Top 10 Sports Cars You Didn’t Know About

5. CHEVROLET CORVETTE: 212 MPH

Chevrolet Corvette can reach 0-60 mph at the time of just 2.85 seconds, we already knew that the 755-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is as quick as a devil. But let’s not forget it’s also the fastest Vette ever, and Chevrolet just released video of the test runs proving its 212 mph top speed.

Combined with a ludicrous amount of aero trickery that provides 950 pounds of downforce, that 6.2-liter, massively supercharged LT5 V-8 has no problem pushing the ZR1 right up to its limit. That’s not a figure of speech: While the car might be capable of more, Chevrolet added a 215 mph speed limiter because that’s as fast as the tires are rated to go.

So unofficially, that’s 215 mph. In a freaking Corvette. For $120,000 (provided you skip the flippers). What a wacky, wonderful world.
