[VIDEO] 2019 Corvette ZR1s at the Nurburgring


I got all excited when I found a new video uploaded yesterday from a known “car watcher” of the 2019 Corvette ZR1s testing at the Nurburgring. But about halfway through it, I saw a familiar segment showing White ZR1 in front of that same bright green Porsche 991.2 GT3RS that broke the internet last month with a ‘ring time of 6 minutes 56 seconds.

So yeah, this video was probably taken last month during the same “Industry Pool” days when it was reported the ZR1 was running an unofficial lap time of 7 minutes and 12 seconds during the tests.

Still, there was hardly any video available from last month’s testing so I will share it anyways because as of today, we still don’t know whether or not Chevy had the oppotunity to lay down a flying lap at the Nurburgring.

There were two ZR1s testing during this pool day at the Nurburgring, a Torch Red Coupe and an Arctic White Coupe. Both are equipped with the high-wing ZTK Performance Package and both have the zany-looking “Laguna Pipes” on the exhaust to direct sound away from the track’s decibel monitors.

Following that testing session last month where the ZR1 was widely panned for a “disappointing time”, this video backs up seems to back up our claims that the ZR1s were not going all-out for a fast lap when the 7m12s time was reported.

And I think that’s the key take-away from this. If the car ran a 7m12s in the manner that we see in the video, I can’t wait to read about the “remarkable improvement” when the Corvette Team shares the actual flying lap time.
