The ZR1 is easy to drive normally around town, and much easier to hammer on the back roads - without feeling like I might kill myself - than I expected.
There's an incredible soundtrack coming both from under the hood and the rear pipes - I love the throttle-induced burble and the to-the-floor roar.
I spent a lot of time doing 2nd and 3rd gear blasts to 90-110 mph, then hard braking. Fun, fun, fun. And the brakes are incredible. In low speed corning through a dip, I lost rear traction briefly while braking and shifting - the stability control corrected instantly and with very little drama.
The ZR1 still is not my cup of tea, but I understand and enjoy it.
