Click above for high-res gallery of our ride in the Corvette ZR1

Chevrolet officially kicked off series production of the 2009 Corvette ZR1 at its Bowling Green KY assembly plant this week and decided to celebrate by inviting the media out to drive the new "King of the Hill". Since there are still several more waves of writers scheduled to drive the cars over the next week, we can't tell you what we thought of how it drives just yet. We can, however, share some photos of the cars we drove today around the Lutz-ring at General Motors' Milford Proving Ground. Stay tuned next Wednesday, August 20 for our full evaluation. In the meantime, enjoy the gallery and refresh your memory with our intro to the ZR1 from earlier this year.

      I'll break the embargo:

      Stiggy came by and shooed us off because it was his turn as the representive for Top Gear Magazine, but not before he tried to sucker-punch one of the guys because he looked like an Eagle Scout, and as you know, Stig is afraid of Boy Scouts.

      Great. $100,000 and it's got a Timex LCD display for the HVAC controls.

      Thats ok, we all know its bad ass and fast, we have seen the videos and time trials numerous times. The majority of us cant afford the sticker, most of whats left of us are not going to pay the ridiculous markup from there. IMHO, they should have made more of them, but considering similar production numbers, like the Viper, its a high number.

      You guys have such a cool job. Hate you...

      ...where do I send my resume?

        Certainly looks like it. I'll take one of them too.

        Yeah they brought five C4s from the heritage center including one of the active suspension cars and the DR-1
        • 6 Years Ago
        Indeed it is, the CHMSL gives it away for me. I think the wheels are unique too, but I wasn't too into the different wheel styles on the C4.

      Oh, great - now my keyboard case is filled with drool.... On the upside though, my rotating picture screensaver just doubled in size! Gorgeous car! Love it in red!

      Who wiped out in the black one? Check out the grass and peculiar absence of front splitter in one of those photos. Must have been those chumps at MT. Nice.
