V8 engine, alloy block and cylinder head, four valves per cylinder (quad cam), 5,735 cc and a power of 370hp, an engine originally designed for boats, which although made of alloy is heavier than a cast iron engine.

Then with the LT5 V8 engine from Lotus it achieves a power of 400hp, few sports cars today manage to have this power.

It has an impressive aluminum chassis that many would wonder how does it manage to flinch at its fierce power?

The Chevrolet Corvette was the first Chevrolet sports car manufactured in 1953 with its C1 model.

A true super car, in its 1993 model it had traction control, tire air pressure monitor, selective steering control. This control allows the driver three types of suspension (Touring, Sport or Performance) as the speed increased, with a computer he could make ten adjustments per second in the suspension where the shock absorbed got harder and harder.

A variable fuel injection with eight secondary injectors, which above 3500 revolutions produced a spectacular result.

The ZR-1 is the most powerful Corvette ever, with impressive power, interior and exterior design, the technology and comfort of a car of today, a milestone in sports cars, although Chevrolet has not stayed there and has released new versions of the Corvette 2015 Z06.
