Mero has shared the time for the Corvette ZR1 on the Facebook account of his new business, having retired from General Motors.
Chevrolet has never announced an official Nurburgring Nordschleife lap time for the C7 Corvette ZR1, but we know that the company spent time testing the 755-horsepower supercar on the legendary German road course.
Tons of tire spin, downforce from the wing, may have held back the ZR1 from beating Ford GT on the half-mile.
The ZR1 is the Corvette of Corvette. It has a big, supercharged V8 making tons of horsepower and torque. It’s rear-drive. The eight-speed automatic shifts quick enough to send it down many a quarter-mile. And it’s worth every penny at over $140,000.
Thus, it should be able to demolish nearly all challengers, right? Of course, except for this one instance captured by Brooks Weisblat (a.k.a., YouTube channel DragTimes) in his own 2018 Ford GT during a pair of half-mile drags in Immokalee, Florida.
