Chevy Teases The ZL1 1LE Nurburgring Lap Time
July 5th, 2017
The Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE had been spotted on the Nurburgring in camouflage for a while when it was thought to be the new Camaro Z/28 and not the ZL1. But now Chevy might be ready to reveal some numbers and just how fast the car can lap the infamous track. Or so we thought.
They posted a video to the official Chevrolet Camaro Facebook page called “Its Time Has Come” and although it’s short on specs, the description says there is more to come. But between the 650-horsepower supercharged V8, the aerodynamics, and the track-ready 10-speed automatic transmission we’re guessing the time is gonna be hard to beat. The real question is…what else did it beat? Let us know what you think its lap is in the comments.
This week on PowerNation Katie features a very unusual take on a Bronco build with painter-builder Chris Ryan from Ryan’s Rod & Kustom. And yes this is a 1977 Bronco coming out of his shop! Chris will talk about the “out of the box” build he did for owner Darren Patton that transformed the Bronco into a roadster powered by a 5 liter Coyote engine with suicide doors, no windows or side frames and capped windows. And of course we’ll talk about the paint with the master with his custom PPG color called “Go Man Go”.
The interior is killer by Hot Rod Interiors and it rolls on 35” BFG KO-2 tires and custom Curtis Speed 17” wheels that mimic the original 15” style hubcaps. Plus we’ve got some real world tech from our shops this week on PowerNation. For more check out www.ryansrodandkustom.com
