One of the most highly anticipated American cars to be launched over the next couple of years is the new Camaro Z/28. A team of elite engineers and drivers are currently in Germany testing the muscle/sports car at the Nurburgring, and by the looks of things they still have ways to go before they can sign off the car as ready.
About a minute into the video you are about to watch the Camaro Z/28 prototype, which is being driven round rather enthusiastically, lets go at the back and goes into a spin. The driver manages to correct it, but not in time to avoid hitting the sidewall. After that they wrap the car up and send it back to the workshops, probably to get a new suspension system — one that is different from the one smashed here to pieces. What’s staggering is how the car locks up its wheels prior to the crash. Maybe they forgot to put the ABS fuse in?
The 2018 Camaro Z/28 will be powered by a meaty V8 engine which is estimated at 650 horsepower. With that kind of power you want to be sure you have a chassis under you that can handle the sudden urges that come with it. The engineers suffer through these incidents to make sure you, the customer, won’t have to.
