With a 0-60 mph time of just 2.85 seconds, we already knew that the 755-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is quick as the devil. But let's not forget it's also the fastest 'Vette ever, and Chevrolet just released video of the test runs proving its 212 mph top speed. Here's the thing, though: Because a vehicle's top speed is determined by an average of two runs in opposite directions to account for wind, the ZR1 actually hit 214.88 mph on its first loop of the 7.6-mile Papenburg test track in Germany. But with the second pass clocking in 210.2 mph, the official result stands at 212—indeed the fastest Corvette to ever rumble out of the gates at Bowling Green. The video gives us the forward point-of-view overlaid with a speedometer, tachometer, and a small screen showing the two engineers tasked with making history in a standard-wing ZR1 (the already-iconic big wing is designed for road course duty). The image is probably stabilized a bit, but it's still remarkable how utterly composed the ZR1 appears as it blasts out of the banked turns and crosses the 200 mph mark on the straights. Things look downright serene in that cabin.
