On Sunday, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 became the 15th Corvette to be the official pace car of the Indianapolis 500 with Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo leading the pack of the IndyCar racers to the start of the race.
One of the signature features of the ZR1 is its robust exhaust note and to learn more about it, GM shared a video on social media that introduces us to Corvette’s lead noise and vibration engineer Charlie Rusher.
Charlie says it’s his job it to make Corvettes sound like Corvettes and he believes that one of the main ways people connect to sports cars like the ZR1 is through sound. Talking about the 755-horsepower ZR1, he describes it as “pretty loud, pretty aggressive, and over the top even.”
So “turn up your speakers to 11” as Charlie says and check out this short feature on the 2019 Corvette ZR1 Indy 500 Pace Car:
