Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

  Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 This month, Chevrolet showed off the long-awaited 2019 Corvette ZR1. Making 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque from a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8, the new ultimate Corvette can hit a top speed of 210 mph, according to Chevy. At the moment, there’s no official price, but considering that the C6 ZR1 came with a base price north of $100,000, expect the new one to be even pricier. Speaking of the C6, how does the new ZR1's design compare to the old one? Research chevrolet corvette See All Model Years See Pricing Up front, you get a much more aggressive look this time around.

What would you expect to find from a storage container? Old, undesirable furniture, Atari videogames, the worldly remains of Jimmy Hoffa? Jokes aside, if there's going to be an abandoned car in a storage container, it's more likely to be a Cavalier Z24 than a Corvette Z06, let alone a 720-mile one.

The ad claims the Corvette is the lowest mileage Z06 in the country. While that is possible, it's almost certain that 20 years from now some mothballed, zero-mile Z06s will start coming out of the woodwork – we've seen weirder things. But if you want a low-mile example and you're willing to get your hands dirty dealing with the paper trail, here's a perfectly good chance. The Vette is on its original 2009 tires, so we'd refresh those before any track day action; the seller has already replaced the factory fluids and washed the storage dust off the car. It does polish up nicely.
