Thanks for sharing.
This information covered, including with complete text, in our thread here:
Just read that the ZR1 has a combined 15 MPG rating so that means a $2100 gas guzzler tax.

This car must turn up real fast after getting up to 60. The Z06 being .10 slower up to that point. That means this new monster gets to 100 from 60 in 3.15 seconds. Yikes! Who says I don't need that extra horsepower. Can you spell passing other cars? Love it.

This HP war is getting crazy. I watched a Top Gear episode over the weekend. They were driving a new Ferrari 812 Superfast with a V12 NA engine that put out 800 HP. They admitted that it had too much power even on the track. I do have to say it sounds awesome especially turning almost 9000 rpms.
To each their own for HP. To me, once one gets over 450 HP in a 3000 pound car, it starts to run together. I realize that while I am typing this there are many on the forum who might rightly disagree and that's ok. We all get to make our own choices and that is awesome. But, again for me, (and perhaps others who won't be tracking their car) the HP differences are not super important. I was really happy with the HP of my 2014 Stingray (455) and I traded to the 2015 Z06 as much for the more aggressive look of the car (and the fact that it was a coupe and not a convertible like my 2014). The difference between 0-60 of 3.5 and 0-60 of 3.1 seconds is hard to appreciate, since I don't race or track. Just my opinion and preferences and I'm not trying to convince anyone else of anything. I love both cars and all things Corvette.

Today we learned that the ZR1 is not an economy car. Not that any owners, nor potential owners care less. Here’s more info.[PIC] 2019 Corvette ZR1 has a 15 MPG Combined City/Highway Fuel Economy Rating - Corvette: Sales, News & LifestyleOriginally Posted by CorvetteBlogger
