Building the ZR1

According to Autoblog, General Motors released all the official numbers for the 2009 Corvette ZR1. The price for this awesome vehicle is $103,300 plus tax and gas guzzler tax ($1,700). The one option package adds another $10,000 but gives you upgraded seats, side air bags, Bose audio, a nav system, Bluetooth, power tilt/telescoping steering wheel and leather-wrapped interior. The ZR1 boasts a 0-60mph of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 205mph. I am proud to say the Corvette has been my dream car since I was old enough to drive, and maybe longer. I remember having Matchbox Corvettes competing against all other Matchbox cars I owned. The Vette always won. I did a 10 page paper on the history of the Corvette in high school, going through each of the generations of Vette. This is a neat video I found on Autoblog's website. Enjoy the Building of a ZR1.
