The ZR1 is unmistakably recognizable with its raised, carbon fiber hood, Corvette crossed flags embossed on the front on the car and steamroller-wide tires. The carbon fiber front fender and rear spoiler with the high-mounted stop lamp are a unique feature, exclusive to the ZR1.

When it was launched in 2009 with a V8 engine, it was the fastest and most powerful car ever produced by GM, achieving a top speed of 200mph and 620hp. The lightweight components enhanced high speed stability while the Eaton supercharger pushes air to support the engine’s high-horsepower aspiration.

For a performance, refinement and a supercar that delivers, get the Corvette ZR1 into your garage today! Now available in the Car Dealer!
