25. Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
The biggest news for Corvette in 2009 was the return of the famous ZR1 package. The development of this ultra Corvette took several years under the code name, “Blue Devil.” Chevrolet gave their engineers the task to deliver the best, fastest, and most powerful street-legal Corvette up to date. In 2009, a brand-new Corvette ZR1 saw the light of the day, immediately stunning the automotive world.
Under the glass hood was a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 engine pumping out 638 HP (650 was the real number). It was enough to launch this hand-built sports car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, topping an insane 205 mph. Not only that, the ZR1 was the fastest, most powerful, and expensive new Corvette in history with a pricetag over $100,000.
