Motor Trend Pushes Limits Of Corvette ZR1

Written by tonks on November 1, 2008

If you want your chance to test the Corvette ZR1 then you are going to have to get in line. Everyone is trying to get their hands on the new supercar and test its true potential for themselves. Not too long ago we wrote about Car&Drivers test with the supercar and how they took it around the track

Obviously it was a test that did not let anyone down – but a few people want a chance to test it themselves. This week Motor Trend tested the ZR1. They took it out on the Chrysler Proving Grounds where its 5 mile loop would allow them to reach the top speed that it boasted of.

They were able to crest to 200 mph and their MT computers showed that the supercar was able to reach the numbers that were reported earlier. The fact that it can reach up to 200 mph makes it worthy to compete with some of the top supercar. That and the fact that it can rev from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds make it almost exclusive to the market.

The MT testers reported that they were able to travel a quarter mile in 11.2 seconds at 130.5 mph. That is a total of 6.1 mph faster then the Dodge Viper.
