Motor Trend Redeems the Corvette Z06: It’s Faster than the Nissan GT-R
According to Motor Trend’s recent Corvette Z06 retest at Willow Springs International Raceway’s “Big Track”, the Z06 (when equipped with a manual transmission) is faster than the Nissan GT-R NISMO.
Corvette Forum has asked Tadge Juechter about the C7 Z06’s tendency to overheat after a bit of flogging. See Juechter’s answer after the jump.
A few days ago, we shared with you how Motor Trend dropped a bomb on everyone by announcing the GT-R Nismo beat out the new Corvette Z06 in their track test. Now they’ve got the video showing you how it happened.
Motor Trend decided to do a proper track test with the new Corvette Z06, while pitting the supercar against one of its main competitors: the Nissan GT-R Nismo.
Motor Trend seems to have all the fun. They get Ferraris, Porsches and all other sorts of super exotica. They were also able to score one of the first drives of the new Corvette Z06. Determining from the video after the jump, the car is heroic.
