The ZR1 is the ultimate expression of Corvette’s technology-driven performance legacy, which stretches six decades. That milestone is commemorated in 2013 with an available 60th Anniversary Design Package. It is also the final year for the current “C6” generation of the Corvette.
Corvette ZR1 is the fastest production model ever offered by General Motors, with a top speed of 205 mph. A supercharged, hand-assembled 6.2L LS9 engine and suite of advanced performance technologies, including Performance Traction Management and Magnetic Selective Ride Control, are the elements behind the highest-performing Corvette in history.
Capability of the ZR1 is maximized with the available PDE performance package, which is highlighted by Michelin ® Pilot ® Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires. When combined with Performance Traction Management (PTM) technology – which manages torque delivery for maximum performance – the tires offer up to an 8-percent gain in maximum lateral acceleration, to 1.13g, and improved braking distance.
The PDE package’s effectiveness was demonstrated in 2012 with a new lap time of 7:19.63 around Germany’s legendary Nürburgring, which improved on the ZR1’s previous benchmark there by more than six seconds.
