Corvette Z06 fitted with the Z07 chassis package takes its turn on the Green Hell.

The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 laps the Nürburgring in 7 minutes 22.68 seconds and we get to see it all in this video.

The driver is Corvette engineer Jim Mero and the time he posted beats the previous Z06 record set back in 2005 by a long 20 seconds as well as being just 3 seconds behind Mero's own lap time with the ZR1.

This Z06 has been fitted with the Z07 chassis package which helps the car takes those curves and dips on the Green Hell here.

The Z06 places just ahead of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which set a time of 7:24 on the ring last year with Sport Auto driver Horst von Saurma.
