In 2010, for anyone that still needed more horsepower than even the Z06 could offer (and for anyone that could afford the six-figure price-tag that came with it), Chevrolet again offered the C6 ZR1 Corvette as the flagship of the Corvette fleet. This behemoth Corvette once more featured the supercharged 6.2 liter, 376 cubic inch LS9 engine, which produced 638 horsepower and a staggering 604 ft/lbs of torque.
While the ZR1 was still a new platform in the Corvette lineup, the 2010 model did offer a couple of small, but significant, improvements for the model year. The most notable change to the 2010 ZR1 was the addition of the Performance Traction Management (PTM) option which enabled drivers to select from five settings, each of which acted as a variant of traction control for various track settings. The PTM automatically adjusted the traction-control response and suspension firmness to suit the varying high-performance driving dynamics placed on the car. In addition to PTM, the 2010 ZR1 also included an option (RPO Q6J) that enabled anyone purchasing the car to have the wheels finished in Competition Grey.
