Based on what I've seen, the M3 can beat the older standard C5 Corvette, but it can't touch even the standard C6, let alone the Z06 and ZR1 variants.
I would consider the ZR1 to be a "poor man's" super car.
I've driven a ZR1 and many C6 Z06's and even heavily modded Z06's. For me, a super car has to have the speed and most importantly the ability to control that speed. Corvettes are fast but don't handle like Porsches. Corvettes lack the feel of the drive, they're all about brute speed and that's about it.
