Corvette ZR1 limited to top Chevrolet dealers

GM will limit the number of its Chevrolet dealers set to receive the new Corvette ZR1 to just 338 showrooms out of the 3,932 Chevy dealers across the U.S. Only dealers with proven sales records for the Corvette are being included in the new ZR1 project but with most expected to receive just one or two cars demand will be high.

Dealers are already receiving dozens of orders for the new ZR1, which starts at $105,000. Owners will be able to take pride in the knowledge that they’re driving the fastest Corvette ever made, with a 0-60mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 205mph already tested in the Chevy supercar.

GM hasn’t revealed production numbers for the new ZR1 but the final figure is expected to be small to help maintain exclusivity.

Part of the reason many dealers have missed out is because those that are included in the program will have to pay for special training and equipment to service the car – something many smaller dealers can’t afford, reports Automotive News.
