It has emerged that General Motors might be intending to offer as much as 700 horsepower in the new C7 Corvette ZR1.
It is also being said that the new Corvette Z06 will continue to be powered by the naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine but the motor will be considerably more powerful. It is being said that the re-tuned engine might deliver as much as 600 horses and make the new car almost 100PS more powerful than the current Z06.
GM has already said that it plans to bring back the LT5 moniker for the new supercharged V8 and if the Z06 indeed turns out to have 600 horses, the ZR1 is sure to have around 700 horsepower. The Z06 is still an year away and safely expect the ZR1 to come even half a year later.
