GM's endowed webshow Garage 419 with a considerable amount of track footage of the soon-to-be outed Corvette ZR1 shot at VIRginia International Raceway. One none-too-surprising observation: at full bore, the kompressor'd LS9 sounds just spacey enough to play the lead role in a movie version of OutRun 2019 (that's Quantum Redshift to you, youngsters). Still, while we're all for the ZR-1's lightness calculus and considerable horsepower, that engine cover — as seen through the hood window — looks like the inside of a Hamilton Beach panini maker. We'd have been satisfied with a shaker hood and a feathered roach clip hanging from the rear-view. [Garage 419]
