BASE GTR vs ZR1 at the top gear track

What a shock, the ZR1 got its butt kicked again, and not even by the Spec-V, Spec Nur, or Spec Nismo, but by the BASE model. ZR1 is overpriced garbage.
The laps are at the end of the videos.

This is a RIGGED test the ZR1 has lost in all other tests in all other magazines in the 1/4 mile to the GTR Spec-V and the Ferrari 599. The 599 has also consistently destroyed the ZR1 in top speed tests.
It's the BASE GTR in your stupid video anyway(why not the Spec Nismo or Spec Nur?) the GTR Spec V beats the ZR1 in all 1/4 mile tests in Edmunds, Car and Driver, etc. The Ferrarri 599 also beats the ZR1 in the 1/4 mile and in TOP SPEED in all magazines where they were tested. Car and Driver got an 11.5 1/4 mile and a 3.4 0-60 for the ZR1 and a 1.07g rating on the skidpad.

In Edmunds test the ZR1 got an 11.5 second 1/4 mile, and on Car and Driver's test, the ZR1 ALSO got an 11.5 second 1/4 mile. The GTR spec V got a 3.2 second 0-60 and an 11.4 second 1/4 mile in Edmund's test and 11.3 in Road and Track's test. Whenever you compare the times from the SAME MAGAZINE, the Spec V ALWAYS beats the ZR1 in the 1/4 mile on the skidpad, and in 0-60. GT channel got an 11.0 SECOND FLAT 1/4 mile time. Show me ONE single magazine or or Video Magazine that has an 11.0 second 1/4 mile time for the ZR1. The ZR1 is HUGELY OUTCLASSED. Look at 6:17 in the GT channel's test.

Biggest problem with the SPEC V ; is that it doesn't say C_O_R_V_E_T_T_E anywhere on the car. :P

Styling is a subjective thing, but I'll bet 9 out of 10 would say the 'Vette is the more attractive.

9 out of 10 Corvette owners anyway.
That said, Sal, nobody give a shit about the GTR. Not Nissan owners, not Corvette owners. You want one, you buy one and go drive around town racing 'vettes.
Nissan would make owners would be happier if they just owned up to the issues in their cars and built better vehicles for the average owner.
