When it comes to the world of automotive performance, there are all kinds of benchmarks that you can look at to determine which car is best at which aspect of performance. No matter what you are looking for, from turning with precision to doing long and smoky burnouts, there is some sort of test out there that can determine if a car has what it takes to live up to your wants and needs.

Perhaps one of the most closely followed benchmarks is the lap time ability of cars to get around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Some even say that once an automaker attempts to test out the car on the track, they become performance freaks, trying to knock other cars off of the podium at any and all costs to the creature comforts of the car.

This time, we check out the brand-new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 as it hits the ring with the attempt to not only knock off the prior version of itself but also attempt to knock some of the competitors down a peg and prove all of its critics wrong as a bona fide performance machine.

Follow along with the latest and greatest from Chevrolet as they’re up to the challenge to see how exactly the experiment at the ring will go. Check out the video below to see for yourself how exactly to the car ends up performing as it carves up the corners in Germany
