The New Corvette ZR1. Visit our inventory of all-new Corvette ZR1



Fastest production car in GM history



 

Corvette ZR1 (very limited availablity) tested at 205 mph on the test track. It's powered by a 6.2L LS9 V8 engine equipped with a four lobe Eaton Twin Vortices Series supercharger with intercooler. Total power output is 638 SAE certified hp with 604lb ft of torque




ZR1 power to weight ratio



 

ZR1 engineers were passionate about maintaining a favorable power-to-weight ratio. So they specified high-strength, lightweight materials wherever possible including magnesium and carbon fiber. One example is the aluminum frame structure (the same one used on the C6.R race car), which weighs 138 lbs. less than an equivalent steel structure. Result: a power-to-weight ratio of 5.2 lbs. per horsepower.




Visible carbon fiber body components


 

The ZR1 6.2-liter LS9 supercharger is a thing of pure engineering beauty. That’s why we like to show it off. The Carbon Fiber hood includes a window above the supercharger allowing for easy viewing and a powerful incorporation into the exterior design. Combined with its visible Carbon Fiber elements such as the roof, roof bow, splitter and rockers, the aggressive and chiseled style of ZR1 reflects its roots in racing.




Lay down the power like a pro


 

Corvette is born of modern technology options such as Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ and Brembo® Carbon Ceramic Brakes, but Corvette also includes modern technology features that keep you connected to your life. For even more convenience, the Technology Package included on 3ZR brings together many of the most popular infotainment features. Fully integrating the Magnetic Selective Ride Control™, Traction Control and Active Handling systems, Performance Traction Management (PTM) enhances race-track performance and consistency. PTM manages the vehicle’s acceleration based on conditions and the driver’s selection, and offers five different modes to optimize performance based on driving styles and conditions.




XM, CD, MP3, Navigation and More


 

It’s Hard to imagine anything that could make driving a Corvette better. But now you can checkout over 170 digital channels with three trial months of XM Radio standard on every Corvette, or a one year subscription on select models. Also, choose from several audio system options, including a Bose seven speaker sound system, depending on model. Select models even offer a navigation system that provides information on screen, verbally or via the Head Up Display to help you keep your eyes on the road.




The only brakes capable of taming 638hp


 

Massive stopping power. That's what you get with the standard  ZR1 (very limited availablity) Brembo Brakes. They feature carbon ceramic rotors that weight almost 50 percent less than equivalent cast iron units. The system employs six piston and four piston rear calipers engaging vented and cross drilled rotors.


Key features for the new Corvette ZR1 include:



To mark this milestone in the Corvette story, the available Corvette 60th Anniversary Design Package will be available on all 2013 Corvette models. Showcased here on the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible, this package boasts an Arctic White exterior and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with sueded-microfiber accents. The optional graphics package adds a classic track-ready appearance with full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue.
