All you haters need to realize. America is the best country on earth. Not only do we make awesome beer, but we win the World Series every year. What have you got to say about that? Nuthin. Occasionally, you dirty foreigners forget this, makin' fancy cars and consumer electronics that challenge our rightful place as #1 at everything. So when that happens, what do we do? We smack all you little people down. Such is the case with the Corvette ZR1 doing the Nurburgring in 7:26.4. In case that wasn't enough, Beercheck was there to remind you who's boss.
I call fake on this whole thing. I read on the internets where a bunch of experts laid the facts out.
"Seriously, the engineers at GM can talk all the shit they want, but American brute force isn't gonna cut it this time. Keep in mind that the Pagani Zonda, which has 650HP and weighs less than the ZR-1 has only 2 seconds over the standard GT-R. As it stands, they need to pull 11 seconds out of their ass."
"I really can't see the ZR1 beating a 7:29. I don't know, maybe i'm being pessimistic."
"Personally, I don't think the Vette will do it. Even if the Vette manages to do it in less than 8 minutes, I think it says a lot more about the driver than the car."
"Goes to show how crap GM are,years at the ring,yet their cars still cant corner."
"why are most GM fans ignorant to technology? THE ZR-1 doesn't stand a hope in hell at beating the GT-R. If the Buggati Veyron didn't come close, what on earth makes you think the Vette will? Wake up Vette Forum fanboi's, it's not going to happen in this life.
AWD will always out perform RWD."
