Z/28 Car and Driver Lightning Lap Results!

Lap Time: 2:50.9

I have to admit I'm stunned. Having tracked my Z/28, I realize it's a very quick car -- but this is amazing. Talk about punching above your weight...

That's awesome the Z/28 almost got the Viper and GTR also.

The BMW M4 ran a 3:00 lap. The 1LE ran a 2:58 last year!

They did a lot of changes to the track so comparisons might be skewed.

The track was repaved so shouldn't the results from this year be faster than if they ran the old track?

That's amazing. And this is considered a high speed track. If it had the same power to weight as the GTR, Ferrari, Viper, Porsche Turbo and Corvette it'd really embarrass them.

In my book a tenth is nonexistent. Great job!

Comparing this group the Z/28 is not out-of-line weight wise. Reading their thoughts on the C7 I can't wait to see how the C7 Z06 does.

Don't you people understand? There is no reason to own a Z/28, it's always a no-brainer- choose the Corvette! Everyone knows this. Besides, all those cars would have beat the Z/28 if they had the same tires the Z does! The tires are the only thing that matters! Z/28 is an overpriced piece of crap. Sheesh

/sarc

F*ckin' aye is my real opinion. Suck on it haters. GM engineers- I hope you guys are smoking cigars and drinking fine whiskey right now.

Consider this: Of the Top 11 cars tested, "Peak Speed" for the Z/28 was the 2nd Slowest, yet it clicked off a Top 5 Time!

That, folks, is very impressive...at ANY price!

[Number 4, at 4+ TIMES the price, had not-yet-ready-for-primetime tires, and beat the ZEE by a 1/10, or...]

On the other hand the Viper with its power to weight should have performed much much better. They better get to work on that chassis.

I'm more impressed with the C7 than the Z/28 after seeing that. Look at the peak speeds. Hell they don't need a 650hp vette to win. Just the fancy brakes and tires off the Z/28.

The Z06 is going to rip the hell out of VIR. Can't wait to see its time...

Don't get too excited. Not sure of any racing league that races only one lap.

They all raced one lap, even playing field. I think the Continental sports cup challenge confirms it's multi lap capability. They are in first place!

And that's all I'm saying. The vette's time is the one that impressed me the most here. I would expect not less from the Z/28. After all, that was the entire reason building it.

Does anyone know if this is the first time a Camaro has beaten a Vette in this type of comparison?
