Yeah, apparently you're out of the loop when it comes to performance. ZL1 and 1LE Camaros trounce those much more expensive "refined" European sports sedans on the track. This is from Car and Driver's 2013 Lightning Lap trials. This is in order of fastest lap first. Now keep in mind that the Camaro 1LE package is only 420 hp which is more than 100 hp less than the BMW M6, M5, or the either Audi.

That being said, I don't like Camaros, but I respect what GM is doing. It's also nice to put down some whoop ass on snooty tooties who think their Yuurapeein' cars are so freaking almighty.
