Here’s something refreshing: a Nürburgring lap video not claiming a record that’ll tear the internet forums to shreds.

It’s a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, and it has lapped the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 16.04 seconds. That does make it the fastest Camaro to lap the ‘Ring, but it claims nothing that’s likely to be contentious. Phew.

For some context, though, that places this 650hp, rear-driven muscle car in some fine company. It’s 1.4 seconds slower than the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition, but nearly 2.0 seconds quicker than the old Porsche 911 GT2 RS. We imagine the new GT2 RS will have something to say about that. The 1LE is over 13 seconds quicker than the standard ZL1 Chevy took round the 'Ring last year.

But enough words. You want to see the Camaro in action. Click the video above and enjoy it in full, safe in the knowledge there won’t be an exchange of angry comments below. Probably…
