2018 Corvette ZR1

Just when we thought the Z06 was a killer car, Chevy comes out with a bigger and badder beast of a machine! This car is beast.

750hp/680 lb-ft LT5 (6.2L, pushrod V8, Eaton supercharger)
Sub 3 second 0-60
Sub 11 second 1/4 mile
210+ mph top speed
2.5 seconds faster around VIR than Z06

That’s impressive for an old ‘truck’ motor if you will

For years they made fun of the Mustang for having a ‘truck’ axle when some of us just didn’t care. So yeah Chevy. You’ve done great on the old pushrod. Really allows more displacement to be shoehorned in a low profile sports car hood and engine bay l especially like the vette

Big, big money. But, you get supercar performance out of it.
I'm not a fan of the big wing either, but it is effective around the track. I think it may be optional on this car.

HA HAAAAAAAAAA
Yes Gary, they are amazing machines. A dude on the other Mustang forum bought a 2010 ZR1, I think it was. He sold his 2016 Roushcharged GT that was all hooked up and has some serious power for it. His ZR1 is gorgeous and a machine.
I can only imagine the new one! I think it starts at 120K or so. LMFAO

I guess you'll be getting it next month. It will probably take me longer to win the lottery but I'll keep on trying

So much want. Car is going to be beast.
But, this car will be waaaayyyyy out of my budget. lol (I think it starts around 120-130K. "Starts at". lol)

So,...........I am going to try for a Z06/Z07. I highly doubt I will be able to afford the exact one that I want, which I would have to order, but I am going to give it a try anyways. There are top 3 Corvette dealers with killer deals on these cars, so I'll give it a go.

If you get a Vette you have to be bald or I think it will make you bald when the tires hit the street
