The latest Z06 and ZR1 Nurburgring times are 7:22.68 and 7:19.63, respectively. Still 7:41.27 for the ZL1 is quite impressive. It's 11 seconds faster than I was expecting.

Of course, the possible downside of all of this, the videos showing all of the technology that the ZL1 has, and the excellent performance numbers that are starting to be released, could be is that Chevrolet is preparing us for a MSRP for the ZL1 that is higher than we'd like it to be.
