2009 Corvette ZR1 posts 205 mph top speed
By: Tadge J. Juechter<br />Corvette Chief Engineer<br /><br />I know many of you are interested in the latest details on the new Corvette ZR1. We’ve been working on the car for a while now and recently, we decided to put the pedal to the metal and see just how fast it could go.<br /><br />On a cool day with light wind in early April, the Corvette Development Engineering team took it to the test track in Papenburg, Germany. The ZR1, with its 638 horsepower supercharged LS9 V-8 engine, clocked in at a staggering 205 miles an hour (330 km/h). We’re thrilled with the results and excited for it to hit the streets. We even brought a camera along for the ride to document our experience. Check out the video posted.
