    What road is that?

    Looks like a track but it had large vehicles on the slow lanes.

    The writing next to the video said it was a test track in Germany.

    Considering the Z06 will hit 201, and the ZR1 has almost 200hp on it, I'm surprised it didn't go faster than that. Unless maybe it just ran out of gear in 5th and doesn't have the power to go faster in 6th?

    I think with some lower range gears i'll go faster. I bet they got something like 3.73's or 4.10's in the rear.

    Actually I just looked it up, and they have a 3.42 rear with a .67 6th gear. So that means that in the video, the car was in 6th, and couldn't quite tach out. Redline on that motor is 6500, which is also where the hp peaks at 638, and to go 205 in 6th is slightly under 6000. I guess 638hp just isn't enough to go more than 205 in a vette. I think they need a 10% pulley and FMIC! Then they should be able to tach that thing out.
