I was invited to a private testing on a closed circuit, several brands were available. And of course Chevrolet took his C6.
They would not allow us to drive the car, but assigned a pilot to give you a couple of laps around the track.
I can only tell you that the experience was awsome, the first pilot took the car almost to the edge, adrenaline was running everywhere and then the laps finished.
I signed again for another couple of laps and when my turn was on, they asigned another pilot. I thought that this one would just give a fast ride, so I teased him a little so his proud was higher .
Wow, this was unexpected, the pilot had rally experience and took the car all the way to the limit, acceleration was incredible, like a superbike maybe, braking forces would make your eyeballs hang out, and cornering was just incredible, as if the car was stuck to the ground almost all the time, but there were a couple of corners where he would slide the car at very high speed and that felt just awsome.
I could see the speedometer a couple of times reach the 160 mph mark!
This was a great car and it was not the Z06, and the testing took place at very high altitude, about 6800 feet above sea level!
I can only tell you that If you have the means that is the car to buy! Or better yet, a Z06.
