"That's the best braking performance of any production car GM has ever tested," the automaker said in a statement.
C7 Z06 cornering performance is similarly improved, reaching 1.2 g of lateral acceleration and helping beat the C6 ZR1's Milford Road Course record by a full second. In contrast, the C6 lineup topped out at 1.13 g.
All of the tests were performed with the Z07 package, with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
