    Wow this video really hit a nerve! The GTR fanboys have nothing to say when the American corvette beats the first gen "supercar" around the ring?

    The GTR is really at the same pricepoint as the z06, but it's ok, next year's GTR will be faster. Click here to enlarge

    Let's say GTR = $80,000
    ZR1 = $120,000

    That gives you $40,000 to play with if you are concerned about being faster around a track than a ZR1.

    I wouldn't mind having either one, but if I was to buy a Corvette it would be a C4 ZR1, and if I was to buy a GTR it would be a R34.

    How is the zr1 performing better than the GTR an anomaly? It should with it being lighter and more powerful.

    Nothing to do with fanboys at all.

    EXACTLY.

    So why do people think the GTR laps faster than cars like the Carrera GT or Enzo? It is insanity.

    Im surprised the GTR came that close (3 sec difference), given the weight and HP defect the GTR has Vs the ZR1...
    I doubt the GTR was stock, but who knows about the ZR1.

    GTR is much more stable over bumps. Sport auto has the same time for both cars, faster for 2012 GTR actually. Their analysis was the gtr could carry more speed in corners and was stable over bumpy section.

    It is the right analysis, the GTR will inspire more confidence in uneven sections and the ring has its fair share of those. It takes a bit more skill to extract the performance out of the ZR-1.

    Is this correct? I thought it was a video of a "supercar" getting beat by a cheap american car on an advanced technical road course.

    Two supercars, and if anything I would say the GTR is cheap.

    Wait now the mass market zr1 is a supercar? Wow they are coming out of the woodwork!

    The cheap remark is a reference to the topgear corvette episode where they defile the corvette because it has a cheap plastic rear end/bumper.

    Yes, in my eyes the ZR1 would be a supercar, right up there with the Italia 458. It has the stats achieve "supercar" status, in my opinion. Or should I say it's a "super car"?

    Top Gear is cool but they do have a thing for ragging on USA cars, and I agree, so what if it is plastic? I'd rather it be plastic.

    Are you saying that the plastic rear end isn't on par with the price you pay for the vehicle? And the zr1 is more expensive more powerful and lighter. How is any of this a surprise? The only surprise is the bumper is crap lol.

    No way in hell a ZR1 or GTR is a "supercar".

    They may be near or even have supercar performance, but they are lacking in many other areas. Supercar is a high-end exotic sports car, they simply do not fall into that category.

    ZR-1 is a supercar up there with the 458? I don't know about that. Performance wise, sure, but the 458 is something special, more than just brute force.

    It isn't a surprise but with the way people hype the GTR it may surprise some who bought into it..

    I don't consider it a supercar either and do consider it a great car. Some people here though seem to think it is some crazy high performance supercar so that is why the result might surprise some.

    ok so let see here car A weighs 700lb less that car B, car A has 153 more hp than car B, oh wow car A has similar ceramic brakes as the FXX and car B has regular metal rotors by comparison. So lets sum it up car A has less weight with more power to move it and better brakes to stop its less weight and that equals 3sec after 13 miles!! SO WHAT IS MORE IMPRESSIVE CAR A OR CAR B??

    Yes you are right, the 458 takes a special amount of $$$ to own.

    Not just that, it is a special car and a technical achievement.
