  • [NEWS] Here's The New Corvette ZR1



    How's this for a headline: 745 horsepower and 715lb-ft of torque. Yikes. This is all thanks to the ZR1's new LT5 6.2L supercharged V8 unit, the supercharger itself is 50% bigger in displacement compared to the one in the Z06. With a power figure like that, the ZR1 can easily reach over 210mph. Ferraris and Lamborghinis beware.

    It's not just a power-fest, the ZR1 has a lot of new aero, with a new front and rear bumper design as well as a massive side air-intake and that bulge on the hood is where the supercharger assembly sits, which helps to cool down the supercharger as well as making the car more aerodynamic. The ZR1 also comes with a standard 'Low Wing' aero package which produces 70% more downforce compared to the Z06's setup.



    You want more aero? There's a 'ZTK Performance Package' which comes with a bigger front-splitter, a different setup for the suspension, and most importantly: a bigger wing. A ZR1 equipped with the ZTK package will generate 431kg of downforce. That's a lot of downforce.





    We're loving it, especially this Sebring Orange Design Package, where the car is painted in 'Sebring Orange Tintcoat', with orange stripes on the rocker cover and splitter, not to mention lovely bronze aluminium trim on the inside. We could do without the orange brake calipers though, a bit too tacky for us.

    The ZR1 will go on sale on spring next year, and Chevrolet Indonesia themselves are probably not going to offer this since it's only available in left-hand drive, but if that doesn't stop you then why not try ringing some Chevy dealers or maybe your favorite import dealer.
