Track Time: Motor Trend Flogs the 2012 Z06!

Sure, the 2012 Z06 the test pilots from Motor Trend took to the track has some sweet options. There’s the Ultimate Performance Package, the Carbon Fiber Package, and the 3ZL Package. There’s also the Centennial Package, which is designed to ballast the vehicle with extra weight in the form of badges honoring the General’s 100th anniversary. Kidding. But as the old saying goes, the shoes make the man. And the shoes, in this case, are Michelin’s super-sticky Pilot Sport Cup tires, which is what the latest ZR1 was shod with when it blasted around the ‘Ring.

Given their short life span, do you think the almost-race tires are worth it? Check out this video, then join the discussion on the Forum!
