Default Camaro ZL1 1LE fastest GM car ever made (production)

This was an old, but interesting quick article.

The Camaro ZL1 1LE Might Be The Fastest Car General Motors Has Ever Made... - GM Inside News

Quote:
Team Camaro just went ballistic. Literally.

With ride and handling engineer Bill Wise at the wheel, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE ate the 12.9-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife for breakfast, devouring the Teutonic track in an absurd 7:16.04, making it the fastest production Camaro, ever.

It might even be the fastest piece of metal GM has ever made for public consumption.

To put the Camaro’s time in context, the Corvette ZR1 officially looped the Green Hell 3.6 seconds slower than the 1LE; a brand new Ferrari 488 GTB is 5.6 seconds behind; while the Formula 1 derived Enzo looks like a hot mess showing up 9.1 seconds after the land rocket from Lansing.

Rumor has it that Wise actually turned in a hand-timed 7:13.xx, but it will remain unofficial.

That’s like, super, stupid fast.


“With chassis adjustability unlike any vehicle in its peer group, the Camaro ZL1 1LE challenges supercars from around the world regardless of cost, configuration or propulsion system,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, in a statement.

“To make up more than a second per mile on the Nordschleife compared to the ZL1 automatic is a dramatic improvement and speaks to the 1LE’s enhanced track features.”

Thanks to a ridiculous kit list the 1LE’d ZL1 has propelled the Camaro into the realm of dream cars.

GM’s heavy hitting 650-horsepower supercharged LT4 V8 is aided and abetted by a fully adjustable set of Multimatic DSSV dampers, a bigly front splitter, sweet dive planes, a carbon fiber rear wing, and a specially made batch of Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R rubbers.

According to Chevrolet, the lap was set on the car’s production tires, unlike the Lamborghini Huracan Performante’s 6:52.01 Nürburgring lap which was controversially set earlier this year, using what were effectively cut slicks.

The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE arrives this summer with a $69,995 price tag, including destination.
