Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
The new ZR1’s LT5 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine rates a stunning 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. The C7 ZR1’s standard transmission will be a 7-speed manual gearbox; however, an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters will also be available — the first time a ZR1 will be offered with an automatic transmission. This ZR1 boasts the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle; top speed is expected to exceed 210 mph. Of course, stopping power is just as vital as horsepower, and the ZR1 delivers. Massive 15-inch carbon-ceramic brake rotors occupy all four corners. Up front are 6-piston aluminum calipers, with 4-piston calipers in the rear. The all-new Corvette ZR1 goes on sale this spring. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price for the ZR1 coupe is $119,995. The convertible MSRP will start at $123,995.
