I've been waiting for a fantastic number from the Corvette Grand Sport in this year's Lightning Lap!  I fully expected it to be much closer to the killer Z06 pace at VIR than the Z51...   It's been a few years since I've been to VIR, last outing in a C6 Z06 - what an amazing track!

Car & Driver numbers:
Corvette Z51 2:53.8
NISMO 2:49.4
Corvette Grand Sport 2:47.1
Z06 2:44.6
Viper ACR 2:44.2

For the Grand Sport to lay down a 2:47.1 lap with only 465 horsepower really highlights the chassis capability and the confidence it must inspire in the driver for semi-pro auto journalist to nail down such a stellar time!!!!!   The Grand Sport is now 2.5 seconds in front of/faster than a NISMO in the hands of highly skilled semi-pro level drivers at Car & Driver - WOW!!!!!!!  

Sure a true Pro level driver may go a second or two faster with more consistency between laps, but don't discount these times.  I've been to VIR and these times are FAST!!!! The Car & Driver guys have hundreds of laps at VIR under their belts after 10 years of Lightning Lap - they know what they are doing.

The Grand Sport's Z06 chassis parts and Michelin Sport Cup 2's with a 180 tread wear rating offer up nearly 1.2 g's of cornering capability at VIR creating the 6.7 second gap over the Z51.  A tenth or two in every corner adds up fast at VIR.

Bad ASS!

My fiancé wants our next ride to be a C7 and we have been heavily favoring the Gran Sport for a while.  It just seems to the best all around Corvette offering at the moment.

Fantastic post!  I love to see touring threads likes this.  We have done a couple long haul trips in our GT-R and it was lots of fun.
