Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1’s 7:19 Nordschleife Record

Chevrolet & Jim Mero have taken the 2012 Corvette ZR1 to a GTR beating 7:19, With the help of the Michelins reborn Pilot Sport Cup Tyres which are the road legal type.

This has been born from some impressive track time and prototype testing by Chevrolet in 2010.

From watching this and noticing the brute power over the clinical handling on the Nissan GTR makes me wonder about transmission power loss in the GTR.

Be nice to see an application of the GTR engine in a purely RWD donor to see if it is just all handling.

The ZR1’s High Performance package is said to feature black cup-style aluminum wheels measuring 19-inches up front and 20-inches in the rear, as well as Michelin PS Cup tires and a six-speed manual transmission.

And will cost around £118k that is £12000 pound a second faster than the Nissan GTR.
