Click above to watch video after the jump

Video clips of the Corvette ZR1 strutting its stuff on track can be found virtually anywhere on the internet. But that doesn't mean we're tired of seeing the beast in action, particularly if the video happens to feature another new staple of GM's sporty lineup. The latest internet discovery is a grainy, sometimes barely audible, clip of the Chevrolet Camaro SS tackling the twisties with a guest appearance by a jet black ZR1. The video begins with the new muscle making a go on the course all alone. Then later, it appears trailing behind the infamous supercharged 'Vette.

From what we can see, the Camaro's chassis seems to be nicely tuned. The body roll is not substantial and the pony car takes a seat quickly when entering a turn with no floaty oscillations. Hopefully the short but sweet video tease is a direct indication of the production setup. Follow the jump to view things for yourself. Thanks for the tip, Xeyad!

      They wouldn't be sparring unless the supercharger was stuck in bypass in the Vette.

      Why can't Toyota produce any performance cars to compete with these GM products?

      GM has the Vette, Camaro, G8, G8ST, CTS, HHR, Colbolt, etc.., and Toyota has...zzzzzz

      Toyota has given up competing to make good cars and now only wallows in past glory, and on a rep built on past reliability.

      Corporate cynicism at its worst.

      Where is the Supra? the MR2? to compete with the GM products.

        Why can't Toyota make any of these money losing cars anymore? Seriously?

        The Subayota will be out in a few years, I like how they're going to Subaru for the drivetrain! It has been confirmed that Subaru will be getting the more fun version though!!

      Would like to hear the Camaro. Also agree a CTS-V would complete the vid. And a better color on the SS.

      Very nice. This video is like the next hit for a muscle car junkie.
      And who says the American Muscle car is dead?

      Great cars from GM. But unforunately they came to the party late and they are in a bad finacial situation to produce these cars. Sure the Camero looks awesome, but this should have been out in early 2000 to compete with the Stang'. The ZR1 is a great example of American autobobile bargins but its outshined (price for performance) by its less expensive GT-R competitor.

      The CTS-V is interesting, but this isn't considered a "BMW." You can get a used 07 CTS-V for less then 35k. Look up the prices for the BMW 335i (less expensive) and you'll be lucky if you can find a 07 for under 35k.

      If you have the money, go get the car now, because with I hardly doubt they are making any amount of money that looks good to the bean counters (with all the R&D and engineering blood/sweat). GM's financial problems, they'll pull the plug on these great cars in 2010-2011.

      "infamous supercharged 'Vette?" "Infamous" means well-known for bad reasons (Hitler was infamous not famous). You are either one of the many zr1 haterz or did not have the vocab to say something like "now famous," "reputed," "celebrated," etc.
        • 6 Years Ago
        LOL
        • 6 Years Ago
        According the "Three Amigos" "infamous" means more than famous!
      • 6 Years Ago
      look very hard at the hood on the ss, there is something lurking under there that looks yery ZR1ish
      • 6 Years Ago
      Could you make the video a little more quiet please? I can almost hear it.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Camaro? What camaro? All i saw was a vette? ??
      • 6 Years Ago
      Nice, but why do they have the Camaro in boring ole silver? The whole video was quiet, then the last second the ZR1 comes by loud as hell, good thing I had my speakers cranked!
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think if I had a Camaro, I'd paint the lower half of the front fascia black. The front almost seems to carry to much "weight" in a design sense.

      Still - nice to see them in motion. Even slow motion. The Vette just gliiiiiiiiides.
