Another video showing what is believed to be the C7 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 lapping the Nürburgring has arrived online and in the video, the mysterious Corvette gets around the track with traffic in roughly 7 minutes and 30 seconds – although that number is far from any sort of official time and the official time will almost certainly be quicker. Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com.

We don’t actually know for sure, officially, that General Motors is planning to offer a C7 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, but it is no secret that the automaker is working on something a bit spicier than the current Z06. There have been tons of spy shots and videos showing the camouflaged C7 Corvette test car working out around the United States with a huge rear wing and more recently, video has hit the internet showing this mysterious Corvette test car working out at the famed Nürburgring.

The Nürburgring videos of what we believe to be the C7 Corvette Z06 gave us our clearest look yet at the extreme aero setup of this higher performance Chevy supercar while also letting us hear the engine in a variety of different situations.

The video that we bring you today offers many of those same advantages, with lots of great sound clips coupled with a good look at the car from every angle – including the add-on exhaust silencers – but this video has a unique feature. The guy filming the action from the side of the track had a timer running as the Corvette made its way around the track and with this completely informal way of timing, the car which might be the next ZR1 made it around the Nürburgring in around 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
