Watch the 2014 Camaro Z28 Lap the Nurburing Faster than a Porsche 911

American muscle cars: fast in a straight line, but they can’t turn.

Wrong!

For the Doubting Thomas still in need of proof, here it is. Chevrolet has just released a stunning video of the 2014 Camaro Z28 lapping the Nurburgring in an astonishing time of 7:37.47.

True, that’s hardly a record, but its faster than the latest generation Porsche 911 Carrera S. And the Z28 was running with a severe handicap… it did it in the rain (partially at least).

Not impressed that a 500 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque 7.0L V8 can beat up on a 400 hp six-cylinder with the engine disadvantageously placed behind the rear axle? OK, then how about a list of other sports cars it’s faster than: Lamborghini Murcielago, Ferrari F430 Scuderia, 458 Italia, GT3, Lexus LFA.

Watch the impressive feat of engineering (and driving) below.

    In the rain….the lfa at this price point Lexus should go back to the drawing board! Anyone that thinks Americans can’t build world class cars…this should open a few eyes!!!!
