The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE has become the fastest Camaro to ever lap the Nürburgring’s 20.8 km Nordschleife. The ZL1 1 LE lapped the celebrated German track in only 7:16.04, which is a good 13.56 seconds ahead of the Camaro ZL1 with 10-speed automatic that Chevrolet tested last year.
“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,” says Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “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.”
