I watched this yesterday. It's interesting to hear the perception of a Brit who owns many supercars and hypercars.

Tim (Shmee150) owns an Aston Martin GT8, McLaren 675 LT Spider, a brand new Ford GT and a McLaren Senna....just to name a few.

Nice review but it would have been nice to see him jump on it a bit harder. Maybe the cops over there frown on that. Overall, I'd say that in this guy's opinion, the ZR1 fared pretty well.

I don't think he was aware that the steering weight and feel is adjustable. It seems like he had it in auto mode.

Obviously it was nice to see him review the car and have mostly positive things to say. However, loafing along the streets of Bahrain does no justice to the capability of the car (despite the fact that's how most of us use our ZR1's)

Wish he could of gotten into it more but I believe he wanted to stay within the speed limits. I would too in a foreign country. If it went full symphony, I can only imagine the look on his face.

I believe it's a requirement over in the middle east. Those same blinkers were on the one at the Dubai reveal as well.

Nice review. Curious he said the key is different than the Zed-06 .... LOL. Looks like the same key.

This is the first low wing car Iíve seen. I believe I could live with it. What package does it come with? Not a fan of the high wings looks and would be a PAI getting luggage out of the trunk.
