Nurburgring: 2014 Camaro Z/28 Tops Porsche 911, Carrera S, and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

2014/06/09

It’s time to change the subject and to indulge in a little auto-pr0n.  Apparently, Chevy can still build T cars.

Now this… is what I call a lap dance:

WOW

Chevy can still build T cars.

At 505-horsepower, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 defeats the famed German Nurburgring track – in inclement weather – with a lap time of 7:37.47.

Gimme a minute. The adrenaline’s gotta chill.

And guys, there’s more where that came from.

. . .

Thanks Right Guy Jim! and the BlogFather.

    Well, enjoy it while you can. If it’s up to barry, he’d plow the tracks over for retirement communities and outlaw fossil fuel powered vehicles.

      Well, he just turned Chuck Hagel into a couple gallons of bio-diesel today.

        I am sure some of us would like to literally do the same to him. I have to wonder, why do these idiots fall on their sword. At some point you have to say, WTF? Lying is a poor way of living.

        Wha-? Heck, I’da thought he’d blame Bush. Or global warming?

        it might be cool if Hillary and Barry would blame each other. She owes him that much.

    I appreciate speed and power, but I’ll stick with my ’99 Land Rover Defender. I don’t drive it in the left lane of the Autobahn, but I can drive it just about everywhere else, and today, when I decided to get the dog hair and beach sand out of it, all I had to do was pull out the floor mats and rinse it out with the hose. Doesn’t get much better than that in my book.

      …and it’s blue! Even more, at the Nurb you could just take a short-cut and get away with it. Try that w/ a Ferrari.

        Apples and oranges. You have to use the right tool for the job. I’d rather have a Rubicon. Those Defender 90s had Lucas electricals. http://www.mez.co.uk/lucas.html

        The Z-28 is still a lot of fun and a lot cheaper than a Lambo or Ferrari.

        “Lucas — inventor of the first intermittent wiper.” My face has new (painful) laugh lines!

        So Steven, I hope that machine has a Bosch battery in it.

        Mustang hits 190mph in Steven’s neighborhood.

        Went nowhere…

      • 2014/06/15 15:28

        Fixed it. Cheers!

        Shelby has a model that is supposed to go north of 260. Over 1200HP.

        When I was a wee lad… this guy called John Dodd got his name in the Toronto paper. He’d had this Merlin powered Rolls hybrid out on the Autobahn, and that caused inquiries to RR HQ. Seems some guy in a Porsche got passed one evening… and he’d wanted one of those “new Rolls Royce cars.”

        Now, of course, there’s the YouTube!

      • 2014/06/25 05:09

        how about a Merlin powered Bentley?

    I haven’t had electrical problems with my Defender (It’s a 110, not a 90, but that shouldn’t matter.) but it’s true they like to put a little oil back into the environment every now and then. I think it’s just a propitiation of the petroleum gods.

    • 2014/06/16 22:41

      Holy smokes! Something like that?

    • 2014/06/16 23:04

      I was an auto mechanic in the mid 80’s and I remember if I tried to raise two windows at once in a land rover it would blow a fuse. I wonder if I should have put the slow blow fuse in?

      • 2014/06/17 00:11

        Well no wonder. Rovers aren’t even supposed to have power windows. Next thing you’ll tell me is that you couldn’t use the power rear-view and the vanity mirror together. It’s a ROVER. The English word for Light Tank.

        No, not the models outside the 110. They’ve really become technowonders and god help the owner when all the fancy crap fails. I feel that way about my bike. BMW has all sorts of wonderful technology in their vehicles, but I have to wonder how ownership is in the long run. The reputation they have of being unstoppable was built on the simple airheads that went away in 1995. My bike is one of the last air/oil cooled models. Now everything is liquid cooled. That said, 100K miles on a BMW bike isn’t a lot. On a HD, I’d be time for a rebuild if it hadn’t already. The old beemers could go 300K+ miles between overhauls. Goldwings are the same.
