The Nurburgring race showed some surprises in terms of performance such as the result of the V8 Chevrolet Camaro SS of GM which finished the run in 8m20s. Even though it remained behind by almost 1 minute compared with the Corvette ZR1 ( 7m26s) and the Nissan GT-R(7m29s) is still managed to surpass supercars like E36BMW M3 and Porsche 911 GT3. Anyway, this runs helped Camaro’s engineers to identify the best tires, steering and suspensions for the car.

Programmed for the mass market in 2010, all the Camaro models, V6 and V8, will receive the latest stability control system, StabiliTrack. The SS will have instead the same computer controlled active handling system as the Corvette. Camaro SS will also feature a special track mode which can disable, when wanted, the car’s electronic stability and traction control . The manual models will get a special launch control mode.

This thing isn’t the production version anyway.They are "identifying" the best tyres and what not. The old NSX lapped 8seconds flat with only 276hp. Thats impressive, not this.

by the way GM, you should have compared the new camaro to the E92 M3 on its ’ring laptime since both are in the same power level. but i guess you didn’t cos the E92 M3 clearly still has better time than your camaro crap! the M3 has much less torque too at only 295.

so is that time supposed to b impressive? anyway, i bet they used a rolling start again and started the time late just like they did with the ZR1 corvette. and they’re considereing the e36 M3 as a super car? wtf? e36 M3 came out like 15 yrs ago and had only 240hp, the camaro has over 400+. it just goes to tell that GM has such low standards and zero class!
you are pathetic GM!
