According to reports released from Chevrolet, the company’s newest track monster, the Camaro Zl1 1LE was able to lap the Nordschleife in an incredible 7:16.04. That time makes it 13 seconds faster than the regular Camaro ZL1.
Unlike the companies other high performance car, the Z06, which has recently become embattled for over-heating issues and poor track performance, the ZL1 has received nearly universal praise. The 1LE’s amazing lap time will surely boost that image even further. To provide an illustration of just how impressive the cars time was, take into account the level of cars and their respective times which it has beaten.
Nissan GT-R- 7:19.0
Ferrari 488 GTB- 7:21.63
911 GT2 RS- 7:18.00
Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – 7:25.0
Even more impressive is when you consider the cars insane price point. At a starting point of only $69,995 ( avoiding any ridiculous dealer mark-ups anyhow), the ZL1 1LE is an amazing bargain, coming in tens of thousands of dollars cheaper than the next lowest price car mentioned above.
