Chevrolet has released a new teaser video which suggests the company will soon reveal how fast the Camaro ZL1 1LE lapped the Nürburgring.

The clip doesn’t provide any clues but the Camaro ZL1 1LE has been billed as the “most track-capable Camaro ever.”

Based on the Camaro ZL1, the 1LE takes things even further as the car has been equipped with a new aerodynamics package that includes canards, air deflectors, and a carbon fiber rear wing. The model also boasts an adjustable suspension with Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers.

If that wasn’t enough, engineers installed forged aluminum wheels which are equipped with exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires. The model also weighs around 60 pounds (27 kg) less than the Camaro ZL1 thanks a fixed rear seat and thinner rear glass.

Power is provided by a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine which produces 650 hp (484 kW) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which allowed the car to lap General Motor’s Milford Road Course three seconds faster than the standard model.

The Camaro ZL1 1LE costs $69,995 and the model will go on sale this summer.
