Wow!!! Looking at those on the list... how many are built by GM and I will say it again.. I don't care what U think of General Motors, they have the absolute best automotive engineering on the planet. No other manufacturer does as much sheer performance RIGHT, and still can be driven as a daily driver with no real thoughts of having to keep a Tow truck driver on speed dial.
Look in the first four columns of shortest times.. GM has 16 vehicles. The closest to them is all purpose built Sports car having Porsche with 13.
Cadillac... I said CADILLAC.. makes an appearance 3 times before U see one of the "World's Ultimate Driving Machines," Car and Driver's baby.. show up.

So the CTS-V is the fastest sedan they have ever had on the Lightning run? Pretty impressive!
C7 Z06 did a 2:44.6 at the Lightning Lap... They ran 15+ laps in 100 degrees no heatsoak
2016 CTS-V 2:56.8 which is the FASTEST 4 Door to ever run the LL
2016 ATS-V Coupe 2:59.2
2016 ATS-V Sedan 2:59.8
But ....but ...but ???????
Lets make a list of all the next set of ( negative to GM - nice for whomever ).... talking points.
1. ) Ford has production constraints.
"From tech stocks to high gas prices, Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression — and they're about to do it again."
"The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money."
"If America is circling the drain, Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain — " Matt Taibbi
That 2013 time posted for the 1LE continues to be impressive by today's standards....still smacks around the 2015 GT.
Damn the CTS V is fast!
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
Makes you wonder how much quicker a theoretical mid-engined Vette might be. Keep in mind the current car is already front mid-engined and they seem to keep finding ways to get more and more power to the ground. Maybe a lightweight AWD system would be a better path?
Very impressive engineering! The Vette is bad arse
Please keep in mind that in 2014 the track was replaced and the track supposedly is 1.5 to 2 seconds faster ..
Still the gm showing is dam impressive. I'm sure tire technology has advanced quite a bit as well over the years.
The c7 z06 destroys the competition even in 100 degree heat.
The CTS-V is the fastest sedan tested so far, but it would be interesting what a Porsche Panamera would do in caparison.
