TechTalk with Chad Hembree. We took a trip the National Corvette Museum to cover the C5/C6 bash and the 2012 Centennial Edition Corvette. This is an excerpt from Episode 230 featuring the trip. Be sure to watch the bloopers after the credits. The wind was terrible that day and we did not have sufficient windscreens. Please overlook the sound issues as we will be more prepared in the future. http://www.chadhembree.com

2012 Corvette ZR1 Takes on Nurburgring
New 2012 models eclipse previous-best lap times at Germany's famed testing
Corvette returned to the world's most-demanding testing ground -- Germany's
famed Nurburgring -- and recorded lap times that rank among the fastest
recorded for a production car.
As detailed on video, the 2012 Corvette ZR1 recorded a lap time of 7:19.63,
more than six seconds faster than
the previous Corvette-best recorded in 2008. A lap video featuring the
Corvette Z06 will be released soon.
"Testing at the Nurburgring is one of the important methods we have to
validate our car in the toughest track conditions." says Tadge Juechter,
Corvette vehicle line director and chief engineer.
Measuring 12.9 miles (20.8 km) and including some 154 turns, the
Nurburgring's Nordschleife ("north loop") is widely considered the world's
most-demanding course. As was the case at Corvette's last test in 2008, the
car was driven by Corvette engineer Jim Mero and was a full production
model with no performance modifications. This test was to validate the
car's added performance technology coming to production later this summer
for the 2012 model year.
Corvette's improved performance for 2012 begins with the new, optional
Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires, which are available on
the two highest-performing models, the lightweight, 505-hp (377 kW) Z06 and
the maximum-performance, 638-hp (476 kW) supercharged ZR1. They are
competition-oriented tires, optimized for warm, dry conditions to increase
cornering and handling capability.
When combined with the Corvette's exclusive Performance Traction Management
(PTM) technology -- which manages torque delivery for maximum performance
-- the tires set new benchmarks for Corvette performance. Engineers
estimate an 8-percent gain in maximum lateral acceleration, to more than
1.1g, and improved braking distance.
The Shamrock Shoot - Behind The Scenes
In early November of 2011, our crew trailered a '54 black Corvette and a
ZR1 Corvette to the Texas panhandle town of Shamrock. The city and a
art deco former service station from the 1930s are located on what was once
Route 66, which stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles.
We took the cars there to shoot two entries for the Chevy Super Bowl
Commercial contest. Both
spots are whimsical, off-the-beaten path, and fun in style. Though we
didn't make it to the finals, we
worked hard, but also had a good time shooting and producing the spots.
This video is a
behind-the-scenes 'making of' look at how they both came together....

Broward Sheriff's Corvette Looking for Victims on the Turnpike
A Corvette Police Car from Broward Sheriff's in Palm Beach
looking for victims on the Turnpike! It had to be the craziest sight to
see when you're speeding. He kept it locked at 80mph so if you passed him
that's 10 over and a ticket. Pretty cool car though.
Corvette ZR1 Tracktest: V8-Power mit Hammer-Sound
V8-Kompressor, 647 PS, 819 Nm: Diese Bärenkräfte sollten locker reichen,
damit sich die Corvette ZR1 auf Platz eins der Tracktest-Bestenliste
schieben kann. Ob's gelingt? Patrick Simon gibt jedenfalls alles!
