While we're on the subject of embargoes, you're probably keen to find out that the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is about to fly onto Web pages and newsstands everywhere--on August 20, at 12:01 a.m., to be precise.
How do we know that? TheCarConnection.com has our spot reserved for the first drive of the uber-'Vette, next week at GM's proving grounds in Milford, Mich. We fully expect that the enthusiast mags have already track-tested the beast on their own...and we're waiting for cracks to appear in the creaky embargo mechanism.
In anticipation (heady, if you will), we're ready to bring you anything ZR1 that we can next week, from all around its carbon-fiber flanks to inside its cockpit and finally, from behind the wheel of the 200-mph Corvette. We're on the scene next Wednesday to bring you what we can--and online late on August 19 to make sure you have all the ZR1 info you want and need. Bookmark our 2009 Chevrolet Corvette
page for our Bottom Line on the ZR1 (and soon, the full metareview that compiles all the Web-wide opinions you need to read), and stay tuned here to TheCarConnection.com's blog for every bit of info we can produce.
