2013 Shelby GT500 Going 0-4 Against Camaro ZL1 – Der Untergang Style

I found a must-see video for all of my avid Chevrolet fans with a good sense of humor. For awhile now, numerous versions of the famous Hitler melt-down scene from Der Untergang, a 2004 German movie chronicling the last days of Hitler’s reign during WWII.

Until this morning, I had only scene the version where Hitler gets banned from X-Box Live. On Monday, GMAuthority.com posted a new version where Hitler loses it after learning that Motor Trend, Automobile, Edmunds and Car and Driver chose the Camaro ZL1 over the 2013 Shelby GT500. It’s classic, and I just had to share it with you to hopefully start your weekend off right.

Fair warning… there is a little bit of fowl language in the subtitles. Happy Friday, Dallas Ft Worth Chevrolet fans.

A First Look at the 2012 Camaro from Chevrolet Engineers

I have a Friday treat for all my Camaro lovers in the Dallas Ft Worth area – an inside look at the engineering behind the 2012 Camaro ZL1 from none other than the Chevrolet engineers themselves! With more than 100 development hours spent in the wind tunnel, the ZL1 is the first vehicle in General Motors history to boast neutral or negative lift. Excited yet?

In October, we saw just how fast this little beauty is as it lapped the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife course in 7:41.27 minutes. For those of you unfamiliar with Nordschleife, all you need to know is that the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Lamborghini Murcielago LP640,  Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the Ferrari 430 Scuderia have all been timed at around seven minutes and forty seconds at this German track. In case you missed the video of the ZL1’s 7:41 time, you can watch it here.

The 2012 Camaro ZL1 is expected to hit the dealerships this spring and will have two wheel options: a five-spoke and a 10-spoke design and will be available in nine different colors. Both the manual and automatic versions will host a six-speed manual gearbox and will also come with the same four-pack console gauges as the SS model with a boost gauge now thrown into the mix. Stay tuned for more updates from your Classic Chevrolet dealership, Dallas Ft Worth Chevy lovers. In the meantime, enjoy a video from the Chevrolet engineers. Happy Friday!
