Just read the article. WHOA, this car is BAD. I did find it ironic that Motor Trend was "rooting for the home team on this one" considering the recent naming of that Toyota Turdra as "truck of the year". I think anyone with a cool 100K laying around would prolly pony up for this King of all Vettes. I know I would! Anybody got 100K they can front me???:D

Like Lincoln at Gettysburg, General Motors chairman Rick Wagoner uttered but a few select words to inspire a whole new Chevrolet Corvette. Reacting to plans for the $65,800 Z06 outlined by chief engineer Tadge Juechter no score and three years ago, Wagoner mused, "I wonder what this team could do for $100,000?"

The answer is the 2009 Corvette ZR1, engineered to be the most powerful, best performing, highest priced Chevy in history.

Read the full story in the February issue of Automobile Magazine. For now, check out the specs from GM and our photo gallery full of wallpaper-quality images.

  • All-new LS9 supercharged 6.2L V-8 targeted at producing at least 100 horsepower per liter, or 620 horsepower (462 kW), and approximately 595 lb.-ft. of torque (823 Nm)
  • Six-speed, close-ratio, race-hardened manual transmission
  • New, high-capacity dual-disc clutch
  • Higher-capacity and specific-diameter axle half-shafts; enhanced torque tube
  • Specific suspension tuning provides more than 1g cornering grip
  • Twenty-spoke 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels
  • Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires--P285/30ZR19 in front and P335/25ZR20 in the rear--developed specifically for the ZR1
  • Standard carbon-ceramic, drilled disc brake rotors--15.5-inch-diameter (394-mm) in the front and 15-inch-diameter (380-mm) in the rear
  • Larger brake calipers with substantially increased pad area
  • Standard Magnetic Selective Ride Control with track-level suspension
  • Wider, carbon-fiber front fenders with ZR1-specific dual vents
  • Carbon-fiber hood with a raised, polycarbonate window--offering a view of the intercooler below it
  • Carbon-fiber roof panel, roof bow, front fascia splitter and rocker moldings with clear-coated, exposed carbon-fiber weave
  • ZR1-specific full-width rear spoiler with raised outboard sections
  • Specific gauge cluster with boost gauge (also displayed on the head-up display) and 220-mph (370 km/h) speedometer readout
  • Only two options: chrome wheels and a "luxury" packageCurb weight of approximately 3,350 pounds (1,519 kg)
