The Corvette ZR1 is one of the eleven cars originally included in Stunts. Its general characteristics allow it to be tiered with Acura NSX as one of the mid-range road cars, being noticeably faster than the likes of Audi Quattro and having somewhat difficult handling, but not as difficult as the really fast road cars such as the Ferrari GTO. A number of unique traits, however, set the Corvette apart. It is the only car among the original set fitted with a 6-speed transmission, which allows for finer control over speed and power delivery, particularly over the 90-150mph range. These benefits are further enhanced by a very distinctive digital speedometer. Additionally, the ZR1 is one of the powergear cars. Unlike one might imagine, though, its powergear is much closer to the GTO one than to the NSX, requiring very high speeds (above 210 mph) and usually long chains of jumps to be triggered. One interesting consequence of the Corvette feature set is that contest tracks designed for it tend to have very polarized characteristics, being either super-fast powergear speedways or tricky slow circuits that exploit the tricky handling and speed control capabilities. Corvette never reached widespread popularity among racers. Notably, two of its most famous specialists are members of the Argentinian school - Gutix and Chulk.
