Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in hot pursuit - click above image to watch the video

The blokes at Autocar got themselves a real live Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. What to do with it? Why not strap a camera to the back of a pretty fast car, and let the 638 hp supercharged LS9-engined beast chase you all over a test circuit like a great white hunting a seal? Or is that like a cheetah chasing down a gazelle? An eagle after a snake? A dogo argentino pursuing a wild boar? You get the idea -- the Zed Argh One is a killer and just toying with whatever's in front of its gaping maw. The lead vehicle will soon be killed and consumed, metaphorically speaking of course. And you're going to simply love what happens at 1:54. Have a watch, after the jump. Thanks to Jonathan for the tip.

      Isn't that the same track that TopGear and Fifth Gear use? I distinctly remember Tiff jumping a Jag in the same area. I could (and probably am) wrong though.

        It looks like Millbrook.

        I don't know about Fifth Gear but Top Gear certainly were on that track. It's Millbrook Proving Grounds. The Top Gear lorry challenge was held there for one.

      what track is that?

      As great a car as the ZR1 may be, it has absolutely zero presence in the vid with the SV. Boy is that thing badass, the very definition of exotic supercar.

      It's chasing a 670 SV, the full video is on their site.

      I don't like corvettes, never have and probably never will. They just don't do it for me. Having said that, I am deeply impressed that you can even utter the word Corvette in the same sentence as Lamborghini these days. Kudos to Chevrolet for making a serious contender in the supercar stakes.

      Stop guessing. It's a Murciélago SV640

        Spoiler don't F up the game for everyone.

      I never liked Corvettes, but this one... and this video... has changed my mind for sure. Beautiful idea, reminds me of the old NISMO Autech BCNR33 GT-R Sedan Video, which used the same filming principle for most of it:

      If anyone fancies finding out what was really in front...

      If you want a guess before looking there is only one brand of cars that sounds like that :)
