Building a ZR1 from Start to Finish!

June 17, 2008

This morning General Motors released all the official information for the 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1 including 0-60 mph time (3.4 sec), quarter-mile (11.3 sec at 131 mph) and top speed (205 mph).

This Corvette is the fastest, most powerful and most expensive vehicle GM has ever built. So how does it get built? Why, at the Corvette’s Bowling Green Assembly Plant in Kentucky. Put together by the same people who lovingly assemble the Corvette Coupes, Convertibles and Z06s, the ZR1 is nevertheless is much more difficult a vehicle to build than the regular Corvette coupe on which it’s based.

Watch this video from the GMNext website to see a ZR1 go from a frame to a supercar in under 5 minutes of time-lapsed video interspersed with interviews of the plant workers who have the privilege of assembling the King of the Hill!
