Visit to the GM Proving Ground in Milford
One of the most secret facilities on earth!
That's "Black Lake" - 72 acres of perfectly flat, level blacktop.
All the 2012 models were on display, plus...
The Nurburgring ZR1! Yes, I sat in it! The velcro on the navigation screen held the walkey-talkey for the ride. That's driver Jim Mero in the orange.
Jim took several very lucky people for rides in a ZR1. If only you could hear it!
Old friend, GM Powertrain's Bill Nichols talks about the challenges of engine design for high g-force conditions.
The roads back out to the real world.
