Muscle cars, as their name implies, are historically more about muscle than they are about the performance it brings. 0-60 and quarter-mile times, sure, but not lap records on twisting and turning road courses. But Chevy is out to change all that with the latest Camaro Z/28.

The Bowtie brand has just published in-car video footage of the new Z/28 lapping the Nürburgring, and boy did it hustle: the king of Camaros clocked a lap time of 7:37.47, nearly four seconds faster than the ZL1 managed last year.

To put that into larger context, that makes the new Z/28 faster than the latest Porsche 911 Carrera S, faster than the Lexus LFA, faster than the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Lamborghini Murcielago, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and SLS AMG. That also makes the new Camaro Z/28 faster around the Nordschleife than any other American metal this side of a Viper or Vette. Now that's some serious muscle indeed. Check out the video below.
