You've been fighting, scrapping, waiting, and drooling for every detail on the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Well, brace yourself for a biggie: The ZR1's base price tag will be $103,000. Add the $1,700 gas-guzzler tax and you're looking at $104,700.

Now that you've stopped swooning, I'll go ahead and let you know the other vital specs for the stunning V-8-powered coupe. The ZR1's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 will push it to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, 0.3 second faster than the Corvette Z06. It'll hit 100 mph in 7.0, turn in quarter-mile times of 11.3 seconds at 131 mph, and charge to a claimed top speed of 205 mph.

It's the fastest Corvette ever, GM says--and it'll get 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, too. That, Chevrolet says, is better than the Lambo Murcielago and Aston V8 Vantage, and on a par with the Dodge Viper and Porsche 911 GT3.

The ZR1 will come with the features found on the Z06 'Vette. A $10,000 option package throws in power leather seats; side airbags; a navigation system; Bluetooth; a power telescoping steering colum; leather interior trim in a choice of four colors; and Bose premium audio. The only standalone option is chromed wheels, at $2,000.

Stay tuned as we bring you more details on the ZR1.

  1. Tom Wallace, vehicle line executive of Performance Cars said that the ZR1 will beat the Ferrari F430. Personally I think that people will still appreciate the Ferrari more because of it's brand but the ZR1 is truly a good competitor for the F430.
