The regular Z06 has 335 tires, and it breaks traction anytime at will. If anything, the ZR1 needs race compounds to put the power down fully.

Chevrolet Unveils 2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible In LA

Quote:
Barely two weeks after premiering the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the American automaker has surprised many be unveiling the new Corvette ZR1 Convertible at the LA Auto Show.

Beneath the skin, the ZR1 Convertible is powered by the same LT5 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine as the coupe, therefore delivering an identical 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque. This will allow the car to accelerate from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in under 3 seconds and complete the quarter mile in the high 10-second range.

Chevrolet hasnít produced a ZR1 Convertible since the original model premiered in 1970. Clearly eager to ensure the car has been worth the weight, Chevrolet has ensured that itís only 60 lbs (27 kg) heavier than the hardtop. Thanks to the supercarís rigid structure, the ZR1 Convertible promises handling to rival its sibling.

ďThe ZR1 convertible is a no-compromise supercar. Thanks to the strong structure, the suspension tuning between coupe and convertible models is identical, meaning the ZR1 convertible offers the same benchmark performance, including a top speed of over 200 mph,Ē said Corvette executive chief engineer Tadge Juechter.

Like the coupe, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible can be equipped with the $2,995 ZTK Performance Package, adding a large rear wing, front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and Magnetic Ride control suspension. The car produces up to 950 lbs of downforce.

Chevrolet has confirmed that the ZR1 Coupe will start at $119,995 while the ZR1 Convertible will be priced from $123,995.

Followed a black one a few days ago. Has a surprising amount more road presence than a Z06. Certainly stood out with the big wing.

I'm not sure how I feel about the vMax claims as C&D only hit 18x with theirs. Clearly removing the aero bits allows for a higher speed, but that just seems a little contrived if you have to remove parts to get the top speed. So it's either set up for the track or for a hypothetical test track vMax, not both.

I know it's cheaper than a GT3 RS or certainly a Macca 720s, but both achieve their vMax without taking parts off and while retaining their track prowess. Hopefully the C8 won't need these shenanigans.

Car and Driver did 180 in stock form in the standing mile, not a Vmax run. Itíll need more than a mile to hit top speed.

I don't think there's any "shenanigans" going on. The ZR1 with the ZTK track package (the big wing, stiffer suspension tuning, and some other things I don't remember) will have a lower top speed than the "regular" ZR1 with the lower wing.
