2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 now coming with an advanced driving course for free

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Although GM may be having difficulty with its finances at the present moment, it is not withholding anything with regards to customer programs for its halo sports vehicle, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

Everyone who buys a ZR1 is guaranteed to get a trip to the Bob Bondurant Driving School in Arizona to be trained in the finer points of "maximum car control," which consists of an assortment of driving exercises, such as heel-and-toe downshifts, slaloms, and other essential skills during the training course that lasts for two days.

Lately, two ZR1s have been delivered to the driving school that will be utilized for training exercises, drivers enrolled in the course will, however, be progressively introduced to the power potential of the ZR1.

The drivers will be starting out with a base Corvette, then progress to the Z06, and ultimately to the ZR1, Motor Trend reports. The president of the driving school said that the course was developed to make new drivers "appreciate their ZR1 on an entirely different level."

Bondurant says that the course is also available for non ZR1 owners, for a price of about $3,400. The ZR1 has a sticker price beginning at $103,300 plus an $850 destination fee and requires at the top of it all a $1,700 gas guzzler tax.

The driving course is quite reasonable for new owners since the new ZR1 is officially the swiftest production Corvette in history, able to reach a ceiling speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). Its acceleration rate is measured a full 0.3 seconds faster than the already powerful Z06, and it can finish the quarter mile in just 11.3 seconds at a speed of 131 mph (210 km/h).
