wow...what a lap. for me the most remarkable characteristic of the Zl1 is its ability to put every one of its 580 horses, to the ground. just look how effortless he comes out of the corners! so smooth and stable for the matter too. mrc+ptm+launch control=CAMARO HEAVEN

Not to be a 'spy' but there are a lot of level headed Ford guys who are very impressed with the time that car put up.

(sure, there are some nay sayers, and other people who are just ignorant)

But that overweight son of a bitch nailed that course.

I commend *again* GM's evil efforts to create that car.

So yes, it's very possible for the ZL1 to be faster than the Z06.
And as for everything else? Not dogging the ZL1 but this almost is baffling. There is about a 1000 pound difference in weight alone. Power to weight, acceleration, gearing? Carbon ceramic brakes, Sport cups on the Z06 also.

Also, I just watched the video...

I've decided I need to go to a road course *preferably one with far off walls like at VIR* just to play in my '99.

DAMN that looked fun!

yeah at some point bias has to lend way to reality. that time is fast period. that time could be in a hoda civic or some car I hate and I would have to tip my hat to the speed.

this is all win win. the 2013 gt500 will be the baddest mustang ever and the 2012 ZL-1 will be the badest camaro ever. If budget permited I would rock both in my stable ha ha.

Wow, this car just made the next season of UK top gear I'm sure! Now those guys are really going to wanna get there hands on one. They are huge fans of the corvette so I can't image they would have any hesitation about this car now hehe. Some people are actually going to drive this car to work everyday. I cant image...
