Muscle car prototype meets armco at the Green Hell

Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Nurburgring crash

Everyone has bad days at work, even those whose job it is to complete lap after lap of the Nurburgring at full noise in all sorts of exotic machinery.

It appears Chevrolet is readying a new Camaro track special, likely to wear iconic Z/28 badging. The recipe will be familiar: massive sticky rubber, stripped interior, stiff suspension, and judging by the noise in this video, a massive V8 under the bonnet.

Unfortunately, development on this day was interrupted when the driver carried a little too much speed into a left-hander, locking the brakes - it seems ABS calibration is still on the to-do list - and having a heavy impact with the barrier.

Oh well, what is it they say about omelettes and eggs?
