Back in 2009, when the Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1 was revealed, the vehicle pretty much stunned the car world. It was an American muscle car that could tear it up on both the drag strip & the racetrack, but also, show its true colors whenever somebody challenge it on the city streets. Now, over a decade later, this car is still considered by many as the epitome of American muscle car performance, giving more than just acceleration and straight line speed – even by today’s standards.
This generation Corvette ZR1 features a supercharged 6.2 Liter LS9 V8 engine delivering 647 horsepower and 604 lb⋅ft (819 N⋅m) of torque. It can sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 3.4 seconds. It will do a 1/4 of a mile in just 11.4 seconds at 129.3 miles per hour. The ZR1 will sprint a top speed of 205mph (330km/h). In turn, the vehicle could achieve impressive tracking times.
Sitting behind the wheel was Jim Mero, the General Motors development engineer, taking the stock Corvette ZR1 around the Nürburgring, achieving a track time of 7:26.4. During that time, that was significantly faster than the 7:29 lap set by the Nissan GT-R – one of the fastest road-legal cars during that time. Furthermore, the vehicle was also touted as one of the best handling supercars out there. In turn, that made the ZR1 one of the most coveted vehicles out there – something that’s true even today.
The owner of this particular Corvette ZR1 gave his supercar an upgrade in the wheel department. Namely, the owner went with a set of CCW Classic 40-bolt wheels in the front and CCW Classic Beadlock wheels in the rear. in turn, the vehicle now looks better, but also, performs better both on and off the track. The wheels are sized 19×10 and 17×11 in the front and rear, respectively. Furthermore, the owner is running tires sized 275/30/19 in the front and 315/35/17 in the rear.
