CHEVROLET Corvette ZR1   2018 2022
2018 2022

The 2018 ZR1 was the most powerful Corvette ever made to that date and also the most technologically advanced.
Corvette had a long history behind it. Even though its first generation was not the most powerful car on the market, its successors started to grow and develop more power and torque. They became more and more athletic and sportier. The 2018 model was also the last Corvette with the engine mounted in the front. It might be called the last classic ZR1 model.

Unlike its siblings, the ZR1 was easy to spot due to its hole in the hood and the carbon-fiber case for the supercharger. The engine was so tall that it couldn’t fit in the engine bay, so the designers made a cut and passed it through. If the track-package was installed, the car featured various carbon-fiber elements at the front and on the sides, plus a massive wing on the back. It was mounted on the rear panel, not on the trunk-lid. Its light-alloy wheels were unique for the ZR1, with 19” at the front and 20” for the rear axle.

Inside, Chevrolet tried to make things better than before. There was no cheap plastic anymore. Depending on the options, the ZR1 could have been fitted with Alcantara on the ceiling. Its regular sport-bucket seats could have been replaced with the race-bucket ones, which featured integrated headrests and passages for a four-point harness.

The 2018 ZR1 featured an adaptive dampers system with magnetorheological shocks. The electronically controlled Limited Slip Differential helped the car corner faster than any other Corvette in history. Its 6.2-liter supercharged engine produced a massive 765 hp and 969 Nm (715 lb-ft) of torque, which were sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

CHEVROLET Corvette ZR1   2008 2013
2008 2013

The 2008 ZR1 was the fastest production Corvette ever to that date and, moreover, was the quickest car in its price range.
While the ZR lettering dated back to the ’70s, it was the ’90s model that stirred more emotions. The 2008 ZR1 was the true King of the Hill among its brothers, and it was quicker than the much-famed Ferrari F430 from the same era. While it wasn’t the best car on cornering, it was a hard-to-catch one on the drag-strip or in straight-line acceleration.

The Corvette followed the same principles as before: light, aerodynamic bodywork, and functional scoops on the sides. At the front of the car, a nose-scoop allowed more air to get to the supercharger covered by a transparent polycarbonate window area on the hood. It was the most extravagant idea made by GM designers for the beloved American supercar. In the coupe shape, the carbon-fiber roof featured two outgrows for the driver and the passenger.

Inside, the Corvette featured a modern-looking interior with an integrated infotainment system installed on the wide center stack. The tall center console hosted the short gear-stick, the handbrake, and a storage compartment big enough for a quick trip to the race-track. Its high-bolstered sport seats offered great lateral support.

From the technical point of view, the ZR1 was more than just a Corvette with a more powerful engine. Its reinforced rear axle, the magnetic ride control, and the limited-slip differential were part of the package. A state-of-the-art fuel injection system fueled the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, and the six-speed manual was the only option.
