Jay Leno, perhaps one of the world’s most famous auto enthusiasts, had quite a few good things to say about the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1. Chevrolet’s supercar killer stopped into Jay Leno’s Garage for an episode to go over the car, learn about how the team accomplished its magnificent feats and learn more about the complementary track driving school.
It wasn’t Leno’s first time behind the wheel of a Corvette ZR1, though. Previously, the car guy/comedian hopped into the driver seat at the Milford Proving Ground for high-speed laps. Onboard was Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. Leno was able to top out at over 200 mph on the track.
On the street, Leno appears to fall in love all over again. And he specifically states his appreciation for the seven-speed manual transmission in the Yellow example on loan.
Before Leno combs over the car and hits the road, we also learn more about the two-day driving school that comes complimentary with any Corvette ZR1 purchase. Spring Mountain and Ron Fellows Performance Driving School will ensure all ZR1 drivers know how to handle their 755 horsepower Corvette with finesse. We don’t need to see any examples spinning out as a driver leaves a local cars and coffee.
