Corvette Takes to Nurburgring and Posts a 7:19:3 Lap Time

Corvette lovers are not ones to take anything lying down. The Camaro ZL1 posted a 7:29 lap time at Nurburgring. The Corvette Z06 did the same lap in 7:19.3. The difference is most likely accounted for by the fact that the Corvette is 300 lbs lighter than the Camaro.

Key Takeaways:

1. A Corvette took to Nurburgring not to be out done by the Camaro ZL1.

2. The Camaro ZL1 posted a 7:29 lap time. However, it is 300 lbs heavier than the Z06.

3. The Corvette finished with a lap time of 7:19:3.

Quote: "After all, the 'Vette uses the exact same 650-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 as the 'Maro, but weighs about 300 pounds less than the 1LE. Sure, the Camaro is newer, and thus has the benefit of a few addition go-fast tech bits...but it's hard to make up for that missing poundage." (Courtney, 2017)
