Super car? ha not until we have real #s beyond a figure 8

How about VIR? Does that qualify as a big name track.? The Z06 was easily the fastest at this year's Car and Drivers Lightning lap, and placed 5th fastest overall on the all time leaderboard. Cars like the Senna, 765LT, gt2rs weissach and AMG black series were the only cars faster on a lap.

Surprising to see no BMWs on the top 20 list.

I'll say it again, supercar it is, and the lap times are nothing to yawn at.
Nice, finally a number.

Also, Corvettes will never be super cars. Super car killers in the performance dept? Yes, that is nothing new.

I will point out the 4 cars quicker are all forced induction. GM doing this normally aspirated is quite cool.

They're actually not pro-drivers. They're the journalists at the magazine who run the laps. Some of the manufacturers will have a test driver lap the cars prior to the LL and give them a goal to understand what the car is capable of.
Case in point, this year's Cadillac CT-4 BW was 2 seconds slower than the GM test driver. They report the lap time the magazine journalist gets and not the GM test driver.

I'm buying one (Should get the call to place my order in the next few months) so how am I bitter again?

It's a mass produced Chevy with the same interior as the base car. Super car performance for less $ new v new? Yes. That's what the Vette has been for generations now.

It's still not a super car itself.

Good day

Here's a nicely equipped one for sale near me for a very reasonable $142k considering the epic price gouging taking place.

Just called, it's online for sticker and according to them the last one went for 220k over sticker (or maybe they mean 220k) and they are expecting this one to go for about the same, "taking offers."

As long as GM makes all the customers whole on ADMs if the engine blows 50 miles from the dealership.
