This morning you got to see the upcoming Chverolet Camaro Z/28 lap the Nürburgring faster than a Lamborghini. If you thought that shit was cool, wait until you see the MotorWeek crew take on the 2012 Camaro ZL1!


The Z/28 may be the exciting new kid on the block, but the ZL1 is no slouch either. This is the Camaro with the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque.

What can it do? Why, light up the tires and start some fires down at Virginia International Raceway, that's what! It may be a bit heavy but it's still crazy quick. It's even got some slick tech like Magnetic Ride Control, all the better to swat Ford Mustangs down like flies.


Suddenly it feels like 1969 all over again!
