The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette adds the Corvette ZR1, the most powerful and fastest production car ever from General Motors. Powered by a 638-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine mated with a 6-speed manual transmission with dual-clutch technology, the Corvette ZR1 is capable of a top track speed of 205 mph. To handle the power and speed, the ZR1 is fitted with Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, ZR1-specific Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires and 20-spoke 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear) wheels in Sterling Silver or chrome. The ZR1 features wider carbon-fiber dual-port front fenders, raised carbon-fiber hood with a polycarbonate panel to allow a view of the intercooler and a full-width rear spoiler. The carbon-fiber roof panel, front splitter and rocker moldings are clear-coated with visible carbon-fiber weave. Magnetic Selective Ride Control with track-level suspension is standard and the gauge cluster includes a boost gauge. Also for 2009, the Corvette Z06 receives a new spider wheel design in Sparkle Silver, Competition Gray or chrome, door sill plates with Z06 logo and both red and titanium interiors have color-matched door panels and lower instrument panel.

This is the car for America's James Bond. by Steve from Tucson on 09/25/2008. Trim: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible LT3, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: We got the new cyber gray metallic paint. It makes the car look rich and more subtle. The ride is world class. If you really want a convertible, get this model. The "Targa" roof on the coupe is too much work and not the same. The dual mode exhaust adds to the fun when you want to make heads turn. Our car also has the select ride option, not for the ride but for the better brakes. Unless you plan to race this is the best way to get the brakes for street use. The Z sport suspension option also gets you the better brakes but then you have to live with the firmer suspension all of the time.
Cons: You can always use more trunk space.
Overall review: This is clearly the most fun ride in my life. Before you buy anything more exotic you owe it to yourself to try the Corvette.
