If you're an American buyer exasperated at trying to actually secure yourself a new Corvette ZR1 at its $105k sticker price without mark-up and dealer speculation, be glad you live on this side of the pond and not the other. Corvette sales in Europe are not handled in-house by GM, but by Kroymans, a Dutch importer, which has revealed its price for the new uber-Vette: a whopping 136,000 euros, equivalent to over $214,000 USD at the moment. The price includes shipping, gas-guzzler tax and an advanced driving course, and puts the new super Vette firmly into Ferrari territory. With demand rising and only 70 ZR1s reaching Europe this year – and an additional 150 in subsequent full years – Kroymans may get its asking price, just so long as they don't park it at the local Chevrolet dealership next to the Matiz and Aveo.
