Carrera26 That track is easily one of the most challenging in the world. Narrow, relatively bumpy, lined with slick grass and unforgiving walls, high speeds and large elevation changes. There's a reason that the great Jackie Stewart called it the "Green Hell". It still sometimes goes by this name, the "Grune Holle".

Driver makes a huge difference on any track, but on this track you need a true "Ringmeister" or VERY gifted driver like Jan Magnussen (who is the primary reason the Z06 got the time it did, with a Le Mans winning pro GT driver and full factory suppport) to get the best time.

If there are only a few true trials of testicular fortitude left in the world, this is definitely one of them.

Oni I'm surprised less cars broke the seven minute mark. Didn't the Skyline make its mark on that track by hitting a coveted time before many other supercars before it?

JohnMichael Gotcha...still, it's the thought that counts.

Carrera26 Oh, I'm not going to take credit for this one. Jacked it from Supercars.net for use in an argument on the Autoweek forums.

Updated Nurburgring lap times...

People freak out about lap times a lot more than they should for street cars, as good and fast on the track and good and fast on the street are not always the same thing. Also, note who is driving them as having Jan Magnussen (top-tier pro sportscar racer, and C6R Le Mans pilot) drive your C6 means quite a bit better time than having a guy from a magazine (like Sport Auto's Ford GT drive) drive it, even if he is very accomplished.

Some things I did notice though.

Luxurious RS4 sedan faster than C6 Z51...
Focus ST faster than Focus RS/MkV GTI DSG
