An official time is not know, however, after some quick editing of the raw footage, it is estimated the car managed a lap time of around 7:40 – slightly slower than the Camaro Z/28 (7:37) but quicker than the Camaro Z32 (7:41).

To refresh your memory, the GT500 comes with a 5.8-litre supercharged V8 producing an almighty 494kW of power and 855Nm of torque. It’s able to crack 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of at least 320km/h.
