I find it interesting that the Srt8 did a faster lap around VIR,I always thought they said it was terrible at the track I think its fair to say all three American muscle cars are pretty equal around the track.

@Apathy my plan was to let the Camaro stock, perhaps I do some bolt on like intake or exhaust in spring next year before the summer season.
DonĀ´t wanna loose warranty because of technical changes.
Something I will do for sure is improving cooling system by adding additional external oil cooler.
Pushed over longer time (typical for Autobahn) the oil temp is getting pretty hot you clearly see that the LS3(or better said the installation setup of the LS3 in the Camaro, like cooling system) is not build from ground up with Autobahn scenario in mind...

That's cool to hear Georg!

Have you considered modifying it?

The LS3 in your camaro takes to basic mods really well. You can make the same power you make at the crank now, but at the WHEELS with a couple bolt-ons, a mild cam, and a tune.

You should check out: LS1tech.com

There is a lot of information about modifying your car there.
The members are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

They have everyone from stock car owners to the quickest names in LS based drag racing.

Lemme know if you check it out!

And despite what people say, there is a certain appeal and awesome factor about a well tuned "muscle" car. Let the "haters" hate.

update...

Camaro SS on the Autobahn is just pure fun :)
north of 160km/h (100mph) the huge displacement and good torque is a big fun factor.

I LOVE IT :)

PS: Nearly all other hate me... hehe

I'm going to see if i can find the numbers for a 2012 camaro because they did a suspension revision and a factory option performance exhaust crank an extra 10 horse out of the motor.

I am totaly happy with my 45th Anni ...

This year they have registered ~500 Camaro in Germany of the 1000sold in Europe...
Thats less than Ferrai sold 458 in Germany in the same time... just to get a idea about the exotic status. According to my dealer I recived the last 45th Anniversary Edition officel sold by a Chevrolet dealer to a customer in Germany.
I know less than 30 people in Germany with a 45th Anniversary Edition model... outside a Camaro owner meeting the chances to see a second Camaro are extrem rare here...to see a second 45th Anni is close to zerro...

This one is my baby..

@Georg

Man you are lucky to have this car in a area where it is not common. When these first came out in the U.S they drew a lot of attention but quickly became "normal" due to the high sales volume.

Must be nice that the wow factor wont wear off in Germany. Due to the limited number its always going to attract attention.

Congrats, I was actually surprised to hear you got one in Germany. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy my Cadillac. Just wish my CTSV was a bit more of a head turner here in the U.S. There are so many regular CTS models on the roads that the V just blends in as a sleeper.

@Krystian
because Camaro are extrem rare here the price drop from new is much lower than that of every other car...
Currently 2 years old Camaro (US imports) drop by ~10,000 in 2 years... on the other hand Audi RS5 drops in 2 years down to 50-55,000Euro from 78,000... now tell me whats smarter from the worth drop perspective view...

@muse
I drove Audi for the last 11 years and owned 2 from new... there is nothing at a Audi/BMW/Mercedes thats twice the money worth. Little bit nicer finished interior for twice the money... no thank you. Currently German car manufactors are able to roob customers with overpriced products, I am sick of it .. I want a fair trade. I work to hard for my money I seek perfromance and joy to drive not a snoobish brand logo to boost my little ***** ego


User avatar

Krystian  5y ago

@Riko And Georg bought Camaro for 40 ground for the year and the value drops to 20 ground...
Premium brands always hold value as opposed to the shoddy American cars.


User avatar

Riko  5y ago

Georg, you made an excellent choice. Love those american monsters. Audi is a rip off. You'll pay 60 ground for your car, and after 6 months, it will be worth 40. Just shows how vastly overpriced these cars are. And I bet you'll have a much bigger smile on your face at the wheel. Congrats!

muse  5y ago

@Georg Audi This not only performance... Thats why Audi it costs a lot more. Nothing is for free. But if you wanted just the coupe with a big engine and nothing more this Camaro is a good choice.


User avatar

Georg  5y ago

@fastestlaps

problem

Camaro 45th Anniverssary LS3 stick cost me 39,950Euro including tax registration and everything...
base price TT-RS 56,7500Euro without any perfromance options...
like DSG, wheels, large brake etc...
looked for one at my dealer fully loaded it parked there for 73,000Euro ... thats far away from perfromance bargain... unfortunatily

I am pretty happy that Chevy offers now the Camaro in Europe, I want performance without getting roobed by a car company...

Currently there is no better deal avaible here...

for that money I get from Audi a striped to metal non option A5 Coupe with 1.8 4banger 170hp without leather and everything... no thanks..


User avatar

Georg  5y ago

dont know the track they just used a former military airfield and set up a track on the given tarmac


User avatar

FastestLaps  5y ago

I think, for guys interested in numbers, Audi TT-RS might be a better choice

0 - 60 in 3.6. It's a baby GT-R :D

AudiRS5  5y ago

Both cars looks nice in video. Georg what track was it?


User avatar

Georg  5y ago

there was a nice compare between the Camaro and a Audi RS5 at the German Turbo magazine driven by Tim Schrick, even the automatic LS99 version wasn´t way of the RS5 (450hp DSG) perfromance for less than half of the price... summary of Tim Schrick..
RS5 for guys looking for numbers
Camaro for guys more interested in the way the numbers are reached.. fine balanced car with no negative behaviour that communicate nicely with the driver about the things that going on between the tarmac and the rubber.

I still progress the Challenger is the best looking of the 3, however, its the worst performer round a track,(Which i could car less about) so id go for that option, although it being around 10k more then the 2.

@soybeanmilk as a Mustang GT 5.0 owner, I disagree. Mere tenths of a second difference at the big track at VIR, easily within lap to lap variations even with the same driver on the same day. On bumpy tracks the Camaro will have an advantage with its independent rear, on smooth tracks the Mustang has lighter weight advantage. Virtually identical performance any way you look at it.


User avatar

soybeanmilk  5y ago

Mustang gt will be much faster than it


User avatar

Viking  5y ago

Definitely an advantage to have a full factory warrantee, and good parts availability. The overall performance of the Camaro SS is virtually identical to the Mustang GT, so it really comes down to which styling you like better. Both look good in my opinion. If I was in Germany, I would go for the Camaro in order to have factory support.


User avatar

Georg  5y ago

The Camaro is since end of 2011 officel sold via Chevy dealer net in Europe..so full factory gurantee and spare part service...
The numbers for Europe are limited to 1000cars/year (europen market ~20million/year) so this is as full euro spec trim a extrem rare car...even more rare as the 45th anniverssary edition model...

Mustang was never my though because only avaible as grey import, no service net, spare parts getting could be a pain in the ass long waiting time and more expansive. As most reviews have shown Mustang is quicker because lighter, Camaro is better handling because of independent rear axle and finaly I like the look of the Camaro much more than the one of the Mustang ..

Challenger was never a thought because to big slow and heavy..

Its crazy to think that these would be considered "exotic" in Germany. A 10 minute drive here in the states and you'll see more than you can count!

@Georg
Good luck with your new car!

On the other hand I agree with FastestLaps. Didn't you consider the Mustang?
http://www.fastestlaps.com/models/ford-mustang-gt-5-0-426-ps
It's only slightly less powerful and weight around 100 kg less.
