Corvette ZR1 news — Cheap as fries - 2008

Read more on:

Sometimes, we wish we lived in America.
Not always, but sometimes. Like when we discover that the Corvette ZR1 will
cost $103,300 to those living stateside.

That’s about £52,000… for a 620bhp V8
that’ll hit 60mph in just 3.4 seconds, 100mph in seven dead and not top out
until 203mph.

What do we get for 50 grand over here? A
BMW M3? A well-specced Cayman S? OK, they’re both good cars… but we want
620bhp. And we want it now.

And don’t go thinking that, should a few
ZR1s make it to our shores, that they’ll actually cost £52,000. Even the
measly Z06 - 498bhp? We laugh at 498bhp - costs 62 grand, so you’re looking at
70-plus to get your hands on GM’s most powerful car ever.

And that’s before you’ve specified the
chrome wheels. Which you will.

Let’s all
move to America. Unless you already live there… in which case can we say on
your floor for a while?
