That’s what I was thinking.

What are the odds of the mid engine being there too?

Being beaten out by a Corvette isn't so bad.. Pretty sure even a Z06 is quicker than the ZL1 1LE, but perhaps for a limited time.

The Z06 Z07 is quicker at Laguna but IIRC some people choose to ignore that and only go on the ring time and since there is no official ring time the ZL1 1LE is faster lol.

But yeah being beaten out by the ultimate corvette isn't a bad thing. Because that means more stuff to eventually hopefully trickle down!

Chevy teased a Corvette reveal for 11/12/17. It has to be the ZR1.

Taken from another thread here:

These are supposedly the specs:


- Starting price expected to be around $120k
- 7 speed manual and 8 speed automatic
- 1/2" wider than Z06 front wheels
- Mag Ride standard
- Carbon Ceramic Brakes
- 750hp/680 lb-ft LT5 (6.2L, pushrod V8, Eaton supercharger)
- Supercharger produces 52% more air per RPM than the Z06 blower, also 2.9" taller.
- Because of the hood height, car can not be sold in Europe
- Tadge claims the ZR1 can shoot flames out from its exhaust
- NEW fuel delivery system- BOTH PORT INJECTION AND DIRECT INJECTION
- sub 3 second 0-60, sub 11 second 1/4 mile, 210+ mph top speed
- 4 additional heat exchangers (comparing to Z06) in the nose
- Curb weight 3664 lbs, 140 lbs over Z06
- Several aero packages available, RPO "ZTK" as shown in magazine. Wing has 10 degrees of adjustability, contributing to 500 lbs of downforce at speed.
- Wing is attached behind the hatch and spreads the load to the bumper beam.
- Removable top
- 2.5 seconds faster around VIR than Z06

No 10 speed? Very interesting.

Other than that, about what I guessed it would be.

I just want to know where all this weight is coming from. Pushing 3700 lbs for a Corvette is insane.

Oh, and the LT5 needs to be put in the ZL1 ASAP.
