Watch The Fastest Production Corvette Clock Its Record Speed
We obtained a video documenting the moment Corvette ZR1 reached its fastest speed on the ground, among copies that were sold in the global markets, without adding any mechanical modifications to it.
Although the entire new eighth generation of Chevrolet Corvette cars was launched last July as a 2020 model car, the ZR1 version of the C7 Corvette is still by far the most powerful production Corvette car in history.
Before showing you this new video, we would like to remind you that our colleague Suhaib Shashaa has previously test-driven a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in a previous episode of Special Coverage program.
Watch the moment Corvette ZR1 reached its top speed:
According to what this video showed, the ZR1 version of the Corvette C7 reached a speed higher than its official top speed as announced by the company, as the American sports car’s speedometer, during its test on the Johnny Bohmer track, reached a speed of 344.5 km / h (214 mph), making the car win the title of “The fastest production Corvette in history so far”.
According to the official information available to our team at ArabGT, this Corvette was able to reach this tremendous speed legally on the track after covering a distance of 4.3 km (2.7 miles).
As a reminder, these are the specifications of the most powerful and fastest Corvette in history (without modifications):
The Corvette ZR1 is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine that produces 755 hp and 969 Newton meters of torque and is connected to a seven-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic. The rear-wheel-drive car accelerates from zero to a speed of 96 km / h (60 mph) in 2.85 seconds, and a speed of 160 km / h in 6 seconds, and to a top speed of 341 km / h for its coupe version.
