It may have but it's not released as stated above.

The only times we have any idea of is that the 13 vert is 3ish seconds faster at Sebring than the previous PP coupe.

It 3.5 seconds faster than the 2011 coupe. So ZL1 coupe is 2 seconds cater than the new Shelby convertible.

It looks like the driver could have been a little faster in some of the areas to me.

The car looked a little squishy in some of the turns and transitions. It looked like it could be much faster with stiffer suspension and sticky tires.
The shifting looked really quick.

And it looked like it could be driven harder.

I wonder how the auto would do? I wonder if it would overheat.

But Great vid!

The ZL1 is definitely a true world class car.

Screw stats and speculation, it's the track times like this that show how impressive the car actually is. People like to call the ZL1 a pig, but baby that pig can haul ass.

How does this make any sense at all? How is A ZL1 beating a Z06? Z06 has better acceleration, top end speed, cornering, suspension, its lower, much lighter , etc... Who in was driving the z06.... because the ZL1 should not come close.... The fact that the ZL1 was 20 seconds slower then the Z06 on the ring only proves this point... I'll stick to the Ring as a measuring point
