Rumor: Corvette Blue Devil to have 700+ HP!

by Keith Cornett on July 5, 2006

We love rumors. Especially when they are about something that we wish would be true. In the case, the rumor is about the horsepower of the Blue Devil Corvette – itself just a rumor until a month or so ago when GM said it was gonna happen. Now the rumors are about details and this one comes from a tipster over at Jalopnik.com so we are just doing our civic duty to report it (and then drool over the prospects of what might be). The rumor comes from a guy that knows a guy who is a Master Mechanic for Chevrolet and recently visited a seminar for servicing the supercharged LS9 that will power the Blue Devil Corvette. According to him, the new engine will output 700+ horsepower.

My VERY RELIABLE source tells me the new Corvette is going to come with 700+ N/A HP!!!! I didn’t believe him until he said he went to the class that shows them how to repair the engine. My source has been a Master Chevy mechanic his entire career. He also mentioned there will be 2 new supercharged CTS-V and the convertible (forget the name) Caddy’s. The design of the supercharger actually puts the intercooler inside the intake manifold, cooled by a front end radiator.
With recent news that the new Viper will come in around 600-650 hp, this is good news indeed. Er, I mean, we can only hope that this rumor will stick! Source: Jalopnik.com
