ZR-1 pricing and 0-60

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone know why in the HELL you still have to pay $10K extra for leather-wrapped interior and other high-end features in this car?

Every ZR-1 should come fully loaded. Otherwise, what's the point? So you can offer a "price leader?" Gimmee a break.....

And it doesn't matter if some people "would rather not have the leather dash or extra features".......because Chevy will sell each and every ZR-1 they can....easily....regardless of how much it's loaded up or not....

:blink:

This would be a lottery purchase for me - one of the first things I'd buy in fact.

See any of the idiotic posts after that story? Some real gems post on that site. :rolleyes:

BTW: Who gives a rat's ass about the leather option?

Because they want to make a statement with the combination of both it's Ferrari-like performance and with how much less it costs. $10K is about 10% of total vehicle cost, so that's substantial. But don't worry, I don't expect they'll sell a lot that don't have leather.

They are very nice up close and in person. Not behind a rope or on a stand. They had 3 of them here yesterday at the GM car show, a yellow one, a blue one, and the cyber grey. Very cool!!

You mean to tell me that in the face of it.....$113K isn't JUST as impressive a value for this car as $103K?

Just seems stupid to me.

Weight savings of not having the leather wrapped dash?

With the power and torque this thing has, you think a leather dash or some optional goodies are gonna slow it down?

:rolleyes:

hehe i love the middle schoolers arguing on that site. the viper this the vette that. truth is they raced a viper a Z06 and a ford GT the viper was third in almost everything. it only out accelerated the z06 but i mean hello more engien. the viper was almost 1.5 seconds behind the vette on the road course and a full 2 seconds or more behind the gt. the vette won over all only because of price and daily drivability. now i would really like to see a gtr zr1 gt and a viper square off. that would be interesting. i think the post that takes the cake though would be this guy

"Now the Viper ACR is *** HOT, BUT THE ZR1 IS THE BEST THING SINCE THE FORD GT. NOW THAT WOULD BE A RACE, FORD GT VS CHEVY ZR1, THROW A VIPER IN IF YOU MUST, GTR'S WOULD GET SPANKED EXCEPT ON A TRACK BUT THE GT ZR1 AND VIPER HAVE FAR MORE ADVANCED AND POWERFUL ENGINES, NISSAN TOOK THE FAGGET'S WAY OUT, TURBO CHARGE A CHEAP WEAK V6, GIVE IT 4 WHEEL DRIVE AND LOSE AS LITTLE POWER POSSIBLE FROM ENGINE TO WHEEL, ITS LIKE KUNG FU V.S WRESTING."

some people need a clue and not one garnered from gran turismo or forza

I may be wrong but that comparison was before the Viper's MCE wasn't it?

Anyway, I would opt for the leather but some peopel want to save wait at any cost...so just check off the damn "leather package" box if you want it so much and be done with it. Some of you act as though it's not available or anything, calm down.
