    That is impressive, given the ZR1 took down the Viper when it came out.

    This gives you an idea who is king.. Take into account the 918 and the ACR have full race spec diffusers and wings, and aero packages at C7-R levels, This also gives you a perspective of just how insane this new grandsport is, though , it still does not have the proper Z06 motor.. 7.0 liter 8000 RPM...




    This car will take down anything short of the 918

    This really should have been the Z51 I think. Also, I wonder if the Camaro SS 1LE will hang with the ZL1.

    Al Oppenheisser has come out and said, its Camaro Vs. Everyone. So you bet, he will make the best track cars he can, Corvette V series or non... Just look at poor Porsche 918, GT3 and Mercedes AMG GT.

    I am optimistic for the Ford GT though.

    Nope, the LT4 equipped one. Just like the GS Vette to ZR1 the 1LE will be just a half measure behind what the ZL1 gives you handling wise. Atleast on paper.

    I noticed that too, the last time I watched a race over there, still, when Chevrolet's show up, you better shut up and lay down your lap.

    Thanks for binging that point up. Clearly makes a huge difference.

    Fun fact: C/D just got a bone stock Camaro SS to trap at 118 mph. That's right, an entry level V8 pony car that starts only a few grand above the industry ATP is running trap times that were nearly unheard off 20 years ago. Amazing times.
