Car and Driver got their hands on a 2019 Corvette ZR1 and to properly put the car through its paces, they attended the Texas Mile this weekend. We haven’t seen any posts directly from them on any of their social media channels, but we do get to see a couple videos posted on the Texas Mile’s facebook page.

As you can see in the photos, the Arctic White 2019 Corvette ZR1 is equipped with the ZTK Performance Package which features the High Wing:

In its first run the high-wing ZR1 recorded a top speed of 180.8 mph and then it ran a second time at 183.3 mph as shown in the video above.

In the next post, the Arctic White ZR1 was shown returning to the starting line without the High-Wing attached. With the car trimmed for high speed, the times started climbing with a run of 189.1 mph and then in this video below where it ran 190.1 mph.


We’ll be looking forward to reading about this experience from Car and Driver and we will let you know its available. And make sure you check out the Texas Mile’s facebook page for a ton of photos and more videos from the event like these two other Corvettes in attendance:

  1. Ton of air resistance to overcome at that speed. I’m thinking a lot of those “top speed” numbers come from math calculations rather than real world driving, like of course 755 HP should propel a 3600 lb object with some aerodynamic enhancements to 200-215 mph, right?
