ZR1 NEW RECORD TIME at Nurburgring!! Check it out!

112 replies 41 views Edited Jan 8, 2009

Now, maybe I'm old, and maybe I'm a bit slow, but I got this and just HAD to pass it along.  So if you've seen this before, then just ignore the rest...otherwise....................... 

 

For all of the Corvette fans here at GT....the new "Gold Standard" for Nurburgring Nordschlief.................7:26.4 minutes for 13.9 miles of the toughest road course in the world.

 

This will be the new standard for the next year at least.  Check out this run...Driver Jim Mira keeps the ZR1 On the very edge the entire time....and the sound is Awesome. This gives us yet another look at the mighty Nurburgring Track and the best bang-for-the-buck sports car in the world.

Enjoy,

The ACR Viper has beaten the ZR1's time, but they both are still impressive as hell.

 

It would be awesome to see GM make a ZR1-R package or something to compete with it. (Very little interior, front splitter, rear wing, etc.)

The ACR Viper ran 7.22.1 (<-Video) a month later. And yes, it is a Factory Production Model. You can buy it straight from Dodge.

I think the Nissan beat it as well.  And yes, the ACR is a factory vehicle, but only sort of.  And while my ZR1 knowledge isn't where it should be, I know it's running on tires made especially for it, but aren't they run flats?

Yes, the tires on the Corvette could easily be much better.

 

Edit: The Nissan GTR is slower than the ACR and ZR1.

Quit ruining the fun, I'm sure he posted here because most of the people he frequently communicates with surf this forum, NOT racing general.

The ZR-1, GT-R, and Viper (and that is the correct order in which to list those carsSmiley Happy) have all been in GT so it's GT-related, right?
