This is the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. This is the third time for the ZR-1 designation, first used in 1970-72, then again in 1990-95, and again for this C6 generation Corvette. While the ZO6 was incredibly capable, the ZR1 had improvements throughout the vehicle. The engine is an LS9 supercharged 6.2 V-8 engine rated at 638 horsepower and around 600 lb./ft of torque. The horsepower is assisted by the addition of a large, positive-displacement Eaton TVS R2300 supercharger with intercoolers on each cylinder bank. It also features a stronger six-speed manual transmission fitted with a twin-disc clutch, a sixth-gear that actually helped to achieve top speed. The vented and cross-drilled rotors on the ZR1 are 15.5 inches and 15 inches in diameter in the rear, making them among the largest carbon-ceramic rotors on any production vehicle. When new, Motor Trend clocked the 0-60 mph time at 3.3 seconds, and an 11.2-second quarter-mile at 130.5 mph.
Our Jetstream Blue car has only 10 miles from new. The Black interior is upgraded with the $10,000 3ZR package which included power-adjustable, heated and leather-trimmed sports seats, Bose premium audio system, a navigation system, Bluetooth, leather-wrapped interior appointments. This is one of 1,415 built for 2009.
