The new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is out, with a six figure price tag and a 755 horsepower supercharged V8. That engine has quite the tone to it, and it’s a little difficult to describe. At least it is for me. Maybe you’ll have an easier time.


Please take a listen to the car here, from friend of Jalopnik Alex Kierstein:

Given that the car is in the 700 hp range, I figured it would be easy to take seven words to put some sort of descriptor to the tone.

Perhaps it could be:

The large hadron collider as a blender.


A small landslide onto a vocal clown.

You could probably do better.
