General Motors and Chevrolet will ensure the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 meets a strict set of quality-control guidelines with a two-week holding period. For eager dealers and customers, the first batch of ZR1s has completed the two-week-long waiting period and are officially shipping out to dealerships.
Corvette Blogger reported the news on Monday and expanded on how GM uses the two-week quality-control period. Workers are able to find any nuances or issues that may show up over two weeks. From there, it will quickly become clear if the problem is one-off, or if the particular is widespread, which can stave off numerous defects.
Every new C7 Corvette undergoes the same treatment, but it’s especially important for the nearly $120,000 Corvette ZR1.
Soon, those who first placed their orders will receive a 755-horsepower Corvette ZR1, the most powerful Corvette ever from the factory.
