The Texas Mile isn’t for people who like calm weekend drives. It’s an event where cars can run flat out for four times the length of a quarter mile, where a 2006 Ford GT went nearly 294 mph once, and where the 200-mph club is an honor. This 2019 Corvette ZR1 apparently hit 190.1 mph there over the weekend.
It once took three whole companies to bring the engine in today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Corvette to life. Let’s see if this red rocket’s price tag will mean there’s still some of that life left in it.
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,…
We’ve seen what could possibly be a new Corvette ZR1 or some other big-winged performance variant running around for months, and it would only make sense for General Motors to reveal it in full at the Detroit Auto Show next week. But nope.
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.
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.
Did you ever jones to buy a brand-spanking new C4 Corvette ZR1 but for whatever reason could never pull the trigger? Well, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe never-been-kissed Corvette ZR1 will give you another chance, while its price may feel like you're the one getting spanked.
Sleepers come in many forms, from well disguised muscle cars to monsters in economy car clothing. After witnessing the insanity of the 728 horsepower Camry we started thinking about the variety of different options when it comes to creating a sleeper. This weekend we want to know about your ideal vision of a seriously…
As part of their 100 year celebration Chevrolet set up a weird bracket style voting system in an attempt to pick the best car the company ever produced. After 124,368 votes were cast the 1969 Camaro came out victorious. Second place went to the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
Watching the speedometer is probably the last thing you are thinking about when you are piloting a 1200 horsepower Hennessey GT well into triple digit MPH. For car nerds like myself, it's hard to watch a speedometer climb in this manner without getting a little bit giddy even when you aren't behind the wheel of one…
Today's "Hoon of the Day" is a very special episode called: "When Hooning Goes Wrong." Watch as the driver of a new Corvette ZR1 attempts to display his vehicle's supercar-level performance only to show off his should-drive-a-Sebring-level driving skills and collides with a Chrysler 300 SRT8. When will someone…
Houston's Fastlane tuning shop is working on this 1971 Corvette dubbed "Golden Rod." It's been fitted with a new, supercharged LS9 from a ZR1, and the suspension, brakes and other components will be upgraded similarly. We also hear it's dating a 22-year-old yoga instructor.
As a test of supercar superiority, the Japanese show Best Motoring put five supercars — the Lexus LFA, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 GT2RS, Chevy Corvette ZR1 and Ferrari F430 RSD — in a three-lap race around Fuji Speedway. The winner is...
Assuming your idea of a new Corvette isn't just one with Louis Chevrolet's face all over it, GM's performance brand is adding a ton of tiny tweaks for 2012 including a new ZR1 High Performance Package and Performance Traction Management for the Z06.
Lee Adams of central Florida owns 14 high-end sports cars, including a Ferrari, Mosler, Ariel Atom and a Corvette ZR1. Or he used to own a ZR1, until he had to call 911 after getting locked inside.
The security guard who rose to Internet fame for hooning a Corvette ZR1 on camera and uploading the video to YouTube is in a heap of trouble. The car's owner tells us they'll be calling the Dallas police this morning.
It's one thing to beat on a Malibu, but a security guard at a dealership auction committed the cardinal sin of hooning an as-of-yet unsold $110,000 Corvette ZR1. And then recorded it! This guy is toast. UPDATE
Flat out, power-sliding in a Corvette ZR-1 at a hundred miles an hour was probably the wrong place to mockingly ask NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya if he was "having fun turning right." Don't worry, he punished me for it.
