This morning HorsepowerKings got our hopes up by claiming the 2015 Corvette Z06 completed a 6:59.13 lap on the Nürburgring. That would be great if it were true … but it’s not.
Since we never did get an official number, one crafty Corvette Forum member has found a way to calculate a number for the Z06 Nürburgring time.
Personally, this one is painful for me to look at. The idea of seeing a wrecked new Z06 sitting on a flatbed truck driving down the road is like watching someone’s charred remains cruising around in a convertible hearse.
While it doesn’t sound like the driver is going full-force with the Z06 in the video after the jump, he did manage to shunt it. Hopefully they brought spares.
If the Acura NSX does ever make it to production, it will be built in Ohio — the same state where it is being engineered. In many ways the NSX will be America’s next sports car, and a welcome Corvette competitor … if it ever sees the light of day.
