There appears to be a misconception that American muscle is dead, and that automakers in the States can’t keep up with foreign sports cars. Well, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 put those ideas to rest as it posted a track time of 7:37.40 at Germany’s famed Nürburgring road course.
That notable mark is faster than the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini
Murcielago LP640. What makes that time even more impressive is the fact that the run was conducted on less than ideal track conditions, in which the course was damp and the run was concluded in a downpour.
“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, in a press release. “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.”
