The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has set a blistering lap time of 7:37.47 in damp conditions at the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit.

The high-performance American muscle car completed the lap of the 20.8km circuit through Germany's Eifel mountains in a time that puts it ahead of supercars like the Ferrari 458 Italia (7:38), 991 Porsche 911 Carrera S (7:37.9) and Lexus LFA (7:38.85).

To date, only the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the SRT Viper have set faster times for American cars at the infamous track.
