2010 Camaro SS - 8:20 at Nurburgring!

DETROIT — You can't launch a car with any aspirations of "performance" and not do your time at Germany's famed Nürburgring racetrack — it's just plain expected these days. So General Motors Corp. certainly wasn't about to shy away from the 'Ring with the sizzling new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. At Monday's official unveiling of the production version of the new-age Camaro, Inside Line chased down a ranking Camaro engineer and asked for the crucial lap time.

Doug Houlihan, GM's chief engineer for global rear-wheel-drive vehicles (the architecture underneath the Camaro, the Pontiac G8 and all that blowsy, big-V8 Holden stuff from Australia, where the platform originates), coughed it right up: A Camaro SS ran the Nürburgring in 8:20.

That's pretty frickin fast.

Nice! I'd like to see how much performance the V6 has.

man that is awesome! The 09 CTS-V is running it in 7:59....there are videos on youtube. only 20sec difference over the what, is it 9 or 12 miles....something like that. and the CTS-V has the supercharged 550 horse milll in it. i am freakin pumped. despite being a little heavy due to its size, seems like this thing can really do it all. Go, stop, and turn - which is good cuz when I get mine, you can be sure I will be doing some track days with it. Mid-Ohio is an awesome course and is only and hour from my house. I cant wait!

Nice work Camaro team!

That's actually fairly impressive considering the BMW M3 (E46) did it in 8:22 and a Porsche Cayman S came in at 8:25, both of which are cars designed for twisty roads. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordsch...test_lap_times)

It's also a full 2 seconds faster than the chevy cobalt which ran a 8:22.

I wouldn't refer to 2 seconds as FULL. Those two cars seem to run neck and neck. Good for Chevy

Anyone have a list of cars and their times at THE RING?
