Just announced as the pace car for the 96th Indy 500, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be the most powerful to fulfill the role in history. 

While there really isn’t anything new about the ZR1 itself, there’s little doubt that Chevrolet’s supercar featuring a 6.2-liter LS9 V8 will dazzle the crowd. To date, Chevrolet has provided the race with a pace car 23 times, 11 of which were Corvettes.

You’ll be able to see the 638 hp ZR1 which can run from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds on May 27 when the race starts at noon, Eastern Standard Time, but until then there’s a video fo it below.
