[VIDEO] Motor Trend’s Corvette ZR1 200 MPH High Speed Run

Motor Trend tests the 2009 Corvette ZR1

Late last week we brought you the results of Motor Trend’s Corvette ZR1 instrumented test results. In their testing, MT claimed they hit a wind corrected 200.4 mph on the five mile high speed loop at Chrysler’s Arizona Proving Grounds. Video surfaced today showing a three camera view of test driver Didier Theys hitting that mark. Although he backs it down when the speedometer hits over 200 mph, it looks as though the ZR1 still had some legs for more.

Just to recap those performance test numbers from Motor Trends, the Corvette ZR1′s 0-60 mph was a blistering 3.3 seconds and it flew through the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds at 130.5 mph. The Corvette ZR1 also pulled 1.10 g on the skid pad and stopped 60-to-0 in just 97 feet.
