Lingenfelter Camaro ZL1 Hits 202 MPH

The Chevy Camaro ZL1 might look like a brick-shaped American pony car, but it’s actually the most advanced pieced of GM engineering right now.
Like German tuners tuning the 911, the Americans just can’t leave the car alone now that it’s been launched onto the market, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has created a custom ZL1 that caught everybody’s attention straight away.

At the Continental Tire North America proving grounds in Uvalde, Texas, the Lingenfelter ZL1 managed to hit an impressive top speed of 202.67 miles per hours (326.17 km/h).

A week before, the Lingerfelter ZL1 was taken to the Muncie Dragway in Albany, Ind. and ran a quarter mile in 10.79 seconds at 136.36 mph (219.45 km/h).

“The Lingenfelter crew couldn’t be more excited to make history as the first 2012 ZL1 Camaro to exceed 200 mph, and to celebrate this victory on the heels of becoming the first company to run a ZL1 in the 10s,” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “We are very proud to have David drive our car and to share in this accomplishment with HOT ROD magazine, an icon in the world of speed and high-performance vehicles.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
