ZR1 Put to the Test: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Full Test
FOR FULL ARTICLE:
Brute force, a quality we can't help but assign to any car generating 638
horsepower, is by
definition anything but subtle. Yet the 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1 manages at
once to be both brutally quick and remarkably mild-mannered. Its
quarter-mile acceleration is quicker than any production car we've ever
tested, its chassis is benign but highly capable and its carbon-ceramic
brakes are mind-bending in their effectiveness. This new Vette offers an
unlikely combination of performance and real-world usability that we're
proud to experience in an American car.
This combination is as rare as truth in a presidential debate. Honestly,
most of the ZR1's competition (think Dodge Viper ACR) or Nissan GT-R)) is
less capable and makes a much larger compromise in typical road driving.
With the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 we have a machine that is engaging to
drive, capable of making insane numbers on the test track and also a
legitimate road car.

Vette Enough? Chevy Corvette Tested by Inside Line
FOLLOW-UP TEST BY EDMUNDS' INSIDE LINE:
Kicking GM while it's enduring the bitter sting of bankruptcy seems so
sophomoric. And so do the massive powerslides we've been doing in the
company's 2009 Chevrolet Corvette, so let's begin this review on a positive
note by discussing one of the Vette's finer points: Acceleration.
First thing you need to know: At wide-open throttle, the LS3 under the
Corvette's hood does subtlety like Jessica Simpson does brains. That is to
say, not so well — which is awesome, actually. Nailing the gas in this,
the tamest of Vettes, is akin to unleashing a thousand pushrod-wielding
Hulk Hogans on the car's rear tires. There's a blast of torque followed by
a double underhook suplex of forward force. It's as impressive as it is
surprising. This is, after all, only a base Corvette. But it's got motor.
The LS3 is possibly the best bargain in the world when it comes to eight
cylinders arranged in a vee, and it defines the modern Corvette. In our
hands it blasts this 3,275-pound coupe to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds (4.0
seconds with 1 foot rollout like on a drag strip). But it doesn't stop
there. The quarter-mile is incinerated in 12.3 seconds at 116 mph. The trip
from 100 to 120 mph takes 4 seconds flat — only 0.3 second slower than
the often-drooled-over and far costlier Nissan GT-R. And the fun continues,
according to Chevrolet, until 190 mph.
