According to a recent report, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in approximately seven minutes and eight seconds.

While the company hasn't released the car's official time - and likely won't until Capricorn Nürburgring GmbH officially lifts the ban on 'Ring records - Autoweek is reporting "a guy who spends a ton of time (and money) at the Nürburgring" recently said Chevrolet achieved the 7:08 lap time in a 2015 Corvette Z06 equipped with the Z07 package.

If the number pans out, the 2015 Corvette Z06 would be about 14 seconds faster than its predecessor and right on up there with the Nissan GT-R Nismo.
