2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Release date

After months of endless rumors, we have finally spotted the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 making test runs. However, the sports car was under heavy camouflage. Since the C7 was delivered to dealerships in 2013, enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for the automaker to offer the range-topping ZR1 which was conspicuously missing from the lineup.

The seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette was unveiled in early 2013 and introduced for the 2014 model year. It replaced the nine-year-old C6 and essentially changed the way enthusiasts viewed the Corvette thanks to its significant upgrades. Besides the more angular and aggressive styling, the C7 also received a revamped interior that no longer made use of cheap plastics. The cabin was finally moved into premium territory, putting an end to decades of criticism. Under the hood, the ’Vette continues to use a naturally aspirated, 6.2-liter V-8 powerplant, but the old LS3 was replaced with the brand-new LT1.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Specs

Little is known about the interior of the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Our spy photographers have not also managed to get close enough to take snap shots of its cabin. However, we believe the ZR1 will be based on the standard C7 Corvette and the Z06.

However, Chevrolet will add few unique features to set it apart from the C7 and the Z06. Carbon-fiber will be extensively used on the cabin to ensure the model’s weight is kept as minimum as possible.  Among the most probable additions will be a unique instrument cluster and a new infotainment system featuring a bespoke menu.

As you can see from the photos, the model we captured making test runs was under heavy camouflage. However, we can still see some special features that indicate this is a special Corvette.

The most visible features are the huge air vents on each corner of the front fascia. These intakes means, the model has an intercooler which further hints at a powerful V-8 under the hood. Compared to the Z06, the model we captured features a larger hood bulge which hints at an extra gear.

The rear features two struts protruding out which hint at a rear wing. Other surfaces were under heavy camouflage. We will reveal more information about the ZR1’s exterior styling when we manage to capture the model with less camouflage.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Engine

Chevrolet has not made official announcements of the drive-train that will power the ZR1. According to rumors, the sports car will be motivated by a twin-turbocharged V-8 mill. The engine is believed to be an LT5 which will also power the upcoming Corvette Zora.

Speculation as to what is underhood of the ZR1 has been rampant; candidates have included a juiced version of the Z06’s blown 6.2-liter LT4 V-8 and a new twin-turbo V-8. Given that the Z06, as well as the ZL1 and the C6 ZR1, all push 650 hp, the C7 ZR1 would have to join the seven-handle club with authority to put enough daylight between the lesser and prior models to justify its six-figure pricetag. Say 750 hp?… The driveline may not be able to handle that much, but we can believe, at least until the car is unveiled, likely in January at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show.

However, other rumors argue that the automaker will use an intercooled and supercharged LT4 small-block mill with a displacement of 6.5 liters.  While various factions differ about the possible engine, they all agree that whatever the mill chosen, it will produce over 700 horses. Transmission will likely be done by a 7-speed Tremec transaxle as standard and GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission system as an option.
