Pretty impressive! There were a couple guys on other forums that were saying even the 11/12 Gt500 would be super close, but they obviously aren't giving the car any credit.

Now Im looking forward to the 13 Shelby to run there.

I'm seeing there are more than one course for that track. Unfortunately - a lot of those times I posted didn't really distinguish if there were any differences. The Lightning Lap times were probably the most representative, IMO. Same people, same courses, etc.

Anyone who questions this cars ability REALLY needs to re-think that. The ZL1 is a friggen monster, and its not to be messed with.

This was driven by a GM engineer, most likely. I wonder how it fill fare in the lightning lap when someone who isn't used to it drives it?

ZL1 is going to be the complete package. No doubt about it .. Great time and puts that car in great company!

What the H..... 7/10 off? No way. I apologize for not giving my new car its proper dues. But I am curious....

WHAT WOULD MXO AUTOMATIC A6 do on a course like this? We need some A6 comps. Please!!

Great Video... got up into the high 130's three times with some pretty hard braking after... Sounds great too...
