If there was any doubt before, its official: The new Z06 is going to be the performance buy of the century. 7:43 at the Ring fully stock down to the tire. Despite what the post will say this is NOT some kind of S/C test mule.

Bastard, you made me bust out photoshop and turn on the ruler/grid to check.
He's actually not as short as he looks. He's semi-sitting on the Z06 (butthead) and the roofline is on it is just at 4'.

One thing is for sure is that he has some gigantic balls though. I can't even begin to imagine how fast that Vette must have been going when it went completely airborn like that!
I pee my pants going that fast in GT4!

True, but you can buy 20 z06s for the cost of just a couple of those.

And regarding the M3/5 at least, sure they are teh sechs, but by no stretch of the imagination are they competitors with purpose-built supercars like the Ford GT and new Z06. More like hot-rodded luxo-cars. I'm more worried about the Japanese manf's new supercars, but it looks like they're going to be late to the party.

I'm gonna go play GT4 or PGR2 and see if I can even run close to that time in a video game...very impressive in real life.


Like was said before, that guy has some serious balls!

Supposedly completely stock 505hp aaaand street tires... but the Z06 is all a bunch of aluminum, magnesium, and carbon fiber now and even though its 7.0 liters displacement, the engine is no bigger than an LS2 and slightly lighter (bastages heeheh).

The NSX-R did it in 7:57 with only 290hp 230 ft-lb i bet the corvette is fast in straights but not as fast in the truns as GT3 RS.

Because they spent a lot of time and money on scraping off every gram of weight instead (they got the NSX down to 2800lbs if I recall). No matter how you slice it, thats still considerably slower regardless of the excuse. Now the next gen rumors sound promising as it doesn't appear they are going to voluntarily restrict their output anymore (nice healthy V10 baby) and it can finally get an updated chassis. *nods*


And regarding straight line vs cornering or what not... cmon... if you can get a really fast time on a twisty curvy elevation changing mixed up brutal track like the Ring of all places, you're car is freakin well rounded. Period!
