    2012 ZR1 - 7:19 Nurburgring Lap - PS-Cups / Safety Gear

    There is laid over describing the new changes but that everything is stock except for the safety gear and they did change the seats I believe. Car now comes with MPSC ZP (runflats) which helped cut down the time.

    WICKED FAST

    That is insane for a production car with this price tag, the driver is pretty good but he did lock the tires up at 4:11. Probably coulda hit a faster time but damn, 7:19 is scary fast around that track.

    7:19 lap (absolutely insane) and the Japanese in the Best Motoring vids couldn't get a good result out of the ZR-1 compared to their cars? Click here to enlarge

    This car is tits. I really see no other choice but to buy one. I mean, for the money is there better? No. 7:19 around nurb with a half decent driver. Put some racing slicks on it and 7 flat? holy $#@!?

    ummmm are you guys crazy? For 1 this guys is driving balls out, yes there is 1 or 2 shifts that are light speed and one brake zone isnt perfect but its the nurburgring! I dont think you can say "half a decent driver". I dont think Chevy was like "lets stick a decent or a half a decent driver in there and release a video to just get a decent time but not the best time".

    Agreed, a half decent driver doesn't get a 7:19.

    Jesus-tapdancing-Christ! That would be a HELL of a good time in the passenger seat. I wonder how those Michelin's looked after that lap.

    hes half decent because he doesnt test every car for a living. A devoted racecar driver only, could probably hit a better time. The guy did good, but i think there was more left on the table.

    He crushed the old record which was like 7:26 I think.
