Great to see a high speed test. I really don't think this car is faster than a C5 Z06 in 1/4 mile and top speed acceleration tests. For example, on the autobahn, in my C5 Z06, the rate of acceleration to the top speed was way faster and the 1/4 mile as well. The specs for the C7 seem to shine in handling.
One thing I have not seen posted from GM is the HP to weight ratio like they did when the C5 Z06 first came out, which really aids in the performance of the vehicle overall. Don't get me wrong, the C7 is a great car overall, and I want one, but it is a pig in weight, and the extra HP only makes it marginally quicker than the last generation LS3 equipped vehicles due to the extra weight the C7 carries.
I can't wait to see what the performance options from you will be for this car. Those of us who love in Germany, or plan on going back, will need to have the power to keep up with the Euro's...
