Good afternoon,

On my way back from swimmign with my son I stopped off at WalMart and as I was paying fo rmy things noticed a car magazine with a nice yellow car on the cover that I thought must have been the new C7.

And it was. I never know that they had stayed with a 6.2 liter of a new generation nor that the car weighed 3300 lb which was more than I was expecting.

But the real interesting article was the ZR1 vs. 2014 Viper. Both had identical 0-60 times (3.4 sec) and 1/4 mile times (11.4 sec) but they took them to a track (forgot the name, Leguna Seca maybe??) and the ZR1 had a faster lap time by 2 seconds.

Nice to know that a 6 year old GM platform can crush Dodge's brand new top of the line sports car, and for $10,000 US less to boot! 2 seconds per lap is a huge, huge difference for cars that hp wise are twins.

My hats off to the GM engineers once again for being so far ahead of the game.........

Cheers,

Garry
 
Got it. Read it. Very good issue. It just proves how bad a** the C6's are.I'm hoping to see some comparisons of the C7 against the competition.:thumbup:

I watched a comparison on youtube. The driver also noted that the ZR1 was much easier to drive than the Viper and the Viper took a lot more effort to drive quickly and the suspension was much harsher. In the end he set the record for the fastest lap of a production car with the Corvette....didn't someone post that video on this forum???

Yeah, can't wait to see some numbers on the C7.. With more ponies and torque it should prove to be about the same performance as the C6 since it's slightly heavier.
We'll see.
