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."
Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition sets lap time of 7:14
We now have the official track time for the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition.
Driver Akira Iida clocked a lap time of 7:14.64 on the
Nürburgring-Nordschleife on August 31. The special edition LFA did it
using its standard-issue (road-legal) Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.
The LFA Nürburgring Package is scheduled to go into a limited-run
production in 2012. Only 50 units will be from a total LFA production run
of 500 models.
The Nürburgring Edition of the LFA comes with a carbon fiber body kit, a
re-tuned suspension and an upgraded 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is
powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) - the
standard LFA has an output of 412 kW (560 PS). The complete package costs
an additional $70,000 but delivers a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.7 seconds
and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
2012 Mercedes M-Class revealed - in brief
Mercedes has officially unveiled the 2012 M-Class.
Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year, the redesigned
crossover has an evolutionary design that is instantly recognizable as an
M-Class. Notable highlights include a prominent front grille, sculpted
sides, wraparound taillights and 17- to 21-inch alloy wheels, with the
largest rims getting the AMG badge.
While the exterior styling is slightly déjà vu, the cabin has been
significantly improved with higher quality materials and an enhanced
design. The dashboard draws inspiration from the S-Class and features a
wide swatch of wood trim. Elsewhere, there's a wider center console,
aluminum accents, an updated COMAND system and an optional panoramic
At launch, three different engines will be offered. The entry-level ML 250
Bluetec has a 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel that produces 204 PS (150 kW /
201 hp) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque.
Moving up to the ML 350 Bluetec rewards drivers with a 3.0-liter V6 diesel
engine with 258 PS (190 kW / 254 hp) and 457 lb-ft (619 Nm) of torque.
Early speculation is that the engine will allow the driver to sprint to 100
km/h (62 mph) in about 7.5 seconds before topping out at 224 km/h (139
Lastly, if you're a petrol fan, the ML 350 BlueEfficiency has a 3.5-liter
V6 engine that develops 306 PS (225 kW / 302 hp) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of
torque. This model will be able to race all the way up to 235 km/h (146
mph), though its sprint time is slightly slower.
Regardless of what powertrain is selected, all engines are paired to a
7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
In terms of handling, all models come equipped with a selective damping
suspension. Customers can also order an Airmatic self-leveling air
suspension and an Active Curve System with dynamic roll stabilization.
Of course, since this is a Mercedes, the crossover can be outfitted with
all the latest technology. Options include Night View Assist Plus (with
pedestrian recognition), Speed Limit Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind
Spot Assist, Active Park Assist and Distronic Plus - just to name a few.
The 2012 Mercedes M-Class will be launched this fall, but pricing
information is still pending.
Pagani Zonda R - Nurburgring lap
Pagani - Pirelli Tyre - Assuring new technologies and materials are fit for
production means also putting the vehicle's components under severe
stresses, exceeding those normally encountered in every day road driving.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most demanding track in the world, for
man and machine, an ordeal that each Pagani has to pass, only one of many
in the entire development phase.
The Zonda R serves as the ultimate test bench, a car able to reach
acceleration figures and speeds that are not possible with a road car.
This is further underlined by a laptime of 6:47,5 min for the 20,832 km
Nordschleife. Driver: Marc Basseng
Corvette ZR1 - Jay Leno's Garage
Corvette ZR1. Although a ZR1 was never part of the original C6 plan, legend
has it that at an early review, CEO Rick Wagoner was so impressed that he
wondered aloud, "If that's what you can do with $60,000, I wonder what a
$100,000 Corvette would look like?"

Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1
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.
