ZR-1 Returns to Nurburgring

I just read that GM took the Corvette ZR-1 back to the Nurburgring in Germany for another shot at the track record for a production car. This time they had racer Jan Magnussen at the controls and he managed to shave an incredible four seconds off the ZR-1's previous best of 7:26. The unofficial result was an amazing 7:22.4 which puts the ZR-1 just .3 seconds behind the much more hard core Dodge Viper ACR at the top of the heap.

Two bad ass, bargain American supercars showing up the world's best on one of the most challenging tracks in the world - Priceless.
