Imagine yourself behind the wheel of a sports
car. You belt up, grip the leather steering wheel
in the classic ten-and-two formation and plant
the pedal to the floor. The road in front of you
disappears–fast; 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds
and you’re only in first gear. Pretty incredible
right? You’ve just imagined yourself behind the
wheel of the new 2011 Corvette ZR-1.
Chevrolet’s constant pursuit for perfection has resulted in spectacular outcomes for the 2012 Corvette range. Not only does it look magnificent, it’s bursting with features that blend seamlessly to deliver the ultimate American muscle has to offer. With an amazing 638 horsepower, the ZR-1 features a Supercharged LS9 engine and combines staggering power with seemingly impossible efficiency. The incorporation of high-strength, light-weight materials wherever possible, contributes to an outstanding power-to-weight ratio. Features including the magnesium engine cradle, fixed roof structure, as well as carbon-fibre front fenders and floorboards, ensure optimum performance by delivering the lightest-weight Corvette yet.
The evolution doesn’t stop there either. The engine now engages lightweight titanium intake valves and connecting rods, as well as a high-performance, dry-sump oil system, which is designed to distribute pressurised oil in order to protect vital components under high-g driving conditions. Speed and seemingly effortless acceleration, is undoubtedly the signature feature of the new Corvette. With recorded top speeds of 318km/h (Z06) and 329km/h (ZR-1), the 2011 range not only lives up to Corvette’s already impressive reputation, it exceeds it! This is the fastest Corvette of all time.
Almost as amazing as the Corvette’s increased efficiency and acceleration capacity, is the unbelievable stopping power. Featuring carbon-ceramic brake rotors by Brembo, weighing in at almost half the weight of castiron equivalents and capable of operating in temperatures of 1000° Celsius without warping, the Corvette is packed with as much control as it is power.
And if you’re wondering what the Corvette’s interior has to offer, get ready to be impressed. Standard features include dual zone climate control, seven speaker CD/MP3 Bose® sound system, leather-appointed bucket seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and vehicle anti-theft system, just to name a few. With an interior that is every bit as breathtaking as the head-turning exterior, remarkable efficiency and awe-inspiring power, it’s no wonder the 2011 Corvette is attracting attention.
