Thanks to the LS9 supercharged V8, the most powerful engine ever produced by GM, the Corvette ZR1 is knocking some of the exotics from their lofty perches. Tipped to cost around $US100k, the ZR1 is set to stir the establishment in much the same way as Nissan’s mighty GT-R.

Having just revealed that the 6.2-litre LS9 pumps out a massive 476kW/638hp and 819Nm, GM are keen to show their new poster boy in action. The video above is an official GM production taken on Germany’s Papenburg test track. GM have revealed on their GMNext website that they have clocked the ZR1 at 205mph (329.91km/h)! How delightfully politically incorrect.
