Ouch! Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to cost $200,000 in the UK

When GM released the very first details on the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 it made it a point to emphasize that you get outstanding performance at an outstanding price. Head over to Chevrolet.com and you’ll be surprised that you can get a 638-hp Corvette that does 0 to 60 in 3.5 secs with a starting price tag of $103,300.

Well the British aren’t that lucky. GM has just dropped the Corvette ZR1 pricing in UK and the 206-mph supercar will start at an eye-watering £109,000, that’s right under $200,000 ($199,987 to be exact) in current exchange rates.

That’s big-time supercar pricing territory. Wondering how many people have put their names down to get one in their driveway? For 2008, Corvette dealers in the UK are only getting 2 ZR1 units for 2008 and 20 for 2009.
