Nah that's a test track. Looks like the same one the first official camaro pictures came from.

I don't think the autobahn has banked corners though. It would be awesome if they did but at the same time I don't know why a Semi would be on a GM test track.

That is hauling @ss on the video.

There has to be some very proud designers and engineers at GM.

Thanks to Chevrolet for making such a wonderful car.

The ZR1 is impressive for a 6.2L but what if it was the 7.0L ..... this car would int just compete with GT-R it would eat it for lunch

If you watch closely, the read-out, which I am sure is VERY accurate for these tests, shows 207!!!!

That is Carrera GT territory...and a pulley change away from an Enzo!
