    Check out the sticker on the back of the silver one that the article says was the actual car that did 7:59 at Nurburgring driven by Heinric:



    Looks like it's a loop of the Nordschleife with 7:59 inside. Nice!

    Cheers, Jeff

    Did you see that crazy HP curve in picture 51??? And the torque curve is as flat as iowa even at low RPM's. Looks like it is making 375 lbft at 1000 RPM!

    There is a LOT of area under those curves. Stealth plug those numbers into your calculator and see if you don't get a LOT closer.

    I love the second video as the engineer describes exactly what is wrong with the V1. To paraphrase, "when the half shafts are the same diameter they create an oscillatory force as the torque is loading and unloading in each half shaft, transferring through the limited slip differential, translating into an up and down motion, also known as axle hop or tramp." I'm speechless.

    Chris, it's the same with every similar car that has wheel hop. Kudos to GM for the solution.

    I think $65k is a conservative estimate. This car has 150 more hp than an M3 and is a lot bigger.
