[VIDEO] Top Speed Corvette Z06 Run on the German Autobahn

Via CorvetteVideos.TV

Want to see a Corvette Z06 running at top speed on the German Autobahn? Of course you do! The Performance Data Recorder shows us that this driver reached speeds of 320 Km/h which translates to about 198 mph! Unlike the USA, the German traffic sees a faster car coming up behind and moves to the right.

The Corvette Z06 looks to be providing an effortless drive and seems quite tame in normal traffic. But then we hear the exhaust open up and another quick sprint unfolds before us.

[VIDEO] Chevrolet Mexico's Human Cannonball vs Corvette Z06

Despite working two years for a Spanish-language radio station as my first job out of college, speaking Spanish was not a skill I was blessed with.

Chevy Aims to Improve the Picture Quality of the Corvette's Performance Data Recorder

One of the most popular options on the 2015 Corvette Stingray and Z06 has to be the new Performance Data Recorder.

The Corvette PDR development was born out of Cosworth’s many years of working with the Corvette Racing Team to supply and support the full suite of motorsport electronics such as data loggers and Pi Toolbox analysis tools.

Discussions between Cosworth and General Motors about taking these racing products to the Chevrolet Corvette road car developed, and it soon became evident there was a tremendous opportunity to be first to market with a fully integrated road going Performance Data Recorder.

Since the PDR became available on 2015 models, feedback from Corvette customers and the media alike has been overwhelmingly positive, and the PDR picked up four best product awards at the CES show.

Hey, Corvette drivers, if you want to race, take it to the track.

Don’t endanger the lives of innocent people trying to prove your manhood on public streets.

Eight people apparently didn’t heed that advice in Harris County, Texas on Friday, March 20, as they were arrested for street racing on the same weekend as a major drag racing event in town, the TX2K.

[VIDEO] Corvette Z06 Captures the Insanely Fast McLaren P1 on PDR

Remember when the tiny college football team went up against the high-and-mighty Division I squad and barely lost – a moral victory of sorts?

This video taken from the Performance Data Recorder of the Z06 serves as an automotive reminder of that very kind of situation.

On paper, pitting a $100,000 Corvette Z06 against a million-dollar McLaren P1 shouldn’t be much of a contest.
