    Behold the new corvette zr1




    The most noticeable differences we can spot from this and the formerly top-tier Z06 are a different front bumper, a far more aggressive-looking hood, what appear to be racing bucket seats, and that wild spoiler out back. The magazine itself has predicted the ZR1 has the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 as the Z06, but with larger intercoolers and better cooling. That’s good because the C7 Z06 was kind of infamous for problems in that department.

    The ZR1 name has been used to denote the King of the Hill Corvette off and on for some years now, including the high-tech C4 ZR-1 with a Mercury Marine-built V8 engine in the 1990s and the beastly supercharged C6 ZR1 from a few years ago. This new car has well over 100 HP on that car, so expect it to be an absolute demon. And considerably lighter than an actual Demon.

    Expect to see this thing at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show in January, if not sooner.

    The hood is awesome but that bumper is absolutely atrocious

    The lower front bumper and rear spoiler look Lambo-ish.

    It looks like they hired a tuner fan boy to do the styling. I know its functional .. but the spoiler could have a way better design and that front bumper is horrid. But hey, it might just be the angle, interested in seeing the performance numbers.

    Trying too hard to follow what Dodge did with the Viper.... Functional or not, I wouldn't spend 6 figures on a car that has a Fast N Furious wing and front chin spoiler on it.

    Sorry but that thing is hideous.
    If you shine low-entropy light at a planet, you get complex dissipation patterns. Some of which use the internet.
