The World's Fastest Corvette

In a change from all the high dollar exotic cars I usually feature here, this is a high dollar exotic Chevrolet.
The Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1 may be the fastest Corvette ever built.
The ZR1 is powered by a modified LS3 (the LS9) that produces 638 hp and 604 ft.lbs.of torque.
This is largely due to the sixth-generation Eaton TVS R2300 roots 4-lobe supercharger with an intercooler that's mated to the LS9.

What does all this mean in a straight line?
Try 0 to 60 in 3.43 seconds with an estimated top speed of 210 mph.
The Vette can blast through the quarter mile in 10.988 seconds, at 135 mph.
The cost on this little number?
About $115,000.
Not bad compared to some of the other cars we've had on here.
