USD pricing has been announced for the ultimate General Motors vehicle. Chevrolet’s Corvette ZR1 has been locked in at $103,300. However, every buyer is going to pay another $1,700 for the gas guzzler tax. Beyond that, some customers will choose chrome wheels at $2,000. Apart from that, options appear limited to a massive package. $10,000 nets you improved seats, better stereo, navi, and more cowhide.
For the purpose of this comparison, forget the options that limit the price of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to $105,000. Position the Corvette Z06, basic Corvette, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 GT3, and the least expensive Chevrolet in America alongside. In the USA, those cars are priced at $72,125; $46,950; $69,850; $107,500; and $10,895, respectively. The Numbers you’ll want to understand the horsepower/$ quotient for these cars are listed below.
Don’t ignore the fact that there’s plenty more involved in producing a performance car than placing a huge engine under the hood. Chevrolet engineered many significant improvements into the Z06 version of the Corvette before even more significant changes to the ZR1. Horsepower is only one element.
