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
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!
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.
Owner and IDOT Trash C5 Corvette, 2:00am, 3/18/11
I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving
had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim
of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild
50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as
long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy,
and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too
much money and too little common sense, you're human.

2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 hits the Nürburgring
To demonstrate the improvements on the 2012 Corvette, Chevrolet has
returned to the Nürburgring with the range-topping ZR1.
As the video shows, the car - which features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8
engine with 638 hp (476 kW / 647 PS) and 604 lb-ft (818 Nm) of torque -
lapped the legendary Nordschleife in 7:19.63 which is more than six seconds
faster than the previous Corvette
record that was set back in 2008.
To get the improved time, the ZR1 was equipped with the new PDE performance
package which has a full-width rear spoiler and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup
Zero Pressure tires that are "optimized for warm, dry conditions to
increase cornering and handling capability."
