Note that he shifts into 7th at 204mph and 208mph (2nd run), in an 8spd. With a modified rearend ratio some more speed is already in the car. Or Chevy once again left the last ratios too wide to be usable for performance.

Fast as hell but seemed very smooth at the same time. They obviously did their homework with the aero. Gotta add that the A8 seemed a bit confused early in the second run. Bottom line - Wicked fast car.

Very nice, almost 215!!!

How about C7 Z06? Can never get a solid number on the top speed, I guess the 3 stages of aero make it different, how about the stage 1 with the least drag. Always wondered about that.
