Default 2019 Corvette ZR1 Supercar 755HP

I just received an email from GM regarding the new Corvette ZR1 Supercar. It's rated at 755HP and 715FTLB of torque. To much money for me to buy one but if I had the money it would be at the top of my dream list of cars!!

I didn't get an email, but I saw on online and the question I kept having was why? Where is anyone in America going to drive a car that utilizes 755 HP?

I saw today where the Dodge Demon is heading to a showroom near you! 840 hp, $85,000 or so. Not bad for a rocket, really...

I asked why, stay on topic. I live in South FL, I see those cars daily, all going the same speed as me. There are a few in the parking lot where I have my business, I think huh?

There are people who like to take a car like that to the track....
There are tons of tracks like that around the country....

This is pretty much a track ready car - I live right by Road America, one of the best tracks in the country....

Fortunately I run the track with my Motorcycle - 10 times the fun at 100 times less the cost...

Ok, I agree if it's a track car. What do you say triple net, track car only?
