I may have to eat crow on this one and tip my hat to Mr. Settlemire. Great job so far GM, now let's see some 1/4 mile times!

The Viper just just the record at 7:12 last month. A couple weeks before that the LFA set it at I think 7:14.

These are real questions I honestly dont know.
The ZR1 gears are closer than the Z06 or ZL1. The ZR1 6 gear redlines at 215 mph. But if you watch the video he decided to stay at the top of 5th at about 6400-6500 rpm if I remember correctly, not shifting to 6 gear. I don't blame him cause the ride was not exactly smooth, I wouldn't want to go faster either without more downforce. It make you wonder what a ZR1 would do with front spliters and a fix rear wing like both the Viper ACR and that special edition LFA had.

Granted, this HW looks like test gear but the pictures make it look like the HW is integrated into the dash.

Are we looking at two different cars here or just the removal of test equipment when the track run started?
Does it really matter at the end of the day? GM isn't going to risk putting up a fake time only to be called out on it later. I'm sure whatever car it was they are sure they can equal or better it in the production version. Next thing you know people will be saying the moon landing was shot in a studio!

Watching the video makes my heart race. I can't imagine what it would be like to drive on that course in real life...

on my bucket list though! I hope I get stationed in Germany sometime soon!

Awesome video. It reminds me of playing Gran Torismo. That is a hard course to drive in the game, a lot of turns and elevation changes,I could imagine how hard it is in real life.:res pekt:

Shifter sure seemed slick and short. Granted, didn't see him in the lower gears. Doesn't the ZL1 come with a short shifter but not the Hurst?

This thread pisses me off, I had pretty much come to grips with the fact that I wasn't going to wind up pursuing the ZL1 and just be satisfied with a nicely modded Pontiac G8 GXP, now I go and watch this and son of a beyotch, sucked right back into the ZL1 vortex...

Congratulations GM, a 4000lb car that took 18 seconds off the their other 4000lb car the CTS V at "hopefully" $15k-$20k less out the door.

Man, if they would bring the next version of the Holden Sedan over here from the Aussies with this kind of power plant, drivetrain, and suspension on this same platform I'd be golden.....

For those who have been there, done that, AND bought the T-shirt, I agree with your exuberance but respectfully suggest we are in an age of muscle car performance beyond the ages that seemingly can only be described in terms of quantum physics. I pinch myself at times to see if I am dreaming or not. We have arrived.

Okay it's fast and handles great in the curves. 172 MPH is hot. I wonder what kind of numbers a stock manual SS would turn with the same driver? Answer? Low 8's. It would be a blast to try it out just for the experience. Of course by the time I got through the run I would have significant body damage and road rash all over my tires and rims. I would excel in the straight away though. :-)
