Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)

The Corvette ZR1 (C6) appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as an Exotic Series racer vehicle, and as an SCPD Speed Enforcement unit.

The racer vehicle is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 570,000 racer bounty. The SCPD unit is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 521,250 cop bounty.

The car is overall lacking compared to most cars within their class such as the Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR. Top speed and handling are mediocre; to contrast, the above-average acceleration and strength make the ZR1 useful in police chases.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)

The Corvette ZR1 (C6) was unveiled as a vehicle to be featured in Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) on July 11, 2012. It was featured in the article - Rumble in the Concrete Jungle: Corvette ZR1 on the official Need for Speed website.

The ZR1 appears as an Exotic class vehicle, which can be found in various Jack Spots in single player. It will be unlocked in multiplayer upon reaching SpeedLevel 43.

It is slightly faster than the SRT Viper GTS in terms of acceleration. The ZR1 possesses a twitchy steering that is prone to oversteer. This makes the car excellent for drifts, but difficult to control in two consecutive corners. It is also a durable vehicle for pursuits.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) (Mobile)

The Corvette ZR1 (C6) appears in the mobile release of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) in the Exotic category.

Available for $300,000, the ZR1 has high acceleration and top speed, but lacks in handling compared to its competitors. There is an NFS Edition that has slightly improved handling over the standard model.
