First Drive: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Post by koimaster » April 23rd 2018, 4:41pm

Not content with the kidney-flattening supercharged LT4 engine that kicks out 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque in the Corvette Z06, the new ZR1 has a super-supercharged LT5 V-8 spitting 755 hp @ 6,300 rpm and 715 lb-ft @ 4,400 rpm. You don't need your kidneys, anyway. Certified top speed is 212.49 mph, which came from a two-way average (215 mph/210 mph). Chevy informed us the ZR1 is "restricted" to a top speed of 215 mph to be within tire-safety standards. So, let's recap: "Restricted to 215 mph," base price of $119,995.00 for the coupe (actually $122,095 when you add the $2,100 gas guzzler tax) and $126,095 for the convertible, and it's a "street" car. I'm now thinking: "Big fat club, with bells on."

Well except for the rice burner rear wing..............



Agreed. On the other hand, fuck the wing, it does not even look close to the master wing. :sarc:
