Lightning Lap: America's Nurburgring Battle


Home to manufacturers’ test mules, wanna-be racers, and Sabine Schmitz; der Nürburgring has also become the fantasy proving grounds where bench racers all across the internet refer to determine which car is t3h best!!1. But the boys at Car und Driver think America needs its own yardstick. So, for four years in a row now, they’ve brought all the newest hot metal out to VIR’s (that’s Virginia International Raceway) Grand West circuit to find out who’s king of the hill. Lucky us, it looks that they brought some onboard video cameras along with them this time … and a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV … and a Corvette ZR1.

We won’t spoil the rest for you, so just sit back and watch these hot laps for yourself.
