As we mentioned over the weekend, the Corvette ZR1 was featured on Top Gear USA Sunday evening that culminated with the Americanized version of the Stig taking the supercharged 638-horsepower sports car on a lap attack of TG USA’s test track. How does the Corvette stack up against the competition? Hit the jump and check it out.
The Corvette ZR1 that was tested was a 2011 model year Corvette that is missing some of the options that are found on the 2012 version, namely the ultimate performance package which features a more aggressive transmission and the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. Give the Stig USA a 2012 Corvette ZR1 and I can see the Chevy easily blowing past the top time set by the Viper ACR.
