Hmmmm, I wonder if the response would be this forgiving if the ZR1 turned out to be a Z06 that was 132 pounds lighter, had 5 extra horses, and was double the Z06's price. Ok theres a little more to the new Spec-V than that but still. http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupes/112_0903_nissan_gt_r_specv_first_drive/brakes_tires_price.html "As we left the track, Mizuno hinted that the least his new charger would do is to better the Corvette ZR1's 7-min/26-sec lap. "That's not hard," he said. "Be ready for a quick time." We are Mizuno-san, you betcha." I think Mr.Mizuno may wish the Viper ACR didn't exist right now.
