First Batch Of 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1s Have Been Shipped To Dealers


They should arrive any day now.

This is a big month for the new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Not only did production get underway on March 5th, but also shipments to dealerships. According to Corvette Blogger, the first batch of Corvette ZR1s to roll off the assembly line at the Bowling Green, Kentucky production facility passed quality-control standards on March 15th and are now on their way to dealerships. The 755 hp ultimate (front-engined) Corvette has been several years in the making and will likely become a highly sought after collector’s car in the years ahead.

Although production itself is relatively short, each C7 ZR1 is put through a two-week quality control hold until it’s loaded onto a truck and shipped out. It is during that time when quality control personnel examine each completed ZR1, ensuring everything is up to standard, from the engine to the paint job. If some sort of blemish is discovered, the entire completed batch of ZR1s will be isolated for fear of similar issues. By all indications, these first ZR1s met all quality control standards. We don’t know exactly what parts of the US the cars are being sent to, but don’t be too surprised if sometime this week you pass a Chevrolet dealership and spot one parked on the lot.

Chances are, however, that particular ZR1 has already been spoken for. Fortunately, a Chevy sales person will be more than happy to place an order for you, assuming you have nearly $120,000 to spend. Consider it money well spent because where else will you receive over 750 hp, exotic looks, and supercar performance capabilities for less than $200k? It is America's newest and best supercar.
