Top Gear Magazine Reviews the Corvette ZR1


Although their review is expectedly a far cry from what Jeremy Clarkson will have to say, the review is quite favorable.  You would think it would have to be since it holds the record for the fastest production car to go round the Nurburgring.  They found it to be compliant and supple on regular roads, but when you floor it you have limitless power.  To put it briefly, they said to “make no mistake. What we have here is one of the truly great supercars.”

I have a feeling that in Clarkson’s review, he will talk about how cheap the interor is and how flimsy the body panels are, but then he’ll throw it around the track and fall in love with it.  Time will tell, the new season of Top Gear should be starting in a few months.  Stay tuned and we’ll keep you in the loop!

  1. um…forgive me if im wrong, but im not. The viper ACR holds the fastest production car record around the nurburgring. the corvette ZR-1 was just knocked off a few months ago… it’s 2nd. and Jeremy Clarkson already drove it and loved it..well power wise anyway. what they don’t get is that it’s a 1/3 the price of cars it competes with, so yea, they sacrificed a few things…but when your in first…who cares.

  2. Hi Lucas,

    You are correct. This post was written back in September, so the info is a little out of date.

    We did cover the Viper’s lap time shortly before we made this post, but at the time of writing this, the lap time was still unofficial.
