GM unveiled the Corvette ZR1 at the Detroit Auto Show this year and the car just recently hit the Nurburgring in Germany to get some track times. Engineers behind the wheel claimed that the ZR1 was able to achieve lap times in the low 7:40s.
According to Edmunds the track was damp and the track times were rough estimates. When GM releases the actual track times for the ZR1, they expect them to be even better. The Nissan GT-R achieved a 7:38 lap time and under the right conditions the ZR1 is expected to beat that.
The Corvette ZR1 is powered a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V8 with 620 horsepower and 595 lb-ft of torque. When the ZR1 hits dealerships later this year expect the prive to be close to $100,000.
