But again, as far as track performance goes, the NSX-R and Z06 are pretty much even in performance; Z06 a bit faster, NSX a bit quicker in the corners. A good example is the NSX-R's Nurburgring lap time which is 1/10th of a second faster than Chevrolet's CLAIMED best lap time for the Z06. Now, yes, the Viper is a bit faster around a track than the NSX, but only due to being sorely outpowered, the Viper (while it handles very well now) is still a bit slower in the twisty sections. But because the Viper's handling is much better than it used to be, it handles well enough that it wouldn't lose too much distance in the twisty sections, and it gains a lot of distance any time it's accelerating. If you watch an NSX closely around a lap, you'll notice that in the twisty sections it keeps pretty close to its speed on faster parts of the track, that's a sign of good handling. However, because it only has 276hp (although it uses that power exceptionally well) it's not fast enough to keep up in the straights.
