    To me it looks like the car has some serious aero grip. A few fast spots on the track where almost every other supercar brakes or gets on the power late, he's either flat or barely lifts. Impressive. Mostly that it didn't overheat.

    I have been reading that the 2017 does much better with heat, but that it is still not out of the woods and handling long track sessions like the Camaro ZL1.

    With good old leaf spring technology, the corvette z06 is just a second slower on the Nordschleife than the high tech racer Porsche 918
