Diverse Interests pt 6

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 sets lap record at the Nürburgring in Germany.

Not sure how many of you guys are aware of the ZR1 and its development, but it looks as if GM has delivered on its promise to produce a true world class sports car. Supercharged 6.2 liter putting out over 620 hp, with a top speed reported at ~215 mph. The ZR1 did the 'ring in 7:26, beating the previous fast lap of 7:29 set recently by the Nissan GT-R.

Video of the lap.

Keep in mind this is a bone stock, production car, on stock rubber. You too can own one for a mere $102k. Production starts in mid-August. See your local Chevy dealer for details.

The way things are going at the General (and things in general) the ZR1 just may turn out to be the ultimate American performance vehicle...ever.
