Thanks to YouTube user BaylorCamaro, you can now watch the raved about Camaro Z/28, and its supercharged counterpart, the ZL1, lap the Nürburgring side by side. As you may know, the Z/28 posted a lap time of 7:37.4, making it noticeably faster than the ZL1, which clocked in at 7:41.2.
It’s easy to see where the z/28 shaves off time over the ZL1 right from the get-go, despite the latter being more powerful. Through some of the turns, the Z/28 is 10 mph faster and at one point, through the tighter bits of the track, the z/28 is nearly 10 seconds ahead. What’s also interesting is just how much faster the ZL1 was on the Ring’s mile plus long straight, reaching 173 mph, 13 mph more than the Z/28.
Scroll below to see how the track focused Z/28 and the car that was once to be called Z/28 compare on Germany’s most demanding racetrack. To note, the Z/28 is the larger video of the two.
