Yesterday Nissan announced that the Nissan GT-R completed a lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:29. That announcement may be put to rest sooner than later if GM engineers manage to pull it off. They are hard at work on the 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1. Last week GM released official stats, 638 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque. GM also released a video of the car reaching 205 mph on the track.
Inside Line was lucky enough to get an interview with Tadge Juechter, Corvette’s Chief Engineer where he stated that the Corvette ZR1 will lap the track in about “Seven minutes, twenty-something seconds.” GM has yet to release a 0-60 mph time for the Corvette as well.
Do you think the engineers can pull it off?
