General Motors gave us a wonderful gift this week when they released an in-car video of the lap that the Corvette ZR-1 drove at the Nurburgring. The car got up to 180 mph and managed to lap the ring in 7:26,4. The course is 12.9 miles.
We were happy to hear that the ZR1 was able to beat out the time set by the Z06 – but nothing beats getting to watch it while it succeeds. Jan Magnussen set the record for the Z06 back in 2005 and Jim Mero was able to knock it down by 17 seconds.
