Hey Sassy Peeps,
While attending this year’s Heels and Wheels event I finally and I do mean FINALLY had the PLEASURE of driving a Corvette! But wait, it was not just any Corvette, it was a 2019 ZR1 and word on the street is that it is the fastest, most advanced, most powerful and fierce Corvette EVER.
After being behind the wheel of the iconic and powerful supercar I can definitely believe it!
My First Impression of the ZR1
Now I am gonna have to be honest! There were tons of extremely fab vehicles available for testing during this event! However, the ZRI was definitely my absolute #1 choice. I fell in love with the beautiful Sebring orange color and its aggressive body style as soon as I laid eyes on it! I swear I heard it tell me to hop in as I casually strolled over to it, while my insides were turning flips from the anticipation of being able to drive something so bad a##.
After several minutes of drooling over the exterior, it was time to take it out for a spin. To my surprise, the cabin was quite cozy. The seats hug you when you sit in them without feeling too confined. They have a way of making you feel comfortable, super safe and ready to ride!
First Impression: It is the ultimate level of badassery!
