It had 8.6 lower and a rotofab. Mile and a half probably maybe 2?

Gonna have to call the bullsh$t flag on that one.

http://chevroletautostore.com/in-the...rod-unlimited/

1. 720RWHP
2. 8.5 miles
3. 202 MPH

As far as I know this is the fastest that any ZL1 has run yet.

I believe it. 8.5 lower pulley would've mandated a tune so limiter removed. Assuming the injectors to support it....189mph and climbing slowly is believable.

No question the ZR1 is a badass car. I'd love to have one next to my Z but it would add a couple of years towards early retirement....definitely doesn't need to be modded. At 800 hp the PTM would surely be worthless. Enjoy your rocket ship.

^^^ Subtract 100 from that number and that's fastest I've gone. I'm not too proud to admit the power and speed of the car scares the bejesus out of me.

187 mph top speed it was slowly moving after 176, Smooth ride, way better than my Ducati 1098. My dream is to hit 200mph any ideas?

177mph then had to slow down for some slowass doing something like 105mph.
GPS states it was 175. Tried to take a photo of the HUD but well the road was bit to bumpy for that. Only have one while braking, doing 164 (264kmh):

I wonder why somebody told you the ZL1 is limited to 140mph but didn't tell you that all you need is two nuts and a foot to remove it. In case you don't have two nuts, you can substitute a loose screw.
