there is another laptime for the z51 packaged c6 vette but it's not a sport auto time so it's about as valid as getting hans stuck to drive the e92 M3 around the nurburgring:
7:59* -- 154.822 km/h -- Chevrolet C6 Z51, company test driver Dave Hill (*mfr.)

the competition for the c6 z06, etc. will come with the e92 M3 CSL. the e46 M3 CSL managed to drop 32 seconds on its nurburgring laptime compared to the standard e46 M3:
8:22 --- 147.749 km/h -- BMW M3 E46, 343 PS/1584 kg (sport auto 12/00)
7:50 --- 157.787 km/h -- BMW E46 M3 CSL, 360 PS/1421 kg (sport auto 08/03)

now i'm not saying the e92 M3 CSL will have the same 32 second difference with the non-CSL e92 M3, but the non-CSL e92 M3 has already proven that it's faster than the e46 M3 CSL in a straight line:
e46 M3 CSL: 16.1s
e92 M3: 15.8s

and braking performance is the same:
e46 M3 CSL: 100km/h - 0: 34m
e92 M3: 100km/h - 0:34m

so with that stated i think we can definitely assume that the e92 M3 CSL will pull an even better time around the nurburgring than the e46 M3 CSL. somewhere in the 7:4X range would put it head to head with cars like:
