The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1—Chevy’s latest contender in the battle for performance supremacy—is finally here after months of teases and leaks. From the most recent leak, we already had a pretty good idea what this car would be: basically a Z06 with a huge wing and 750 horsepower thanks to a larger throttle body,…
I’m not sure if this “leak” was meant to happen or not, but the cover for the December 2017 issue of Car and Driver is making the rounds on the internet, and with it comes our first official look at the new Corvette ZR1. And the power rating. It’s 750 horsepower now. So, uh, a lot. Update: More details on the car…
I prefer my Corvettes with engines from Mercury Marine and tuning from Lotus, thank you very much.
The wind hushed through the trees. It was quiet—peaceful, even. But not for long.
Spy photos and videos suggest that some new Chevrolet Corvette, perhaps the 2018 C7 Corvette ZR1, has a massive rear wing that you could practically eat dinner on. We’ve shared a video of what appears to be this same pack of test mules before, but this one gives a real close-up of the three.
It looks mean, it looks nasty and we’ve been waiting for it: this camouflaged Corvette prototype with a massive stinkin’ wing just could be the new C7 Corvette ZR1.
There’s a maybe-supercharged V8 explosion coming from the southern shores of wonder, a ZR1-familiar LS9 stuck nose-up into the front of a Holden Commodore, which is Australian for “Chevrolet SS.” It’s the big boom time now, maybe, baby.
Autoblog captured some spy photos of a Corvette prototype (that may be the Corvette ZR1, the blog points out) tugging along a laughable massive wing on the trunk. This is basically what it looks like.
The haters wanna hate, hate, hate on the fourth-generation Chevrolet Corvette, but I think it's actually a pretty interesting machine, and one that successfully moved a legendary nameplate into the modern era. And of all C4 Corvettes, none stand above the mighty Corvette ZR-1.
[How righteous was the 1990 Corvette ZR-1? Even Chevy couldn't help do a burnout in it for the car's press photo shoot.]
Hennessey made a new song. It's called "Ballad of a 750 Horsepower Supercharged V8." Do you like it?
Which is faster: the legendary Corvette ZR1 of the '90s, or the twin turbo Callaway Corvette? The straight-laced folks at Motorweek went to find out.
The magazine currently known as Motor Trend has essentially become Car Comparison Test To Upset Or Please Fanboys Monthly. I'm sure they create other kinds of content, but they've taken a common magazine schtick and made it the core of what they do. You didn't learn enough from the ATS v. 3 Series test? That's ok,…
President Barack Obama took time out from watching the Republican field eviscerate each other in Florida to visit the Washington D.C. Auto Show. He sat in roughly six cars, but seemed to focus on the 2013 Shelby GT500, which he apparently called "sick." Right on, Mr. President.
At the mention of modifications to new pickup trucks a flurry of lift kits, overly bright headlights and unnecessarily loud exhausts immediately come to mind. The owner of this Chevrolet Silverado decided to skip all of these and came up with a significantly less conventional and more interesting way to modify their…
A few months back, Late Model Racecraft of Houston, Texas showed us what it was like to go 231 mph in a twin-turbo, 1,500-hp Corvette. Now they're schooling us again, doing the quarter mile in 9.68 seconds at 147 mph. Great butter pecan, that's quick.
