    1389801600

    Don't expect a halo ZR1 model to follow on the heels of the all-new Corvette Z06, says Chevrolet. The Z06 was in the spotlight yesterday when it was officially announced at the Detroit Auto Show. Constructed primarily of aluminum and composites and fitted with a 6.2-litre supercharged LT4 V8 producing "at least" 625 horsepower and 635 pound-feet of ...

    Spy Shots: See what the Chevy C7 ZR1 may be benchmarked against
    1367939700

    One of the greatest things every Corvette has had going for it, and also one of the most re-used arguments against it, is its price-to-performance equation - long before the Nissan GT-R became the de facto Porsche 911 comparator the Corvette spent decades as Exhibit A. Depending on which side of the argument you stressed, supporters crowed about how much ...

    Report: Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?
    1361316600

    Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-litre V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 ...

    Video: Helicopter crashes on Top Gear Korea set while chasing Corvette ZR1
    1360594800

    Detroit: Corvette ZR1-powered Fisker Karma debuts in Detroit
    1358177040

    There's nothing wrong with the Fisker Karma that a honkin' Chevy V8 engine won't fix. At least according to Bob Lutz, it seems. Called the VL Automotive Destino, this machine is the brainchild of industrialist Gilbert Villereal and the aforementioned Lutz, and is intended to compete with such well-regarded performance sedans as the Porsche Panamera and ...

    1355790600

    As you may have heard, Motor Trend recently threw the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the 2013 SRT Viper GTS at each other.

    1330822800

    Road & Track lined up the Corvette ZR1 next to the Corvette C6.R ALMS racing car to see how they'd compete in a straight line. Notice we didn't say "drag" or "drag race," since this isn't at the track and we can't tell the distance of the contest. The C6.R is based on the ZR1, but comes in with about 500 horsepower to push its 1,245 kg weight and ...

    You now live in a world with a ZR1-powered pickup truck
    1310484600

    Swapping engine A into automobile B has been part an enthusiast rite of passage for decades. Fast-forward to 2011, and someone has finally jumped to engine Z. Rather, they've taken the engine from a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, and slung it betwixt the front fenders of a Silverado pickup truck. Ford Lightning owners, Dodge Ram SRT-10 owners and Toyota Tundra ...
