It’s not every day we get to listen to two people converse in German as they drive a couple of sinister-looking black Chevy products – a Corvette C8 and a Camaro SS.
But that’s the case with this YouTube video just posted by Daniel Abt, a famous race car driver who also vlogs about European high-performance cars normally but today enjoyed a trip across the Big Pond to try out some American muscle with Jacqueline from Geigercars.
As you might expect, Big Brother makes quick work of his Little Brother in a series of runs, including the first when Daniel embarrassingly forgets to put the Camaro in Drive and is left sitting at the starting line.
In the second run, Jacqueline roars to a big advantage with a 0-100 kmh time of 4.18 seconds, nearly a second ahead of the Camaro’s time of 5.10.
The two drivers switch rides for the third run, and proving that it’s the car and not the person behind the wheel, Daniel takes the win in the C8 this time, with a 0-100 time of 4.06 seconds to 5.46 for the Camaro.
Lastly, they do a “for fun” rolling run with the removable roof panel out in the C8 and the convertible roof down on the Camaro, with the same results.
Overall, the performance of the new mid-engine Stingray was good enough to move into seventh place overall on Daniel’s all-time high-performance chart with its 0-100 kmh best time of 4.06 seconds, 100-200 kmh time of 9.63, quarter-mile run of 12.09, and 800 meter time of 18.92.
Of course, that was far off the pace of the all-time #1 car – a Porsche GT2 RS with a time of 3.16 seconds from 0-100, 5.32 from 100 to 200, 10.55 in the quarter-mile, and 16.25 for 800 meters.
The Camaro’s times, by the way, was good for #12 on the list.
