2015 Corvette Z06 reportedly armed with the 8-Speed Automatic Transmission was spotted testing on the Nurburgring.

We were pretty excited to hear that Chevrolet was testing the Corvette Z06 on the Nurburgring but after the seeing the yellow Corvette Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package had crashed, our hopes were dashed for a flying lap.

But now we know that Chevy took a Laguna Blue Corvette Z06 for testing on the Nurburgring as well, and according to unsubstantiated reports, this one is armed with the Stage 2 aerodynamics package along with the new 8-speed automatic.

We’ll keep checking back with Bridge2Gantry for any more updates.

While the initial photo shows a Laguna Blue Z06 Corvette and the graphic says “Corvette Z06″, the video actually is of a Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe. Take a look at the rear spoiler which seems to have a clear “wicker-bill” like attachment that runs across the center top.

The sighting of the Corvette Stingray at the Nurburgring comes after the news of the 2015 Corvette Z06 testing (and crashing!) at the famous track.

[VIDEO] 2015 Corvette Z06 Spotted Testing at the Nurburgring

There’s just one special place on this earth where all serious manufacturers take their sports cars to be tested and that’s the Nurburgring.

Last year, Corvette Stingray fans were cheated out of the opportunity to see the new C7 run a fast lap due to rainy weather on the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife. But now the “Big Nasty” 2015 Corvette Z06 has been spotted testing on the famous 12.9 mile German track so let’s all say a prayer for clear skies and fast lap times.

[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!

Nurburgring Lap Times, Jim Mero and the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Over the last two weeks we’ve seen a couple videos of the 2014 Corvette Stingray working out on the Nurburgring. One of our posts on Facebook wondered aloud if GM vehicle dynamics engineer and Corvette Track Rat Jim Mero was in Germany. Based on these photos from Chevrolet Europe, we believe the answer is yes.

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!
