Production Version Corvette ZR1 Shows Off At Nürburgring

Written by tonks on August 12, 2008

Corvette ZR1This year supercars are proving their worth and standard by scoring the best time around the famous Nürburgring. Each one is trying to beat out the other to have the best time around the lap and to prove to enthusiasts that they are the best supercar.

The first one to bring our attention to this new goal was the Nissan GT-R. This car managed to pull a 7:29 lap time – which was impressive. The stat was further thrust into the spotlight when a Corvette engineer promised that Nissan would not hold the record for long. And it didn’t. On June 27th, the Corvette ZR1 ran the ‘Ring in 7:26.4 to take the crown.

While we’ve watched video of the ZR1′s fast lap over and over, we haven’t enjoyed any professoinal images of the ZR1 running the Nürburgring yet, until today. GM has just released some new photos of the production version of the ZR1 making its way around the track.
