2009 Corvette ZR1 Sets Nürburgring On Fire

The 2009 Corvette ZR1 is getting oh so close to launch, and it's just been caught doing hot laps on the Nürburgring.

Motor Trend Gaming Google on the 2009 Corvette ZR1?

While covering the Barrett-Jackson auction this weekend, specifically the $1 million purchase of the first "retailable" 2009 Corvette ZR1, we did a quick Google search for the 2009 Corvette ZR1 in order to pull up our old story on the new super-Vette from the General. When the results came up, we noticed something… » 1/21/08 9:45am 1/21/08 9:45am

Although you'll be able to see it for yourself if you're in town for the Detroit Auto Show next month (or watch the coverage live here on Jalopnik!), you still won't be able to see the new 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1 the way we're showing it to you right now.

The 2009 Corvette ZR1 is Coming! So Sayeth Hennessey, Reveals 678 HP…

Somehow we think maybe the 2009 Corvette ZR1 pre-Detroit Auto Show embargo will be lifting sometime very soon. It's the only explanation we can come up with for why Nissan felt compelled to have an embargo on the 2009 GTR's Z06-beating Edmunds Inside Line 0-60 test lift late last night.

Video of the Corvette ZR1 Hot Lap Around Laguna Seca...From Inside The…



A few weeks back we broke the news the new up-powered model of the 'vette we've been talking about at length for the past year now — the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 — would be taking a hot lap or two around the track at Laguna Seca. We knew we'd get some pictures of the hot lap — even posting a contest on it —… » 12/06/07 2:01pm 12/06/07 2:01pm

This is the 2009 Corvette ZR1 LS9 Engine and Yes, We're Probably in…

This is it. Thanks to an anonymous tipster we have what appear to be the very first and clearest shots yet procured of the 2009 LS9 6.2-liter V8 engine powering the 2009 Corvette ZR1 — something we weren't expecting to see until the Detroit Auto Show in January. But, since information yearns to be free — and whoa,… » 11/26/07 9:30pm 11/26/07 9:30pm
