People love to drive cars which have sporty looks and run fast. Companies such as Ferrari, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini, according to the needs and preferences of auto enthusiasts, make sports and fast running cars to attract more and more consumer to their respective brand and to counter other vehicle brands.

“I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either because there’s never been one like this before,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.”
