I think I just had an orgasm...

Seriously, that gray ZR1 + me in the seat is about as close to heaven as I could ever get (That is; until I killed myself trying to peg the 220MPH speedo :))

2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1 photos #1-15

These two photos somehow make me think of this:

DellXPSM1730Blue.JPG

Which by itself is an amazing piece of machinery to come from that maligned American Computer Manufacturer.

Jake

Jake is my leader and hero.

He stands for the team moto "Take No Prisoners" for the Pratt & Miller C6-R Racing team. He was first seen back in 2005 at Lemans and has grown with the team and now it looks like Chevy has embraced him offically.

Before when I wore my Jake hat people looked at me like an old Goth, now they will really know what it means.

I say Jake for president in 08.

Checke out the new High Performance Pontiac Magazine. The cover shot is done by some guy neamed Brad May from GM for a new book on the design center.

THey did a photo shoot fo 3 judges infront of Cony Island on Woodward. The photo came out great and the book by GM is due this coming year.

I know the guy with the blue GTO and it is a great car. Jeff has helped me on some Pontiac prototype parts I have and got me intouch with the right people at the design center to help.

Anyway this Brad is a GM photg and I hope they let him do more main line shots in the future. I wonder if he did these.

Yeah, but that's not the focus of the car. If you want a supercar with a great interior, then you're looking at Ferrari and Lambo, but if you want a car with all the performance at a lower price tag, then you want a ZR1. With that in mind, the interior sort of takes a back seat and should. It would be very un-Corvette if they jacked up the price another $40K to make the interior outstanding.

To me, this thing is pretty awesome. Enough is different that you'll know it's a ZR1, but you'll also know it's a Corvette. I also love the fact that the spedometer goes to over 200 mph...nice touch.

So who is going to guess the closest dyno? I'm putting a dyno guess at 620 WHP.

I can't believe it doesn't have a cancel button for the cruise control. GM still doesn't get it.

:lol:

I'm with you, NOS. This thing is probably waaay underrated.

Not surprising. I was guessing about 675 hp, under rated with the amount and type of hardware existing.
