Video: Corvette ZR1 Sets New Nurburgring Lap Record

Chevrolet just released this video of the 2012 Corvette ZR1 lapping the Nurburgring in 7:19.63. That’s six seconds faster than the record set by the previous ZR1 in 2008, and shows the real effect of all the upgrades and tweaks that GM engineers have made to the car, namely the new Michelin Pilot Sport tires that play a major part in the car’s amazing performance. That lap record is just astonishing, considering that the car is factory-standard, and you can buy it aorund $100K. Almost everything else capable of that time is either a purpose-built track car, or costs at least twice as much.
