Dash Cam

Does the Shelby GT500 have what it takes to beat the Camaro Z28 and ZL1?

It seems as if every high-performance car out there today has to prove itself by tackling the one and only Nurburgring. Whether or not it sets a new lap record is one thing, but by doing a complete run of the German track allows for said car to be further compared to countless others. Call it a rite of passage, if you will. Something the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has now done, making the trip over to Germany in order to prove itself on one of the most dangerous and challenge circuits in the world.

For the record, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 lapped the ‘Ring in 7:41:27 and the Z/28 came in at 7:37:47. So how did the Shelby GT500 fare? Check out the on board dash cam video to find out.
