In order to find inner peace, some prefer solitude or the wilderness. Our ideal spot for meditation and reflection would be the carousel of the Nürburgring. This 210-degree banked corner is the perfect vantage point to watch manufacturers test the limits of their latest models. Before the official reveal of the new Camaro ZL1, heavily disguised prototypes were seen (and heard) attacking the track in order to finalize the suspension tuning.
Now that we know the finer details of the latest F-body, Team Camaro has been spotted sans camo by cvdzijden – Supercar Videos. In a YouTube video uploaded on Sunday, several flavors of the new ZL1 can be seen negotiating the historic track.
A traditional six-speed manual will be the preferred gearbox, but a new ten-speed automatic has been developed with Ford in order to achieve higher fuel economy ratings. If you listen closely, you can hear the different shift points of each car. The supercharged 6.2L LT4 from the Z06 doesn’t care what gear you choose because it makes more than 640 hp and 640 lb-ft of torque. Along with carbon fiber body panels, the 2017 ZL1 might be capable of sending competitors back to the drawing board.
