Testing the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray Z51 0-60 MPH 'til they take the keys away
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray has a
6.2L V8 that produces 460 HP with the performance Exhaust. Chevy and the Car magazines say the the
brand new Corvette will tear from 0-60 MPH in 3.8 seconds with a top speed
of about 190 MPH. In another fun and informative TFLcar video we see just
how close we can get the new 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray with the Z51
performance package from 0-60 MPH at sea level. Can we match the GM's
claimed time? Can GM match the claimed time? You'll have to watch this

2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 - Virginia International Raceway
Chevrolet Ranks as Top Performance Brand in U.S.
Corvette and Camaro
accounted for one in three sports car sales in 2011
DETROIT -- Chevrolet is America's favorite performance brand, with Camaro and Corvette accounting
for one out of every three sports cars sold in the United States in 2011.
Chevrolet accounted for 37 percent of the sports-car segment last year,
selling 88,249 Camaros,
which surpassed its nearest competitor, the Ford Mustang, by more than 18,000 units.
That lead is expected to increase when the new Camaro ZL1 goes on sale this
Chevrolet accounted for 28 percent of the luxury-sports-car segment in
2011, selling 13,164 Corvettes. Currently the only domestic car in the
segment, Corvette more than doubled the sales of its nearest competitor,
the Porsche 911.
"With the addition of the Camaro ZL1, there are only a
handful of brands in the world with two cars that can match the
performance, technology, and excitement of Corvette and Camaro," said General Motors
North America President Mark Reuss. "Unlike many competitors' performance
cars, the Corvette ZR1 and Camaro ZL1 are appropriate for
both daily drivers and track use from the factory -- with standard coolers
for brakes and drivetrain."
"And we challenge any company to bring two cars to compete with the
Corvette ZR1 and Camaro
ZL1, dollar for dollar," Reuss said. "They will discover what enthusiasts
already know -- that Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette are the
world's best performance cars for the money."
To demonstrate the capabilities of the Corvette and Camaro, Chevrolet recently tested
full-production models with no performance modifications on the "Grand
Course" at Virginia International Raceway. The Grand Course configuration
is a challenge for production cars because it requires prodigious power,
precise handling and tenacious grip to record a fast lap.
In a 2012 Corvette ZR1, equipped with new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires,
Corvette engineer Jim Mero lapped the Grand Course in 2:45.6 -- faster than the published lap time for any
In a 2012 Camaro ZL1,
Camaro engineer Aaron
Link lapped the Grand Course in 2:52.4 -- more than six seconds faster than the published lap time of a 2011
Ford Shelby GT500 on the same track.
Car and Driver Magazine, which conducts the annual Lightning Lap shootout
at Virginia International Raceway, called the track "the nearest thing to
the Nurburgring's fabled Nordschleife."
"The Grand Course at VIR is an excellent test of all-around vehicle
Reuss. "Like the Nurburgring, a single lap at VIR tests every aspect of a
car, including power, brakes, steering, tire grip and chassis balance. To
break a three-minute lap on the four-mile Grand Course is an incredible
accomplishment for any car."
The Corvette ZR1 is the most powerful vehicle Chevrolet has ever produced,
with a supercharged, 6.2L, LS9 V-8 delivering 638 horsepower and 604
pound-feet of torque. Of all mass-production companies, Chevrolet is the
leader in carbon fiber use, with the lightweight material used for
structural components on the ZR1 including the front fenders, hood, roof,
front splitter, rocker panels and floor pans. With a curb weight of 3,353
pounds, the ZR1 features a power-to-weight ratio of just 5.2 pounds per horsepower. As a
result, the ZR1 is also the fastest Chevrolet ever produced, capable of
accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, and reaching a top speed of
205 mph. The Corvette ZR1 starts at $112,575, including destination.
The Camaro ZL1 is the
ever produced, with a supercharged, 6.2L, LSA V-8 delivering 580-horsepower, and 556
pound-feet of torque. It is also the most-sophisticated Camaro ever, with exclusive
performance technologies including Performance Traction Management and
Magnetic Ride suspension. Other standard performance features include
six-piston Brembo brakes, and coolers for the rear differential, brakes,
and transmission. As a result, the ZL1 is also the most-capable Camaro ever, accelerating from 0
to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, reaching a top speed of 184 mph, and lapping the
famed Nurburgring in just 7:41.27. The Camaro ZL1 starts at $54,995,
Both Corvette and Camaro have also recently been
recognized by IntelliChoice as the best overall value in their segments --
further evidence that consumers get more performance for their money from

Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1. Unfortuantely,
this was a day that the 'ring was open to the public and traffic slowed
down the 638 hp Corvette several times. Still, a great way to see how a
professional race car driver attacks one of the most difficult road courses
in the world.
