Dennis  4d ago @tyler

thank you sir. deciding between grand sport z07 and non z07, I don't track that often and it's at my budget limit! but seems like there is a big jump between non z07 and the z07 grand sport? between z51 non grand sport and grand sport non z07 they seem pretty similar and close.

Some of these lap times are wrong, because they were taken from the Car & Driver lightning lap test, which uses the Grand West Course (4.1 mile) configuration instead of the Grand East Course configuration.

It is only a single laptime, If other surface and are just as fantastic, Then that should calm any doubts about it, But Not every car performs the same on every track.

@DodgeHemi. You do realize the GT3 RS put in nearly identical lap times as the Z06 (when it's not broken) at Laguna and other tracks.

We know at NO track is the Z06 faster than the ACR. Yet here the grand sport which has nearly 200hp less than the Z06, puts in a lap time just 3 seconds behind an ACR on such a large track.

Perhaps all that can be said is there's a lack of consistency in the laps.


User avatar

whaaaa???  7m ago

Something's definitely wrong here...the 2.44.2 time for the ACR along with the Grandsport's time of 2.47.1 etc. and all the other 2016 Car and Drive Lightning Lap times seem accurate. What's not accurate is that fastestlaps calls this the Grand East Course when, if you look at the issue, the map they say they tested on was the Grand West Course. It appears there are slight but noticeable differences between both track layouts, am I missing something here? Also, I feel that C&D has always tested using the Grand West Course. I haven't verified that or the times but I wonder how many other of these times are incorrectly posted here under the Grand East Course times??

Why is that too fast? The GS Z07 has only 40 hp less than the GT3 RS and with all that aero, those semi-slicks and the world class brakes I'm not surprised it's right in there. The cornering capabilities are just out of this world. The 570 S is much less radical in terms of tires and the like so again, I was expecting this.


User avatar

BR2+  8m ago

That is one of the ideas i was thinking, hat GrandSport time just seems way too fast, I know a GS is damn near a ZO6 without the power, So its alot more manageable and confidence inspiring and less batshite crazy overall, And Chevrolet knows how to make a car handle, But It just seems TOO fast, They all seem too fast, But that one stands out the most, Followed by the R8 V10.


User avatar

saxy  8m ago

LOL... that grand sport time... unless GM slipped in with their own guys and team to prep and run the lap themselves. Perhaps they just had a team of journalists drive them. and sometimes you got captain slow and sometimes you got the stig.

In willow spring Huracan is 5s faster. Is loght and have much better tires. Depends of a track. If the track is very technical the diference is biguer.

On the other hand a super car like a 458 in a profesional drivee hands have better times than a Turbo S. R8 and turbo S are faster in all cases and in the regular drivers hands but a 650S or 458 are faster in the limit.

Agreed, There is something up with that test, It just doesnt seem right, None of the cars seem too slow, They all seem TOO fast, Focus RS as fast as an M4? GrandSport as fast as a GT3 and 570S, And literally kicking the shite outta the NSX?...And then theres that R8 Time, Theres NO way in hell its .4s faster then the older model, And 10s slower then the LP610.

I think its a misprint, Theres gotta be some typos, Or, Like the 458 in later years the cars were tailored by factory help to get the best times, But that many? I doubt it, Either way, Something too me seems off.

Honestly, i dont trust this kind of results. Last time the driver of the TA lost more than a second just cause of improper driving, and now they just have done a non relative laptime.
Audi R8 time it's a joke. Anyone who has drive knows that is impossible that almost the same f****ng car has done it 10seconds faster in the same conditions


User avatar

BR2+  8m ago

Those are interesting results, They all seem WAY too fast, With exception to the 488 GTB and ACR.

Considering all the turns this track has, I expected the ACR to be atleast a second faster then a ZO6, And the GrandSport being as fast as a 570S and GT3 RS......That just seesm Way to fast. And a GT350R doing a 2:51?...And a R8 V10 Plus being 10 seconds SLOWER then a Huracan?..

Every car that dips under 3mins just seems to be a little weird, Its like they all seem to be too fast, Something just seems off...Or is it just me?..
