GM, put this suspension on the base and Z06 Vettes. Heck, put the magneto-rheological shocks on the G8, Camaro, and Alpha while you're at it. I'd gladly pay thousands for these goods on my next car.Jalopnik said:The real magic of the ZR1 isn't that it's capable of any of the above, though. It's that it will make you forget all of its intimidating performance figures and fancy technology the second you take a corner at speed. Despite all the headline numbers, this car isn't about power, it's about handling.
C&D should adore the thing. Remember, they're notorious for giving the win to the car that is easiest to drive at the limit even if it doesn't have the best numbers, and that sounds like that description fits the zr1 perfectly.Sounds good so far. I'd like to hear what the likes of the editors at Car and Driver, or dare I say the hosts of Top Gear will have to say about it.
All in all, it is a beautiful car. If I could have one, I'd take it in red with the stock ZR1 wheels done in black. Someday...
Both Motor Trend and Car & Driver have their reviews up. And, yes, they love it, too.C&D should adore the thing.

I was just thinking the same thing. I guess it's the trickle-down effect, but it would be nice if the bottom-rung were class leading, then people would actually want to aspire again to GM's top models. I'm glad the ZR-1 is awesome! It had to be to support that price. Great job!!Absolutely beautiful. If only GM could put the same effort into the volume cars.
