I'm not sure how accurate this is, since I just happen to do a random search for 1/4 mile time right after my intro thread and this article is only 13 mins old at the time of my posting. http://www.motortrend.com/cars/chevr...t-look-review/ IF this is an accurate article, I'm guessing they are getting the info from the LA reveal. Pricing seems ok, but for me I'd be wanting a little lower of a time in the 1/4 than high 10s.

LAT says the same. Ugh. Discounts are inevitable, though.

WOW! $119,995 base price!!! That is $40,500 over the base price of a Z06 ($79,495) That is a chunk of change for a bunch of carbon fiber pieces, a larger supercharger and extra cooling. They say high 10's in the 1/4 and under 3 seconds 0-60 with the A8 for the ZR1. The Z06 with A8 is 10.95 seconds in the 1/4 mile and 2.95 seconds 0-60. Sounds pretty close to me! This makes the Z06 the ultra performance bargain! IMHO

Yea, that is kind of what my thinking was too. I'm sure the times are probably conservative and you will see stock one's getting into the mid 10s and even maybe lower 10s but if the average 1/4 time is in the 10.60-10.80 range that's a little underwhelming for the premium. Unless of course you like the look and are wanting to do road courses which I'm sure it will do better with all that down force. But for most people who will buy it for the streets and maybe take it to the drag strip every once in a while you're better off with a Z06 and putting some bolt on's and you'll be right around the same or better.

You can option an $80k Z06 coupe up to around $110-115k so for a fully optioned ZR1 you may be looking in excess of $150k. Wow, I thought GM learned their lesson from the C6 ZR1, but apparently not.

Keep in mind too...you can get a great discount on a '17 or '18 Z and the ZR1 will most likely be MSRP or more! This would make the Z06 cheaper by 50 grand +.

All the C7 model Corvettes you can add 30 grand of options if one so desires. GM should have learned from the last ZR1 pricing and also from Chrysler with the Dodge Viper ACR's listing for $130k+ and ended up discounting them 10's of thousands off to unload them.

It's not that much faster than a Z06.. I guess GM want a to charge 40k for better cooling, CF bits and 100 horses. SMH

Base price probably includes many features that would be options on the Z06. As we know for example that CC brakes are standard. I bet there is no stripper interior either.

It will probably be a short add on option list much like the Dodge Demon.

The 3LZ trim (or whatever they designate it) will add approximately $10,000 to the base price. A fully optioned ZR1 will MSRP for approximately $140,000.

Right where I thought it would be. A lot of people here were dreaming it would be cheaper and overlap with the Z06. No sir!

I'll pick up a garage queen ZR1 later when they depreciate and people dump them for the MORE EXPENSIVE mid engine car.

After getting 20k plus off my 17' Z06/Z07, and giving the dealer a deposit on a ZR1 at sticker price, so the base it at 120k add the 3LZ and as said it's a 135-150k car depending on what is standard and not standard equipment. Have to see the order info hopefully soon

That seems like a pretty good bargain.
A comparably equipped Z06, which would include at least 2LZ with PDR, Z07+full carbon package and competition seats, to the base ZR1 is a $101,000 MSRP car, so $119,995 is an addition $19k.

I think your math is off. 1LZ to 1ZR it's $92K to $120K if you include the Z07 package and required aero. 3LZ to 3ZR its $102K to $130K. Either way its a $28K up charge and that doesn't include the the ZTK package.

I like the car but I am disappointed in the pricing. I guess we'll see what the market forces end up being.

Once I account for tax and license, and my optioned new 2017 Z06 price, verse the base ZR1 including tax and license, it would be a $43,000 difference. As much as I like the ZR1 I just can't see spending that much more. I'm sure the base price is for a manual so if you want an A8, it will add even more to the price+ guzzler tax.

For some time, there seemed to be concern that intro of the C7 ZR1 would have significant negative impact on C7 Z06 demand (similar to what was observed with intro of the C6 ZR1 on C6 Z06 demand).

There are those that are in the "gotta have it" category --- but I'm guessing that there is enough of a price jump up for the C7 ZR1 to keep demand for the C7 Z06 safe from cannibalization.

Yeah, I was one of them thinking that the base price would be at $109,495...off by $10,500!
