2010 Corvette ZR1 Gets New Traction Control System, Launch Control


The Corvette ZR1 is already one of the best road-going machines ever made, but that hasn't stopped the Chevy engineers from adding a few updates for the 2010 model.

The main upgrade is a new traction control system that uses what Chevy calls Performance Traction Management (PTM). Essentially this works like a typical traction control system, limiting power delivery, except that it can do so right up to the maximum amount of grip available and without the driver having to modulate the throttle. Instead the PTM system handles that. When exiting a corner, the driver just needs to mash his right foot on the throttle and the car takes care of the rest.

Other new aesthetic offerings for 2010 include a new Torch Red paint color, a Cashmere interior color and optional Competition Gray wheels.

This new technology does, however, come at a cost, as the 2010 Zr1 will retail for $2,910 more than the '09 model, for a total of $109,530. Still, it's a bargain for the price.
