    SportAuto Supertest of Corvette ZR1

     

    NBR lap time is 7.38s.

     

    For comparison:

    GT3 Mk2 7.40s

    Scuderia 7.39s

    GT2 7.33s

     

    More details will be available tomorrow Smiley

    Hvs doesn't know how to drive this monster on the Ring.

    I think it is more likely that lack of refinement in the car's setup accounts for the lap time. Power alone is not enough... 


    Re: SportAuto Supertest of Corvette ZR1

    That time seems also very hight to me. A friend of mine already told me he is faster in his well tuned ( full chassis set up) Z06 then with the ZR1 on the Ring. The ZR1 is also too heavy.

    13 sec.s higher than a GM engineer ran. Silly test when driven by humans with different conditions.

    Do you like the car, then own it, if you don't like it then don't own it.  Who really cares about seconds or 10ths of sec.s

     

    Does it really matter 


    Re: SportAuto Supertest of Corvette ZR1

    I agree with you for the most part, anything under 7:45 is very very fast. A car capable of a time like this has limits which exceed the capabilities of all but the most talented pro's. The numbers are interesting strictly for comparison purposes but at this level have no bearing on real world enjoyment. Feel, sound, looks, feedback, these are all more important to me than a few seconds on a 12 mile course. Smiley

    Well, in fact GM intended the Z06 as the "radical" version of the Corvette, while the ZR1 falls into their interpretation of a Gran Turismo. Then of course, there's also the fact that usually German magazines achieve ridiculous (not in a good way) numbers with American sportscars.

    Edit: A vid of Jan Magnussen driving the ZR1 at the Ring:
