To say the 2009 Corvette ZR1 is a fast car, that would be an understatement. But just how fast? Well it looks like the General has taken aim on setting a record time at the Nürburgring. Rumors are swirling of smack-talking engineers claiming the big bad 'Vette can out-pace the Nissan GT-R. Those claims would mean the ZR1 would have to set a time of less than 7:29 around the Nordschleife.

We're sure the ZR1's 638 HP LS9 supercharged V8 will provide all the power needed, but it's all about how that grunt is put to use. After all, the GT-R only has a V6, albeit twin-turbocharged and connected to a sweet AWD system.
