Chevy wants to Make Sure you Know that the Camaro ZL1 was Honed on the Nürburgring

While we can understand General Motor’s fixation with the Nürburgring, we’re getting the slight impression that the Detroit automaker may be overdoing it when it comes to promoting its cars.

After a ton of Nürburgring-related films on the Cadillac ATS and following the official video of the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 lapping the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 41.27 seconds, GM has published the fifth installment of its ZL1 video series that gives us yet another insight on how its engineers developed the pony car on the German race track.

Perhaps the most interesting part in this latest clip is when one of GM’s testers admits to playing Forza on Xbox to hone his driving skills.

“Every night I am on my Xbox playing Forza, just driving the track [the Nürburgring]. They are so accurate now, they got the graffiti on the track and literally, I mean, it really helps”.
