Chevy Says Corvette ZR1 Not Happening


The Z06 will be the most potent C7 Stingray in the stable.

Chevrolet unveiled the Corvette Z06 in Detroit this week and while the 6.2-liter supercharged V8-powered supercar is still under development, the automaker has revealed this is the only range-topping model currently on the table. That’s according to Autoblog, who spoke with C7 chief engineer Tadge Juechter. The new C7 Z06 is expected to exceed the performance of the C6 ZR1 across the board.

With 625 horsepower, 635 lb-ft of torque and a body constructed of aluminum and composites, there isn’t more Chevrolet can do to the Stingray to wring out any additional performance without making a significant investment in design and engineering. The C7 Z06 will carry a six-figure price tag when it eventually hits showrooms.
