CORVETTE ZR1 IS FASTER THAN NISSAN GT-R AFTER ALL?’s Good Car Guy was one of many who reported on the approximate laptime of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 back in early May. It was known by then that Nissan’s remarkable GT-R could loop the Nurburgring in 7:29. Unfortunately for ‘Vette engineers, their second digit was a 3. Uh-oh.

Hadn’t the chief engineer suggested that his baby, the 638bhp ZR1, would outlap any production car on any track? Was this embarrassing; or purely just another underestimator of the Nissan GT-R? 
Neither. Now that the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has had a proper lap around the Nurburgring, General Motors can reveal its might. 
7:26.4 sounds niiice. We await the Nissan GT-R Spec V to watch the 7:26.4 time fall by the wayside.
