What's the ZR1 chasing? UPDATE INSIDE!!!!

[u2b]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/MXsKEbBxzls&hl=en&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/MXsKEbBxzls&hl=en&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/u2b]

My guess is a 997 Turbo.

The answer is infact a Lambo LP670 SV

Here's the video

No clue, but it doesnŽt sound like a Porsche to me. IŽd day its an highly reved NA engine.

Agreed, sounds more like an F430. Whatever it is, it isn't as fast as the ZR-1, but clearly handles better.

That's definitely a V10. Its not the Carrera GT or the Viper, so I'll bet it's the Gallardo LP 560-4.

I agree with Anthony. I think its a lambo.

Its amazing how quickly the ZR1 would make up the distance between the cars when it wanted too.

N/A, high revving. Either an LP560 or R8 5.2 FSI (V10).

It's definitely a Gallardo or the R8 with the Gallardo engine. It might be the new rwd Gallardo but I'm not entirely sure whether it's been released to the press as yet.

The vette is so twitchy and tail happy. One false move and your ass will be grass

Great vid. One can only hope that road was closed but looks pretty clear it wasn't. If a user posted that his post would get deleted so fast...

Based purely on sound my guess is C-GT but common sense tells me it is something much newer and more "exciting" (like a C-GT is no longer exciting). The part where the Vette got airborne was cool. It was also darn impressive how quick the Vette closed some of the gaps.

Its a test track that I've seen Tiff from fifth gear test before - anyone else recognize it? Especially with that one jump w/ the huge air?

And I'm guessing LP 560-4

My guess would be either the Lambo/V-10 R8 or a Porsche GT3 RS. IDK why they would put a ZR1 chasing a GT3, but the car sounds alot like it IMO.

Got to see a ZR-1 pull away from me at Cal Speedway, not a huge Vette fan, that car was jaw dropping.
