2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Leaks, Will Have 750 HP

We all knew this was coming, now it’s semi-official. The December issue of Car And Driver has leaked with a photo of the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on the cover. Along with the cover shot is an important tid-bit of information: this ZR1 will feature 750 horsepower.

Since all we know is what is on the cover shot, details are still sparse. The photo does confirm that the first-ever C7 ZR1 is sporting some new aerodynamic treatment, including some cues similar to that of the Camaro ZL1 1LE. Additionally, the massive bulge in the middle of the hood is likely hiding a massive supercharger to help force out 750 hp.

Eager for more details on this beast? No worries, as Chevy has issued a teaser of the ZR1 stating it will be revealed on November 12th, so stay tuned!

    If the 750 number is true I look forward to seeing some track numbers too.

    I get there is a market for these cars, and a steady cadence of new Corvettes serves as amazing marketing and promotion for the brand. But, these cars are starting to feel like numbers exercises devoid of any real meaning. Very, very few drivers have the experience to really exploit something with this much capability. One of the hardest things to gauge is how much (or ideally, how little) braking is required when setting up for a corner. With 750 hp and powerful brakes, that task is very challenging with a car of this kind of performance. The vast majority of us simply can't exploit the capability this car has.


    While I agree with you, that's part of the magic of the current crop of... I dunno what to call 'em... extreme cars?? Anyhow, the stability control and driving aids in these cars allow them to not be the widow-makers that they'd have been in the past. Don't get me wrong, as we've all seen, nothing is idiot-proof (they keep building better idiots, dammit)... but for all but the best drivers on the planet, those systems can do a LOT to prevent small mistakes from becoming catastrophic mistakes.

    In any event, I am glad to see this thing... it'll finally allow Chevy to be on equal footing with the Viper ACR at the 'ring...

    Things like this do make me wish Ford had a vehicle in between the Mustang and GT ala:



    One of the biggest disappointments for me of vehicles that never came to life.

    If that's what it will look like, all I can say is, "Look at that maw!" I can't say that those intakes on the front corners look all that great. They have a purpose, but it doesn't look very appealing to me.
