VIDEO: 2012 Corvette ZR1 Takes on Nurburgring

Corvette ZR1 Takes Nurburgring Video

The Chevrolet Corvette returns to the famed German track – the Nurburgring – to test the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 hits the quarter mile in 11.5 sec and goes from 0–60 in 3.5 seconds.

Chevy lists the top speed as 205 mph (versus 198 for the Z06), and if you watch the YouTube video you can see he hits 182 mph on the long straight before the finish line, with a smoking lap time of 7:19.63. That means the 2012 ZR1 eclipsed the time set in 2008 by more than six seconds.
