It managed to do a lap of the epic Nordschleife in 7:19.63, which is 6 seconds faster than their previous record which was set three years ago. In order to shave off those seconds, the top-spec ZR1 model has been fitted with the PDE performance package that sports a full-width rear spoiler that improves aerodynamics, along with a brand new set of Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure rubbers from Michelin.
