That is tremendously good car and the noble cost is at high praise. Keep it up.

Weight reduction is where they focus, ’vettes are claiming that they are faster than the Zonda Pagani. Well with this weight reduction i guess they are right.

A good million bucks for the ZR1 eh, well, since this is more beautiful and powerful and fast, I’m pretty sure that it may make a good competition for its bid. If I had that much dough, I may have paid for it as I definitely would like a tour of the production of cars by Corvette.
