Wanna know why the Z/28 isn't making a sound while the 6th gen is screeching like crazy.

Take a look at these two screen grabs. Z/28 is much lower to the ground, and seems to have much less body roll....it looks far superior here (which is to be expected).

That said, we don't know how much speed each car was carrying through this turn. The 6th gen looked to be pushing pretty hard and could have been carrying a bit more speed than the Z/28 (this was from the 2nd time the 6th gen went by, not the first) but who knows.

Also...I know the camo throws it off, but the 6th gen sure does seem to be hair taller bodywise, and not as wide. Makes sense I guess as the ATS alpha platform width is also slimmer than the 5th gen right? eh....could be my imagination lol.

The shot of the 6th gen is zoomed in vs the 1LE (z/28?). So, it isn't your imagination but rather the photo that makes it seem taller, etc. IMO.

So, this may be a stupid question...but what was that random sedan chasing the Z06 at 0:39 - 0:41 in the video?

The Z/28 is a fully developed and extremely focused car. The 6th gen car is still a prototype.

It looks to me like the 6th gen will be narrower which makes it look taller.

Amazing audio.

Good to see that GM is using their track time wisely tuning the 6th Gen with the 1LE and Z/28 and there are no wasted laps at the 'Ring even for the Z06.

Hard to compare a 6th Gen prototype that likely is just an SS to the 5th Gen Z/28 that was practically built for lapping the Nurburgring.

I think what your seeing is that the 6th Gen prototype is actually taller in this scenario. Compared to a Z/28 again it's going to look tall. I'd venture to say this 6th Gen prototype is an SS with very street friendly suspension and tires.
There is also a slight optical illusion as the 6th Gen prototype in white camo devoid of a clear body definition and having the rear 3/4 windows covered makes the car looks taller than the red Z/28.

Although I would venture to say the 6th Gen may even have a slightly higher beltline than even the 5th Gen.

I sure hope so. They brought all the best from the fleet out there this time around.

Sounds terrific, and, is it me or it carries a lot of speed into the corner!!? Tires squeal, but it must be a base SS.

I'm guessing the 1LE is the handling benchmark for the gen 6 SS.
