A Real American Hero

24 Aug

While I’ve never been much of an American car guy, ya gotta give credit where credit is due.  Lately, there is alot of very cool things that are happening in the American performance world, and most of it involves the legendary Corvette.  Some of you might have seen this video by now, but it’s worth watching.   This is the forthcoming ZR1 lapping the Nurburgring.   While the GTR has received a ton of well deserved press, this really does step it up to another level.

Need more proof that these are legit supercars?  How about the Pratt and Miller C6RS.  This car defines cool.   I mean come on…an 8.2 liter engine, full carbon body, fully sorted suspension.  Your very own LeMans racer is just a phone call away!   Take one Z06, add in a motorsports engineering company that just might know a thing or two about building a fast car, and the net result is a full fledged monster.  This takes a Z06 to a whole other level, and I think represents the pinnacle of what properly engineered modifications can achieve.
