Chevy Corvette Zr1
So, you probably read our first-drive review of the Chevy Corvette ZR1. (But ICYMI, check it out.) And there was a pretty astonishing video at the bottom of the post. We'd like to point it out to you again in case you overlooked it. In our review, one thing's for sure, we did not drive the ZR1 at 212 mph. But Chevy did.
The Indianapolis 500 is getting back-to-back Corvette pace cars. After a Corvette Grand Sport led the pack last year, a Corvette ZR1 will lead this year. The ZR1's participation means that it will be the 15th Corvette to pace the Indy 500. It will also be the 29th Chevy to do so.
The 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 is a car of superlatives. It's faster and more powerful than any other production Corvette ever to roll out of Bowling Green. It's the ultimate iteration of what Chevy's been building for 65 years. Thanks to CorvetteBlogger.com and Corvette Production Manager Harlan Charles, we finally have the official figures: 0-60 mph in 2.85 seconds, 0-100 mph in 6 seconds and the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 134 mph.

One's massive, while the other is more subdued.
A new spy video shows several 2018 Chevy Corvette ZR1 prototypes testing. One hardtop is followed by two convertibles, with multiple rear wing options.
Although it's still covered in camouflage, this is the clearest look at the C7 Chevy Corvette ZR1 prototype yet. And it's got some serious aero bits.
It may not be wearing its massive rear wing, but this Chevy Corvette ZR1 prototype still offers our best look yet at the car's rear end.
