulating a total of 10 hours and nearly
1,000 miles on the track. Each lap took less than eight minutes to
complete, despite having to overtake slower traffic at times. These hours
are part of the grueling 24-Hour Test, which simulates a full year's worth
of track use of track days or amateur-level competition at the hands of an
