Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 spied for the first time

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 spied for the first time

Over the years, Chevrolet Corvette has always been a popular name in the performance car segment. Corvette’s latest iteration, the ZR1 has been spotted on test ahead of its international debut in August 2017.  Along with improved aerodynamics in the new design, the new Corvette is also expected to put out better performance figures.


On the design aspect, the new Chevrolet Corvette seems to utilise the widened bodywork from the Z06, which gets multiple inlets to cool the differential, brakes as well as the engine. Though most part of the vehicle has been heavily camouflaged, it appears that the vehicle will get a revised front with new front splitter and enlarged air inlets. A prominent hump on the hood indicates on a presence of a supercharger. The sides get are adorned with blackened star-like spoke design. The rear gets higher positioned rear spoiler as compared to the soft-top version. The rear bumper also sports the traditional centre positioned quadruple exhaust. 

Though there is no confirmation on the engine specs yet, we believe it could be a get the tweaked version of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine from the Z06. Currently, the engine produces 641bhp of power and 881Nm of torque. We believe that the new Corvette ZR1 might generate an additional 99bhp over the Z06 power figures. The new model will come loaded with Magnetic Ride Suspension, Performance Traction Management, and electronically controlled limited-slip differential technologies as the Z06.

Though the vehicle will be globally unveiled in August, the Corvette ZR1 is expected to go on sale in 2018. More details about the vehicle will be known in the coming days.
