My friend's white ZR1

Hi everybody,

Here are photos I did of a my friend's ZR1. This thing is a monster

I did several runs against him on Autobahn. The ZR1 won easy . From my stock 420HP M3 it's less impressive than I thought but you see the distance being significantly bigger above 200Kph. Around 230Kph the ZR1 makes a real difference ! The noise of the ZR1 is intimidating.

In September he will increase the power up to 750HP. I can't wait

I will do photos of my M3 and his ZR1 together soon.

some great shots there of an even better car.

I can only imagine how much it rapes a new M3. I've seen it at the track, your looking at a 15mph+ trap speed difference in the 1/4 mile.....thats huge.

all you need to know is below

Sick shots. Not a whole lot of cars in the road faster than those beasts. I imagine they are pretty rare in Switzerland as well.

ZR1 are COOL! I have been in a few ZR1's and they just flat out haul. Lots of fun there! Nice pics.

My pic for Vette paint for sure.

I saw a tricked out Vette years ago while having a beer on the shore of Lake Lucerne. Not every day do you see them across the pond.

What an absolutely beautiful country. So clean!

Send me some chocolates.

it's amazing that he's in Europe and picked it up...I figure high performance American cars are pretty rare over there.

On my Corvette forum there are members all over the world. Actually, as far as American cars go there a pretty good numbers of them in Europe as well as the Middle East and even Australia.

Nice pics, and one great perfroming car! But the look of that front end has become too soft! Looks like a cartoon.

The fender flares, wide tires, wide and low stance and engine growl is enough to let you know that its mean.

not to mention the S/C lexan window, huge carbon brakes and the Corvette Crossed Flags. This is a serious car to be respected by anything on the street.

ZR1 are very rare in Europa. You have more chance to meet a F-car than a ZR1


Yesterday we went to Paris with my friend to do a dyno test and a chip tuning of the ZR1. Here is the result:



=> Official datas are 647HP and 820NM

Verified datas by www.dmperformance.fr :
=> 591HP and 780NM stock
=> 610HP and 800NM after the chip tuning + removing the speed limiter. It was funny because the ZR1 had two limiters: one at 338km/h and one at 350km/h...

My friend is going to do some mods. His goal is to hit 700HP and 900NM.

We did 1'400 kilometers in two days and my friend let me drive this monster for approximatively 500 kilometers. This ZR1 is unbelievable. I find the car as versatile as an M3. Very comfortable in Comfort mode! I find this skill is very important for a long trip like we did.
Not to say that when you push the accelerator it's an another world than my stock M3's. Just incredible !
