[VIDEO] 2011 Corvette ZR1 Lap Time on Top Gear USA

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.
