Chevrolet has put together a promotional video for the eagerly-anticipated Chevrolet Corvette Z06. If developing a mid-engine Stingray wasn't enough of a challenge, the iconic Z06 was fitted with a unique, flat-plane crank V8 developing 670 horsepower before being upgraded to handle better than ever. Part of guaranteeing that handling ability was a load of testing at Germany's most notorious track, but why did Corvette engineers spend so much time at the Nurburgring when they knew they already had a Stingray-beating machine?

And if the below video is anything to go by, everyone involved seems very excited about the possibilities of making the Europeans tremble.

Even if under lots of camouflage, it is clear that Porsche aims to build the most radical, track-focused Porsche 911 GT3 ever and most likely will aim for a new Nurburgring lap record.

As such, this edited version includes all the best parts of the cinematic debut in a more easy-to-watch and digestible five-minute format.

But while Subaru has a heavy rallying presence, its competition portfolio is broader than that. For example, though it hasn’t replaced BMW or Audi in Formula E, Subaru is investing more in electric racers. And with some help from Yamaha, it’s hitting the Nurburgring ground hard with the new Subaru STI E-RA Concept.
According to the engineers at McLaren, the Senna is the most responsive car they have ever built.
