2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Officially Hits 212 MPH

Corvette ZR1 reaches Top Speed of 212 Miles Per Hour

Towards the end of last year, Chevrolet revealed its Corvette ZR1. Chevy let it be known that the top speed of this vehicle would be above 210 mph. The ZR1 has a 6.2-liter V8 engine that is capable of churning out 755 hp.

Although all the hype was based on the manufacturer’s word of honor, Chevy has fulfilled its promise as the latest news testifies so well. A video clip of a Corvette ZR1 with a maximum speed of 210 mph was put on display before the public recently.

This vehicle was firstly driven in the wind’s direction. Then it was driven opposite to the wind’s direction. The overall average speed maxed out at 212 mph. This is a phenomenal speed indeed.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was tested at the Papenberg Track in Germany. There was no backside wing on this car this time around. The drag on the car was therefore present. The fact that the ZR1 has equaled the Ferrari 488 Pista, is not a small accomplishment.

To top it all, the driver and passenger in the vehicle seem to have maintained their composure throughout the duration of the track race. This is not so easy at speeds above 200 mph.

However, a word of warning for drivers in urban areas who want to reach speeds above 200 mph. Such a daring feat is only achievable in regions with the least obstacles and not suitable for urban areas. Watch below the video of 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 officially hitting 212 MPH.
