Auctions America Auburn Fall Spotlight: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Coupe
Truly an American supercar that brings the technology and engineering refinement of carbon-fiber, ceramics and electronics together in a distinctive design that works to deliver the most powerful and fastest automobile ever produced by General Motors.
These are very special cars, starting with the LS9 6.2 liter, supercharged V-8 that produces over 600 horsepower and delivered through a six-speed transaxle. At the time of introduction, the project manager was claiming that it would have 100-hp per liter helped by the new, four-lobed Roots type, intercooled supercharger. Low three seconds times are attainable in the 0-60 miles per hour sprint. The speedometer has a reading of 220 mph and you can monitor the supercharger with a boost gauge. The suspension has been designed and tested to log over 1g on the skid pad to make this one of the best handling cars in the world. Stopping distances are just as impressive, courtesy of huge carbon-ceramic, ventilated rotors.
The collector car world will celebrate one of its longest running automotive traditions during the upcoming Labor Day weekend when thousands flock to Auburn, Ind., for Auctions America by RM’s third annual Auburn Fall auction, Thursday, Aug. 30, to Sunday, Sept. 2.
