Unfortunately it seems Chevrolet is having some trouble getting the ZR1 around in under 420 seconds, with the leading culprit believed to be the excessive amount of downforce needed to make the Corvette behave which ends up generating mass amounts of drag which just sucks speed down the 1.3-mile long Döttinger Höhe straight. It’s believed the ZR1 is hovering around the 7:10 minute mark, for now. What’s absurd is that we’re so spoiled for performance figures in 2018 that the ZR1 is considered “slow”
because it can’t crack 7-minutes. I’s still on par with the AMG GT R, the Porsche 918, and, most importantly, the Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR. Isn’t it cool when automakers get along?
