Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE Nurburgring record
It’s official; the 2018 Chevy ZL1 1LE is the fastest Camaro at the Nurburgring race track. This super car sets a new record at the Green Hell with Nurburgring times of 7:16.00. Now, the Camaro ZL1 ILE cannot be called a muscle car per say because a lot of rework has gone into its suspension setup, construction, and aerodynamics, making the car more of a track day power machine than a standard raw muscle car that is built for smooth line speed blasts.
To demonstrate the performance of the Camaro Nurburgring and to validate that it’s an incredible ride from the stable of Europe; something that the Italians and Japanese should reverence, Chevrolet let lose the track monster at the Green Hell. True to its reputation, the supercar didn’t disappoint on any level. Boasting of Nurburgring lap times production cars of 7:16.00, the Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE has taken over the definition of the fastest Camaro at the Green Hell. Suffice to mention that this lap record is about 13 seconds faster than the Chevy Camaro ZL1.
How does Camaro ZL1 1LE becomes the Faster Supercar?
This lap time record has positioned the Chevrolet ZL1 1LE at the 14th place on the Nurburgring Top 100 Leaderboard while the ZL1 occupies the 36th spot. In-between these two cars are the likes of the Ferrari 488 GTB, Nissan GT-R, Porches, McLaren MP4-12C, and of course, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. It’s interesting to see the Camaro ZL1 1LE Nurburgring time record at the German track, considering that its 650hp L4 supercharged V8 power plant is basically the same with the one featured in the standard ZL1.
For a start, the aero-kit is not meant for the outstanding look of the ZL1 1LE alone. From its huge rear wing to the powerful front dive planes, everything has been designed to create a down-force that is strong enough to sustain the car on the road while the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R summer tires make up for the rest. The Camaro ZL1 1LE’s multimatic DSSV suspension is highly superior when compared to the Magnetic Ride Control setting in the regular ZL1, making it a great feature for its role of a track-day super car. It’s important to mention that the ZL1 1LE is also lighter than its ZL1 sibling by some 27kg.
