Corvette ZR1 details
GM announces UK price tag and production numbers
The Corvette ZR1 officially hits the UK from next month, but you’ll be lucky to see one on the roads, never mind buy one. GM is planning single-figure annual sales on these shores, with only two ZR1s being delivered in 2008. Anyone who shells out the £109,000 price tag will received advanced driver training to learn how to handle their brand new 205mph, 6.2-litre V8 car which cracked the production car record time at the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife of 7min26.4sec. The cars will also come complete with a three-year, 60,000 mile warranty and three years of breakdown cover – a sensible concession on a mad car. While we bemoaned a £100k+ Corvette, how many other cars that go north of 200mph can be bought for this kind of money? And if you had a spare £109k, would you throw it Corvette’s way?
