Will the new C7 Corvette ZR1 have 700 HP?

The base model Corvette C7 is now available for the public, but what about the evolution of this supercar. What will the Z06 and the ZR1 offer in terms of power and track abilities?

Rumors say that the Z06 will be powered by the same 7 liter naturally-aspirated V8 producing somewhere in the range of 600 horsepower. I bet this will be a thrill to drive and the soundtrack is going to be just awesome.

But will the ZR1 reach the 700 horsepower mark? Will it be one of the most powerful front engine cars there are? GM has made it clear that the LT5 will be in the engine powering the supercar and as we can see the major improvement that the Z06 received, we can only think that the ZR1 will have the same treatment.

Either way, the improvement in materials and suspension will make the new Z06 and the ZR1 a superb car, even if the power will remain unchanged.
