The top record time was done in a highly modified Radical SR8 LM Radical SR8 LM at 6:48.28 and only Lamborghini, Porsche, Nissan and Mercedes as main manufacturers have beaten the dodge Viper in the top ten.

7:12.13 – 2010 Dodge Viper ACR
The Dodge Viper may have gone out of production, it is wrong approach to getting the fastest time has put in the top 10 of all production cars have gone round the Nürburgring. There’s a possibility of getting the latest ACR to try for a new record, but until that time, the 2010 edition still rules.

Coming in as the 14th fastest car around the track, the 2017 2017 Camaro ZL1 1LE is not just a pony car, but something to take on supercars of the world and not just in a straight line. The Camaro proves that the days are gone of the American vehicle only good for straight line.
