Amazing Chevrolet Sports Cars and How They Impress
There are a few automobiles that can be considered iconic in the history of auto manufacturing. As providence would have it, two of Chevrolet’s high-performance models are included in the list.
The Vette Has Been Around Since the 1950s
Now into the seventh generation, the Corvette is now produced in four variations: the Stingray, Grand Sport, Z06, and the ultimate unit of high performance, the ZR1, which has been described as a luxurious supercar that is the fastest and most powerful Corvette that Chevy has ever built.
Refined Engine Power
The ZR1 is powered by a hand-assembled 6.2 L LT5 small block V-8 engine. The remarkable accomplishment enables delivery of 755 horsepower with 715 lb-ft of torque and shoots the car from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds.
This vehicle is definitely not for the faint-hearted, with two interior configurations that are both considered as driver-centric and welcome you into a truly driver-focused oasis. The 1ZR features Jet Black leather seats as standard, with available microfiber inserts and the unique ZR1 badge. The 3ZR includes all Corvette interior color options, vented and heated Napa leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, carbon-fiber rims, and Bose Premium audio system.
Z06 Corvette Also to be Reckoned With
The Z06 Corvette is nothing to play with and was developed in tandem with a race car. It delivers a mighty 650 horsepower with 650 lb-ft of torque. With the supercharged aluminum 6.2 L V-8 engine, the Z06 can also rocket from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds. The Z06 offers much more flexibility and is available in three trim packages.
Chevy Camaro Withstands the Test of Time
Since production of the Camaro began in September in 1966, it is now into the sixth generation and has achieved a status that some describe as legendary. Chevrolet offers the Camaro in three models that range from the LS/LT model, which is powered by a standard 2.0L 275 horsepower turbocharged engine, or you can step up to the 1SS model with the 6.2L, 455hp, V-8 engine.
The cockpit of the Camaro is designed for performance driving, which you can feel even just sitting behind the wheel. For a high-performance sports car, the Camaro is relatively comfortable, but this car achieves higher marks for some of the technology that is now included. The standard infotainment console is controlled from a 7.0-inch touchscreen with an option to include an 8.0-inch screen that operates Chevrolet’s latest Infotainment 3 system that may include navigation. The infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and also supports a cloud connection apps and software updates. A high definition backup camera is now included for enhanced visibility, and the higher end models offer a new rearview mirror camera that can be adjusted for brightness zoom capability.
Chevy offers several Choices with the Camaro
In addition to the choice of nine colors from which to choose, there is the added option of deciding whether a Coupe or convertible would be a better choice. The Convertible offers the same sight line as the Coupe and converts with an automatic soft-top at the push of a single button.
Now that you know all about them, you’ve come to the hard part. The Camaro or the Corvette, which will you choose? You can stop by Hubert Vester Chevrolet to see which one feels best for you.
