Attached Image As a track oriented car, the ZL1 gets a suite of other performance technologies, including an improved Magnetic Ride suspension, Performance Traction Management, electronic limited slip differential, Custom Launch Control and Driver Mode Selector. It rides on 20-inch forged alloys that are wrapped with Goodyear's Eagle F1 Supercar tyres. A set of Brembo brakes with six piston front and four piston rear calipers makes sure the car can stop as well as it can go.
