The most expensive Corvette ever right now belongs to the Corvette ZR1. It is also the quickest and most powerful Corvette model ever made. It boasts 638 tire-shredding horsepower, the same Brembo carbon ceramic brakes used by the Bugatti Veyron and a sophisticated suspension system employed by a number of Ferrari models.
This most expensive Corvette car ever made in the world is also a high performance version of the Chevrolet Corvette C6. Both the C3 from 1969-1971 and C4 Corvettes from 1990-1995 had this most expensive Corvette ever. This most expensive Corvette car was unveiled at the “12 Hours of Sebring Race” in 2005.
At that time, the most expensive Corvette car was supposedly the result of GM CEO Rick Wagoner. He wondered about what Chevrolet designer could do for $100,000. The answer to the question is of course, the Corvette ZR1, the most expensive Corvette ever. Wagoner used the Z06 chassis as a starting point, but further tuned the frond and rear independent suspension to work with the most expensive Corvette car’s ultra-wide tires for increased grip. According to GM, the car achieves 1g cornering grip.
This most expensive Corvette car was equipped with a new LS9 engine, a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 which produces 620 Horsepower (100 HP per liter) and 6500 RPMs. This Chevrolet Corvette is also reportedly capable of top speed over 200 mph. Some experts guess it will be able to do 0-60 in around 3.0 seconds. That’s 0.6 seconds faster than the Z06.
The car also features a number of carbon-fiber body parts and adjustable suspension. It was also formally announced in December 2007. This most expensive Corvette car is tagged about $100,000 and features chrome wheels and premium interior options are available.
