Yeah, everything is stock on the ZR1 besides the safety equipment and the testing electronics.

Two things...

1) That thing is a beast. And that's a damn good driver too.

2) I can't believe how well I know that track just from playing Forza 2 so much. It's startling.

Haha I was thinking the same, but I know it from Project Gotham Racing.

Does anyone know what year that 'Vette is? I definitely have a newfound respect for 'Vettes!

What's cool is that in a couple weeks when I head down to Galveston for college orientation with my dad, we are going to rent Hertz's Corvette ZHZ! Unfortunately it's automatic, but the best car you can rent from them!

It's a ZR1. It hasn't even come out yet. It's an '09 model. Priced around 103k I believe.

here's the funny thing, Jim Mero isn't even a test driver, he's an development engineer. If it did a 7:26 in his hands, I can't wait to see what Jan Magnussen or another top-notch factory driver can do with it. Someone like that could easily shave a couple seconds off that time and get closer to 7:20.

Starts at 103K and tops out around 117K fully loaded. Based on what you get for that money, it's a steal. Some are starting to hit the road but they "officially" go on sale in August I believe.

Yeah, GM said they were targeting the CarerraGT when developing the ZR1. It looks like they surpassed their expectations.
