In order to see what some of the new modifications, including new tires and a performance traction management system (PTM), to the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will do in a track situation. So they did what all other manufacturers seem to do and sent a ZR1 to Germany to the famed Nürburgring.
Back in 2008 Chevy did some testing at the ‘Ring and ran a 7:26.4 around the 12.9 mile track. With the 2012, they gained a whole 6 seconds and came in with a stout 7:19.63 lap. It sounds like the ZR1 will be even more of an awesome ride than it already was.
Check the video below for a trip in the passenger seat around the 12.9 mile circuit at the Nürburgring.
