It has recently released a video showing it isn't kidding and has proved that its ZR1 can indeed do more than the claimed figure. With a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 cranking out 755bhp, the front-engined sports car achieved an average of 212mph (341km/h) at the Papenberg test track in Germany.
Interestingly, the American coupe might still have more go. According to its Chief Engineer, Tadge Juechter, the team didn't expect the car to hit its 215mph (345km/h) limiter and were surprised when it did.
“We talked about raising it [the limiter], but the tires were validated to 215mph.”
