2010 Chevy Camaro SS Caught On Nurburgring, Stig At The Wheel?

Some say he was once a victim of American "friendly fire." Others say he used to be a GM engineer until Bob Lutz rubbed him the wrong way. But all we know is, he's called "The Stig" — or maybe it's his fat 'merican cousin — and he appears to be taking the new 2010 Chevy Camaro SS out for a 'ring run. Wait, what? That's right, although we knew the 2010 Chevy Camaro had taken to the Nürburgring earlier this week in what we've been told is das SuperSport (or because it's Germany does the "SS" mean something different — SuperAuto Motor und Sport, perhaps?) mode (check out the Brembos), we didn't know they'd be taping an episode of "Gear" at the same time. But how'd the Camaro handle? Well, check out the full and slightly skinny-on-details description from the spy shooters at KGP below the jump.

The Camaro has finally begun to take its first hot laps at the 'Ring. Here are photos of its inaugural lap. Our shooters say that first impressions are that looks impressive in action, and that its suspension looks well buttoned down on some of the 'Ring's challenging stretches.
