[VIDEO] 2014 Corvette Stingray Tracks the Nurburgring

If you were hoping that this was the official Go-Fast lap for the 2014 Corvette Stingray on the Nurburgring, we are sorry to disappoint.

Last year as Chevrolet was working on suspension testing for the European version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, part of that testing took place at Germany’s Nurburgring. Since then, Corvette enthusiasts have been clammoring for video of a fast lap at the ‘ring, but according to Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, that didn’t happen due to inclimate weather which interrupted their one and only opportunity.

Chevrolet Europe posted a tweet on Friday about the 2014 Corvette Stingray undergoing suspension testing on the wet track at the Nurburgring. We looked at the photo and then enlarged it for a better view. Low and behold, there’s a GoPro HD Camera mounted low and behind the driver’s front tire!

We first learned that the Corvette Stingray was running on the Nurburgring late Friday afternoon, but over the weekend we found this second video which shows the Laguna Blue C7 Corvette Stingray on the Nordschleife along with Chevy’s new Camaro Z/28. Enjoy the V8 sound!

Chevrolet to Start Testing the 2014 Corvette Stingray in Europe

We’ve been a follower of ChevroletEurope on Twitter for some time now but really started paying attention earlier this year when the Corvette Stingray made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show. CorvetteEurope recently tweeted that the C7 Corvette was getting ready to start testing in Europe and the good news is that you can go along for the ride.

At the 2012 NCM Bash held last weekend at the National Corvette Museum, GM test driver Jim Mero and engineer Jeff Mosher talked about their last visit to the Nurburgring in 2011 where the 2012 Corvette ZR1 lapped the famous circuit in 7:19.63, beating their previous run in 2008 of 7:26.4 and claiming the unofficial title as the fastest production car on the ‘ring.

It’s not often we dedicate a post about a vehicle that’s not a Corvette, but when we see another Bowtie running the Nordschleife, we take notice. Here is the official video of the new 2012 Camaro ZL1 running the Nurburgring in 7:41.27. Powered by a supercharged 6.2L “LSA” V8 rated at 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque, the new ZL1 was 40 seconds faster than the Camaro SS and 18 seconds faster than the Cadillac CTS-V’s 7:59. Earlier this year, the Corvette ZR1 ran a 7:19.63 while the Z06 clocked in at 7:22.68.
