Those that say yes are assumed to be “gold diggers” as they think the guy has some deep pockets. But put that same guy next to a beat up Honda Accord and he gets rejected every time.

American Muscle is on full display in this video Jalopnik called “the drag race America demanded.” That is certainly true for Corvette fans who saw what happened when a Corvette Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package went up against a Viper TA in seven different roll races and lost.

Corvette Enthusiasts 'Do the Math' to Calculate the Corvette Z06 Nurburgring Time

One of the modern validation points for benchmarking performance among sports car fans has become the car’s ability to put down a fast lap around the 12.9 mile Nurburgring in Germany. The Corvette Z06 has been there two years in row and in each occasion, the ability to lay down a complete timed lap was thwarted by the weather.

During a recent Question and Answer session hosted by Jalopnik with Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, Tadge said they would only make public a fast lap that was complete and captured on video as opposed to offering a pieced-together “segmented time” which is what he says was all they have due to the weather. Of course, crashing the Z06 on the ‘Ring doesn’t help either.

Tadge said the Corvette Z06′s lap time at VIR’s Grand Course was 2:41.3, beating the C6 ZR1 by 4.3 seconds and then he threw down the challenge about the Nurburgring time which has been accepted by several members of the Corvette Forum – Do the Math!
