Does anyone know what times the Z06 has posted on the Nurenburgring? Is there a place that shows all of the stock times at the ring? I'm wondering how it stacks up against 911's, 360's, M3's, etc. I have some friends who are questioning the Z06's track ability and I thought this would be the easy way to prove it! Any help is appreciated ... Nick

Unfortunately, most of the numbers that I find when I do a Google search are for XBox! That's why I'm asking.

Yeah, the C5 Z did the Ring in just under 8 minutes, I want to say 7:56, but I could be wrong.

War Eagle, do you play PGR Live or just single player?

If you're live look me up "Ce7en" and let's have a run at the ring Z06 style!

You sure the M3 is faster than the 911 TT, 360 Stradale, Viper, etc.? I know the CSL is quicker than the base M3, but I'm still surprised, because I'd expect the base M3 to be near the bottom of that pack - somewhere around 8:20.

PS: The Nurburgring on Xbox is HARD.

The time's correct. M3 CSL is v quick on the track, much quicker than a standard M3.

I dont totally trust those numbers! a C6 would never lap that track in the SAME time a Z06 does. First the Z is faster, breaks better, handles MUCH better, and has more traction.

A C6 would lap as fast a a ZO6 if the ZO6 made some mistakes on the track, or if the track conditions were not the same in each cars test, or if the cars were not set up the same (tire wear, alignment, brakes worn)...

could be.. but i know a lot of these tests cannt be trusted. Becuase most of these figures are used for the press and the press is just unreliable when it comes to specifics. They could have estimated some stuff or even used correction factors. Show me a video :rofl:

OK - now when did Dave Hill lap the 'Ring in a C6 in 7:56?

If this is true - why did they have to ask John Heinricy to make the 7:56 time in the Z16?

Just where is this C6 time coming from?

I don't believe that time for a C6. Comparisons I've read say that the Z06 handles better, brakes better, accelerates stronger. The Supercar tires on the Z06 are also a lot better than the emt tires on the C6 -PLUS, the C6 suspension is too soft.

I have a feeling they had to lie to help the new car sell. Otherwise, the sales numbers would be even lower. It's called marketing, folks. ;)

I agree with you guys about this being a marketing ploy. GM marketing and sales staff continually push all of the similarites between the C5 Z and the C6 Z51, this is just another attempt for them to say "hey look these cars are the same....buy a C6." However, everything I have read indicates that these are two very different cars (braking, handling, acceleration, etc.). The only way that the C6 could make up time is perhaps the difference in the drag coefficient translating to the C6 having a slightly higher top speed than the C5 Z, but I think that is wishful thinking on GM's part.

And not only that - but with no disresepct to Dave Hill, there is no way in hell he turned the same time in a C6 Z51, that John Heinrichy did in the Z16... if he did, Dave Hill would be driving the C6R.. :D
