When the Japanese automaker Nissan announced their super car’s single lap record for a production car around the Nurburgring there were quite a few people that weren’t too thrilled to hear it, manufacturers and tuners alike. One of the most unlikely candidates to take on Godzilla’s challenge is the Chevrolet Camaro, but if the boys at East Texas Muscle Cars have anything to say about a certain turbocharged 2010 V6 that just might do the trick.

The car will be initially be prepared as a concept for the 2009 SEMA aftermarket extravaganza before making the trek to the Nordshleif. The 300 HP 29 MPH V6 will be beefed up with a built motor, starting off with a forged crank shaft, a set of high strength rods and pistons as well as a modified remote mount Squire Turbo Systems kit that should boost the GM V6 into the neighborhood of 500 HP. The 2010 Camaro will also be upgraded with a Baer big brake kit, lightweight iForged wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter a set of Pedders coil-overs to round out the ride.

The car will make its world debut at the 2009 SEMA Show and we will keep you posted about the car running a 7:26 around the ’Ring when it happens.

The light weight ZR1 can only manage GT-R level of lap time with 638hp. I fail to see how a near two ton car can do that with 500hp. Even the best tuners can’t have their cars perform to the manufacturers standards where suspension and everything else is taken into account. I’ll believe it when I see it.

What happened to the Pagani Zonda F’s 7.27 or the Viper ACR’s 7.23?
