    Chevrolet is obsessed with the letter Z. Many of its best performance models start with the 26th letter of our alphabet. Case in point: the Corvette ZR1 and the Camaro ZL1… 1LE. Both are capable of ripping holes in the space-time continuum with their big V8s and comparably big wheels, but...

    In the best tradition of tight, winding road courses, there was a noteworthy accident at this weekend's Detroit Grand Prix. This year's accident wasn't in one of the cars that you'd expect, though. Nor was it the driver who you'd expect. Rather than being one of the Indy cars, the car that lost...

    In what can only be described as the best headline since Ferrari sets lap record at Fiorano, the Corvette has taken to home turf and set a lap record at the National Corvette Museum Motorsport Park. Setting a time of 2:05.29 on the 3.15 mile Grand Full Course, the longest format available at...

    The 2019 Corvette ZR1 has been filmed lapping the demanding Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany. It seems General Motors itself was testing the ZR1 at the Nurburgring, as the car was fitted with a Michigan manufacturer's license plate. The Nurburgring was also recently closed down for industry...

    For the first time (probably) a Corvette ZR1 has been put on an independent dynomometer and had its power tested at the wheels. Rated for 750 hp at the crank, this manual Corvette makes 670 hp at the wheels, which actually isn't bad. Drivetrain loss is a tricky thing to calculate because of...

    Performance figures are slowly being leaked and a new report claims that the 2019 Corvette ZR1 will hit 134 mph in a quarter mile that it can complete in just 10.6 seconds (that's one Toretto, for the more mathematically minded among you). The report also claims that the ZR1 one will 100 mph in...

    The most gonzo of all current Corvettes, the ZR1, packs a 755 horsepower wallop from its supercharged LT5. Chevrolet, as it has in the past with other notable versions of popular models, offered up the first retail copy to the highest bidder at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale. Rick Hendrick, who...

    If the 755 horsepower the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has to offer isn't enough for you, Hennessey already has a fix. The Hennessey HPE1200 supercharged engine upgrade for the ZR1 brings total output to an estimated 1,200 hp to go with 1,066 pound-feet of torque. Building on the LT5...

    Chevy promised us the 2019 Corvette ZR1 would shoot flames from its exhaust, and it does... The bowtie brand published a video showing the ZR1 undergoing high-speed testing in which the ZR1's 6.2-liter supercharged LT5 turns on the afterburners, pushing out a white and blue-hued flame for more...

    Chevy chopped the top off the 2019 Corvette ZR1 in Los Angeles.  The introduction of the C7 ZR1 convertible marks the first time the legendary RPO code has been available since the introduction of the track ready package in 1970.  Chevy says ZR1 coupes and convertibles are nearly identical...

    The most powerful car in General Motors history has arrived in the form of the 2019 Chevrolet CorvetteZR1. The supercar-shaming Vette will make its public debut at the L.A. Auto Show this week, so expect more news about this car in the near future. We can't wait to drive this car on a track...

    So far, Chevrolet has only shown us the new Corvette ZR1 equipped with the hardcore ZTK Performance Package.  Chevy has told us the ZR1 will come stock with a low-drag wing, but the company hasn't bothered to release any pictures. Except one.  Upgrading to the optional ZTK track pack brings...

    Because everyone wants more ZR1. Sure, the Corvette's new supercharged LT5 V8 is a huge part of the car's transformation into an allegedly fire-spitting supercar slayer, but its the ZR1's revised front and rear aerodynamics that turn it into a real track basher.  It starts at the nose, where...

    It's a dreamy composite of very threatening mechanical sounds.  Several users of the internet have expressed displeasure regarding GM's decision to "simply" modify the Corvette Z06's 6.2-liter LT4 for life as the 2019 Corvette ZR1's 6.2-liter LT5, instead of developing an entirely new engine...

    The fastest car General Motors has ever built has an appetite for expensive metal. Corvettes have long been capable of devouring cars worth double or even triple the cost-- it's part of what the brand legacy was built on--but the 2019 ZR1 is different. It has more power than anything ever built...

    [B]We know many things about the upcoming Corvette ZR1... For example, we know we don't know what engine Chevrolet's crack team of Corvette engineers have crammed under the C7's bulbous hood; it could be a more wanton version of the Z06's supercharged LT4 V8, or it could be the new LT5 DOHC V8...

    Development of the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is quickly approaching completion. The car was caught testing today looking production ready in both coupe and convertible derivatives, along with showing off its two distinct aero packages. The coupe wears a hardcore GT wing and a front...

    Another Corvette ZR1 sighting in Germany confirms exactly nothing. The big winged cars are back at the Nurburgring for the latest round of development shakedowns by Tadge's Team. Still sporting the same "Laguna Seca" pipes to keep decibels levels acceptable we're left still wondering what...

    Put your preconceived notions away-it wasn't spotted cutting up the Green Hell, romping around VIR, or even tearing through Death Valley-the latest ZR1 sighting was at McDonalds, during the lunch hour. Loitering in the drive thru gave the sharp shooter a chance to finally capture the ZR1's...
