Chevrolet Corvette (C7) Z06 will get 600 hp, ZR1 will deliver 700 hp

Tuning de responsa: Corvette

Both based on the new seventh-generation Corvette, the Z06 has an output of 600hp while the ZR1 model has an output of 700hp, according to a Motor Trend report. It was always understood that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette will have versions that are faster and more powerful. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette features a new 6.2-liter V-8 engine dubbed as the LT1, which delivers 450 hp. However, this will be far inferior to the performance versions that Motor Trend envisions. It’s expected that the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will keep its 7.0-liter V-8 engine that can have an output, ranging from 550 to 600 hp.

The range-topping Corvette ZR1 can deliver from 675 to 700 hp. It can also use a supercharged version of the new LT1 V-8 that may be named LT5. The current 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 generates 505hp from its 7.0-liter V-8 engine. The Corvette ZR1 equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 can generate 638hp. Chevrolet seeks to maintain a distance between the different Corvette models, so it will purposely put gaps between the outputs of its car.

So for example, if the Corvette ZR1 can deliver 675hp on Chevrolet’s dynos, the Z06 will supposedly be tuned for around 550hp to have a more substantial divide between the models. If Chevrolet gets an output of 700hp or higher from the ZR1, a Corvette Z06 will probably offer 600hp. Motor Trend is hinting that the Corvette Z06 will have its debut after about a year. The ZR1 is expected to follow. But first, Chevrolet is planning to present a convertible version of the 2014 Corvette at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

In February, the California Department of Motor Vehicles, responding to information requested by The Times, said it would examine issuance of duplicate 1965 titles to 43 Cobras, apparently the same cars that were built in 1991 and '92. Shelby claimed in signed applications to the DMV--under penalty of perjury--that he has owned the cars since 1965 and that the original titles had been lost.
Wednesday, a DMV spokesman said the matter is now being investigated by the Los Angeles field office of DMV's
Investigations and Occupational
Licensing Division.
In a series of recent interviews over three weeks, Shelby, 70, offered several explanations regarding the chassis before admitting they had been built in 1991 and 1992 by McCluskey.
In all interviews, Shelby...
