A lot of people might not realize it but if you’re a performance person who loves the art of going fast, now is a great time to be alive, especially if your forte is American cars. You see, I think that pretty much everybody knows that in the 90s, America really had a struggle of a time when it came to putting together a decent automobile and this wasn’t only in the sector that would appeal to the most general consumer but also down the alley of performance. I’m not sure about you but I feel like the cars that were produced by the good old US of A in the early 90s could sometimes leave a lot to be desired.
Not to fear, though! As the late 90s and 2000s would come around, America would really start stepping up their game, cranking out cars that were of a little bit higher quality and also put into place some engine combinations that were more reliable and were able to make some serious power on stock components.
As time would go on, we would see more and more progress being made as the end of the first decade of the 2000s would bring some pretty amazing machines and they have only been getting better ever since, only to just now really come into their own where many would argue that some of the flagships that you will find from companies like Chevrolet really punch above their weight class, coming in at real world prices and really slapping European and Japanese automakers in the face, shaking up theIndustry a little bit and lighting a fire under everybody’s rear end in the name of doing better.
This is where we sit now, as we check out the latest rendition of the Chevrolet Corvette with the C7 ZR1. It’s time to stop the speculation and see what this thing can do as it heads out for a top speed run.
*SPOILERS* It eclipses the 200 mph mark with EASE!
