Let the rumors flow, this time with a LT5 double overhead camshaft and a big blower.
But still not midengine.

The New ZR1 debuted in DUBAI over the weekend, you'll probably have to live there to afford it.

This time the LT5 does not come with 4 valves per cylinder, but it does have 2 direct fuel injectors per cylinder.

They call it the king of the hill, I call it the Corvette from Hell. It suppose to top 210 MPH

Still don't like the tail lights. And I wouldn't buy the big wing for a street vehicle - it screams ricer. Looks like they solved the Z06 overheating issues with a hugely open hood and much more intercooling capacity.

They are going to build 2 versions, one with a low wing. It's rumored to be around 135K.
Since Chrysler killed the Viper for 2018 it has no real US competition so up goes the prices.

OK guess what happened to a Brand New 2019 ZR1 Corvette over the weekend.

Pace car crashes during opening warmup lap at Detroit Grand Prix. Driven by a GM Exec.

I bet GM told him You broke it You bought it. He is pretty high up the Food Chain at GM, but at 121,000 bucks it's bound to hurt.

They are turning it into justification for a mid-engine and awd next-generation Corvette.

Worst-kept "secret" around; I am sure on purpose. Sounds like they wiil keep the front engine Vette around as the cheap entry level model for at least a few years. I want to see a mid engine model in the flesh before I pass judgment, not that I will ever be in the market to buy one.
