Update: C6 Corvette ZR1 is no Longer in Production
Apparently fans of the 638-horsepower C6 ZR1 still have a little time to pick up one of the cars despite all other C6 production having been discontinued.
In addition to offering the high-performance model for the 2014 model year, Chevy is also producing a limited number of “Final 638” editions for the 2015 model year, according to an Auto Spies report.
As of yet, we haven’t been able to confirm the info with Chevy, but if Auto Spies is accurate, you’ll want to act quick. The news source claims GM is only making 50 units of the 2014 model, which is bound to make a huge collector’s piece — the first 2014 ZR1 (pictured above) sold for over $185,000 less than a week ago.
The story makes no mention about the production quantity for the Final 638, which is said to begin its run May 26. Perhaps 638 will be produced? It appears the car will shed about 300 pounds with an expected 0-60 mph time of 2.65 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.7 seconds at 140.2 mph. I’d take those numbers with a grain of salt, especially when they are predicting trap speeds to the tenth of mile per hour.
Update: Not only should you take those numbers with a grain of salt, take the entire story as fantasy. It’s about as true as Alice in Wonderland. Here’s what General Motors told GM Authority:
