Now I usually don't go for new American cars.
They are usually miles behind their European, Japanese, and even Korean counterparts. They're slow, they lumber along, and with no real handling to speak of. Usually, they're just not good cars. Lately, I must admit that they have been getting better and better, still not Mercedes or Toyota quality, but closer to them then they have been in decades.
A few weeks ago, MotorTrend did a video on the new Chevy Z/28 Camaro, and propped it up against the mighty Nissan GTR, a car nicknamed Godzilla. The amazingly brilliant technical exercise that is the GTR has lapped the Nurburgring in 7:24. This by any standard is blisteringly fast, and not to mention, it goes around corners like a squirrel on acid.
