Al I like the rear rims if I was picking. So you have the ZR1 allocation and are ordering your car? I think you are the only active member on here who has confirmed this if so.
This new orange was pretty well received on the release threads all over the forums and although not my choice does look good with the black and carbon fibre accents.
When is delivery promised for you?

Congratulations

Derek
Canadian orders to be built in March ... del May or June.

What he said...

Congrats @Al Stewart on being the first CCF member that I know of with an allocation. I think there's less than 150 for Canada no?
Hey Nik ... I'm told that 90 coupes 10 rag tops. I agreed to pay 15k over MRSP. Close to 200k to bring it home.

The cover for the car with that wing... hmmmm couple of design choices there.
I would think that the cover for the tall wing may be separate? Looking forward to Barret Jackson auction. 01 vin to be sold for charity, the 2015 ZO6 vin 01
went for 1 million loonies.

As distasteful it may be to some you can't buy a ZR1 without the ironing board out back. Or get both if they're interchangeable. It's like getting a Viper ACR without the silly aero kits you'll be leaving on the 401 Westbound....

Congrats on the allocation. I like the color, convertible, black ZR1 wheels and the big wing. One mean looking machine for sure!

Thanks for your interest ... wish they still had Laguna Blue or Shark Grey.

Yes agreed Al. Likely a cutout and a slip over section for the wing. Whatever it ends up being it will be pretty special for that car.
We are excited to see your grin in that amazing Corvette this summer. :thumbs:

I'm not sure on the two piece cover.... I'm thinking it might be one piece and have a wing pocket addition sorta like the form fit little ears the custom covers have to accommodate the mirrors.... Either way, it's gonna be easy to tell the front from the rear when you're putting the cover on.... :cool:

I like the big wing but I'm thinking the novelty would wear off and then I'd be cursing it every time I had to load my golf clubs.... lol....

It's not my car, HOWEVER, if I were to invest in a ZR1, I would really, really lean heavily to the big wing as the ZR1 is the pinnacle of Corvette performance, so you should get what makes the ZR1 ,the ZR1. The worry, as Rruuff states, is if you use the back storage a lot, it may get tiresome loading the car from the side (but I'm sure I would get used to it), and it's not like the wing will help performance on the street so, it would be like buying the car more for what it is capable of doing as opposed to buying it for what you'll be using it for. I don't know, I like the large wing as it just calmly lets all other performance cars on the road know that this is the king and just seeing the wing on the car in the garage would put one heck of a smile on my face knowing what I have.

Good points Riley.... The wing certainly screams ZR1 but I think the 755 horsepower screams ZR1 as well... And after all, the low wing is no slouch either. GM says even it makes 70% more downforce than the Z06 spoiler...

I think you summed it up well Riley. On that beast the wing is a statement piece. I admit I would most likely have it on there as well. Despite the side loading thing and weird looks from the unenlightened masses. The car is a monster and the wing is functional to the point of something like 800 or 900 pounds of downforce at “ludicrous” speed. My stage 3 Z06 is rated for around 250 pounds downforce at 100 Mph. Which actually feels pretty good I heard.

If one is going to get the ZR1... it will be for what it is capable of more than what is actually routinely happening with the car in most cases. Pretty special car to be beating at the track regularly. Can hop up a cheaper car for that. The top of the food chain kind of thing. No stress. :Biggrin:

This is purely an educated guess but given it's Barrett Jackson and its a charity drive sale as well, I will throw my hat in the ring at
$ 280,000.00. Notice I said my hat... not my money....

I haven’t seen the others sell (first C6 ZR1, C7 Z06), but I thought they all went for $1,000,000?
