We know the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 is the most powerful Corvette to ever come from the factory. But now we know just how fast it is in a flying mile around a closed track in Papenburg, Germany.
Chevrolet provided video evidence of the Corvette ZR1’s top speed run and the sports car was able to clock a 212 mph average top speed. We say average because it takes two runs for a final average speed. One run puts the wind at the car’s rear, while the other has the car facing the wind. Obviously, one will be slower.
The first run provides a 214.88 mph top speed with the wind at the Corvette ZR1’s rear. The second run, with a headwind, produces a 210.2 mph speed. Thus, we arrive at 212 mph as the car’s average speed figure.
The Corvette ZR1 looks incredibly poised through it all, too. It’s almost easy to forget we’re talking about speeds that are over triple of some highway speed limits. Check out the Corvette ZR1 and its 6.2-liter supercharged LT5 V8 engine strutting its stuff below.
