Even better news is this was done with a stock ZL1 with the eight-speed automatic and available ZTK Performance package. This record was set during validation testing last month at the track.
“The Corvette ZR1’s lap record at VIR, arguably America’s most challenging road course, is a testament to its supercar status,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “On the racetrack, the ZR1 can compete with any supercar — at any price.”
The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZL1 goes on sale this spring. SRP is $119,995 and the ZTK Performance Package will tack on an additional $2,995.
