After the delayed presentation of the 2018 Corvette ZR1 at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, the exact date of presentation and release date are still unknown. The star of this year’s fair in Detroit was the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. Now awaits the publication, whether this supercar, find front of the audience at New York Auto Shows, or in August at the Continental Tire Road Race Showcase. This second event would be an ideal place for trial of strength, the new Corvette ZR1 model and models of similar performance.
2018 Corvette ZR1 is the last example of this model in which the engine is mounted frontally. 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 will be the representative of the new generation. In addition to the announced redesign, the vehicle will have a centrally placed engine. Besides the changes that are related to outer design and the city drive, this vehicle will have a new name. 2019 Corvette C8 Zora is expected next year. For now, the changes are minimal.
2018 Corvette ZR1 Specs
2018 Corvette ZR1 will run the engine with almost 700 hp. The current Corvette C7 will actually get a new twin-turbo V8 power unit. This will replace the hitherto engine 6.2-liter supercharged intercooled engine. This 1.7-liter with Eaton TVS R1740 supercharger delivers 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It seems that is not enough. Now, how much is actually going to inflate the figures, when the power drive units are concerned, is the fact the new generation.
Yes, the current model will have a 700 hp, and 2019 Corvette C8 will perhaps revive the original concept ZR1. This would mean that the new generation can make his debut with 32 valve V8 engine. Although this is less likely, than anything else. Given that Stingrey model debut with hybrid drive, something tells us that hybrid models assume markets.
Big changes this model has yet to bring to the market. Among other things, the cost of which will easily exceed $ 100,000.
