Behold, the Cor-maro. I wish the era of headlights stretched back over the fender would just end.
I still prefer the looks of the previous generation vette. Maybe its just me but this current vette looks too Japanesey. Reminds me of a kids Transformer toy.
They also thought they had leaked the much anticipated but never delivered Dart SRT remember.......
We've been working in the Bowling Green Plant for the last 2 1/2 years. I still haven't seen any of the new mid-engine cars.
2019 ZR1 = 1,000lbs of downforce
2017 ACR Extreme = 1,500lbs of downforce
Did they post any lap times? Apparently it was 2 seconds quicker then last gen which would still put it behind teh ACR
Its gotta beat 7:01.3... C7 Z06 Z07 did it in 7:13.9, C6 ZR1 did it in 7:19.63
I don't see them getting close to the ring tome, they'll lose the time in corners but smaller tracks with more straights will help them vs teh ACR
Thats right......................it's still a Chevy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
$123k US for ZR1
The coupe starts at $119,995 and we suspect it’s worth every penny.
When Chevrolet was roaming the world with the camouflaged ZR1 prior to its Dubai launch, we spotted convertible versions as well. We knew it was coming, but we weren’t expecting Chevy to pull out a roofless version – painted in the same day-glo orange as the hardtop in Dubai no less – for the Los Angeles Auto Show. Never the less, out rolled the most powerful production convertible to ever wear a Bowtie badge, and it does look superb.
The details at this point are slim – very slim – save for the price: $123,995 for the convertible and $119,995 for the coupe. That’s a significant jump over the Z06, but compared to other topless two-seat machines with 755 horsepower and a top speed well over 210 mph, it’s still a veritable bargain. Oh, and did we mention this generation will also be the only Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 convertible? At least, the only front-engine ZR1 convertible. We suspect there will be more than a few interested parties willing to part with significantly more coin to have one of these cars.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible Rocks LA, Costs $123k (at https://www.motor1.com/news/222866/chevrolet-corvette-zr1-convertible-la/ )
Wow, big bucks. I don't think I'll ever like the style of this generation Corvette. 'Vettes, like the Viper, should have curves not creases.
I don't know, my favorite Corvette had some creases
Yeah, I can't argue that. Even though the horsepower levels ended up being god awful, the C3's are still my favorite generation.
For me, the Vette peaked in 1982. No Vette since has been even remotely interesting.
If I was gonna get one, it would be a nice as possible 79-82 with a blown engine. Drop in a healthy crate motor and a Trenec, go through the suspension and do the rest as time allows...
