New Look at the 2018 Corvette ZR1

More spy footage has emerged of the highly anticipated 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, this time testing on the track at Laguna Seca. A new engine coded as the LT5, a 6.2-liter DOHC V-8 with direct injection, variable valve timing, and using an aluminum block, is expected to appear in the ZR1. Rumors have put that engine’s output as high as 750 horsepower.   Automotive journalists speculate that the ZR1 will be the final variant of the Corvette’s seventh generation, soon to be followed by a possible mid-engine version. It has been heavily rumored that the Corvette’s eighth generation will include a mid-engine supercar peer, as well as a front-engine version more like the current C7 Corvette Stingray.  There has been no word on when the ZR1 will make its official debut, but stay tuned to this blog and you’ll find out as soon as we do!
