Guys there are these wonderful little boom mics you can clip on your shirt collar. Use them. Helluva driver. Would have been nice to hear what he was saying.

It’s amazing how 60mph looks super slow, but that’s freeway speed.

Horrible track for any car without AWD, the sand on this track lost me my 2013 Z06 coming into the first turn at around 135mph when the front end slid out like an old 1980's IROQ-Z Camara in the past....totalled! Waiting for ZR1 or if viable cost wise and performance the mid- engine Zora.

Automatic transmission on a test and tune/bracket car? Sure. Automatic on a street car. Hell no!
Clifford Purk (2 months ago)
So many people comp,aiming about 8spd. It's obviously good enough to put a smashing on the GT. I think it shifted just fine. If you listen to how smooth it shifted and how quick it gained speed there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with th the 8 in this car.

Should’ve stay with the 6 speed manual

Small Johnson (6 months ago)
so I am confused now maybe someone could shed some light on the new 2018-2019 corvette. for a while now I read a few articles on the new corvette converting to MR? I read one article I believe from C&D it was going to be a basic copy of the Honda/Acura NSX. it was going to have a 650 HP MId-Eng and two electric motors up front to make it an advance AWD like the NSX just with out the SH meaning the back wheels won't provide turning.
MR BASS HEAD (6 months ago)
To the GM engineers here is i combo that ran 10.09 at the track and has great track manners and stupid acceleration. It was 08 c6 z06 bone stock motor with a zr1 6 speed plus 3.73 gears.

TasteMyStinkhole (6 months ago)
That's a smooth track, and the tire noise is horrendous. I can imagine the deafening roar on our worn freeways. And it must be odd to watch the engine cover bouncing around while you're driving.

David Ciesielski (6 months ago)
Hi, Its about 1.39 lap time. That is not very fast....A 240 lb guy on a old gsxr 750 could beat that time by a bunch... just saying . Please tell me I"m wrong....Thanks
David Ciesielski (6 months ago)
Very good point.
Dean Roddey (6 months ago)
It's a press car and they probably don't have a lot of them ready yet so they need to keep them running. And I'm guessing probably pre-production as well? It's probably not reasonable to expect to see it really pushed hard until they have production ready ones and take it somewhere for testing, hopefully the ring.
Kerry Stockwell (6 months ago)
David Ciesielski wow that is slow. Maybe it was just the interior of the new vette in an old fox body Mustang
James Burke (6 months ago)
Is there some kind of rule that every automotive journalist must look like the assistant manager of a Dominos?
S. Chris T. (6 months ago)
This 2019 C7 ZR1 deserved to be fitted with an 8 speed manual transmission, the Z06 also has a 7 speed manual transmission, and this ZR1 is supposed to be a step above the Z06, Chevy (GM ) should've pulled the trigger, and did it for this car. I'll be shocked if the C8 mid-engine 'Vette isn't equipped with an 8 speed manual transmission...
Jeff Will (6 months ago)
There was 2 mules here. One was a manual and other auto. 7 spd was uprated and auto received revisions.
Mk L (6 months ago)
Agreed, it’s more fun to be the driver assist in my simple opinion. Cheers

Mean machine! Like unleashing a beast! The harder you run it, the faster it seem to get
Wesley Mooney (6 months ago)
There was a time in the past where manual was superior but now days the automatic is king
Justin Walters (6 months ago)
didnt seem like much of a king to me in this video, seemed like it couldnt keep up.
Howard Z (6 months ago)
Automatic ☹️
Cam Walker (6 months ago)
Impressive power & grip. Transmission isn't too hot....PDK it is not! The ratio gaps seem large, and it's definitely not shifting appropriately at times. Manual tranny will be better.
rick parad (6 months ago)
Am i the only one going crazy about the fact that the steering angle maxxes out at like 120• of angle??? Fucken joke lol

Man... This driving set up is awesome. What a way to show how well a vehicle handles or not. 👍👍👍 Again... Awesome. Just like a video game set-up.

Swiss128 (6 months ago)
i hope GM have learned from their mistakes (Z06) and the new ZR1 will be a better car. But honestly i`m not so sure...
Travis V (6 months ago)
Being able to watch the engine vibrate and sway because the entire cover is exposed is extremely cool. Not sure why the ZR1 doesn't get the 10-speed, but it's still a monstrous car.
Mike West (6 months ago)
Miss Daisy and Hokum could have put down a better lap time.
Old school (6 months ago)
The 6 speed ZL1 is the better buy, and seems like more technology was put in. And if you can't drive a 6 speed get the 10 speed auto ZL1.

NOTICE ONLY ONE LAP BECAUSE IF YOU DO MULTIPLE LAPS THE CAR OVER HEATS AND CANT HANDLE IT. CARS ARE AWESOME FOR STREET BUT NOT REALLY MADE FOR THE ABUSE OF THE TRACK ESPECIALLY THE AUTO TRANSMISSION. GM LEMONED MY Z 06
Robert Dean (6 months ago)
More impressed with the ZL1 1LE.
Thanh quach (6 months ago)
What was with the 2nd to 3rd gear shift at the start?! Odd gearchange wtf
Matt Wiser (6 months ago)
I hope I'm wrong and I'm sure the car is seriously insane but at 1:30 it doesn't really look like the car is going 130mph around that corner...
Quayshawn Dameron (6 months ago)
Y'all don't give the damn car too Randy poust at motortrend!!!!!!! Non of this soft driving lol jk....but no really my boy Randy needs to put up some track times let's see if it can stack well with the acr

David Beattie (6 months ago)
Put a blindfold over your eyes (as a passenger),  would you be able to tell any difference between a ZR1 & a modified Z06???  I seriously doubt it.  Yet there is almost a $50K difference.  NOT IMPRESSED.

agreed it's nothing special by any means to me

that shift @ 1:23
Willow springs is about the worst race track humanity has to offer. Dreadfully boring.

A 1'28 second lap. Needs to be a lot quicker to keep up with the 720S

Thing still looks pretty loose. Basically a Z06 with more power. It will never realize its full potential until they get it stuck to the ground!

Hey Chevrolet Actually, I am really hoping that the mid-engine Vett will be all wheel drive monster, but we'll see.

they just need to invest in a proper DCT,it adds 80 lbs they can get rid of that easily in engineering the next 1or 2 years,besides the weight the car will be that much faster,I'd still buy the manual

Auto?????!!!!!! Gay What is with you people?
bptryp (6 months ago)
Is it just me or does it seem like the acceleration out of corners isn't impressive? Makes a lot of noise, though.
