I don't have any scans yet but as soon as I find them I will post them here.
Here are the key figures (ZR1 / GT-R):
Nürburgring - 7:38 / 7:38
Hockenheimring - 1:09,7 / 1:10,7
Wet Handling Course - 1:35,8 / 1:32,4
Or maybe the ZR1 that GM drove was a RINGER.This is a bit weird. I'm glad that the super test was done cause they use the same standards like star and stop locations and flying starts etc. So that now evens out the differences between the zr1 manufacture vid (since nissan uses the same standards as sport auto). But clearly watching the original zr1 showed it could go much faster if the driver made better choices. Maybe there was traffic or something. But it goes to show its not that easy to drive a zr1.
Also important I think to add, Sport Auto's GT-R for the supertest only managed 4.1s to 100kph. That was positively not an up-tuned press car. Even when running like a bag of sod, it pulled off a 7:38.This is what we call a definitive result.
The ZR1 is a staggering 12km/h faster than the GT-R down the straight, so there is absolutely no weight to the claim that the GT-R was a ringer.
And yet the ZR1 could only match the GT-R's lap time.
You can see that the GT-R is clearly faster than the ZR1 through the difficult technical sections like the Fuchsrohre, Pflanzgarten, Anfahrt-Schwalbenschwanz and Metzgesfeld.
All these parts of the track are characterized by camber transitions, bumps and sharp dips.
There is another test done by AutoBild Sportscars. The driver was Sacha Bert and the time was 7:41 but apparantly it started to drizzle during the lap. they didnt say how much that affected the lap time. Bert also said that the tires were the stickiest street tires he knows.IIRC, yes
ZR1 times have been suspiciously few and far between.
I haven't been keeping track for months, so I may be wrong.
