With the base Corvette Stingray already unveiled to the world months ago, everyone is now eagerly waiting to see what Chevy does with the higher-performance models like the Z06 and ZR1.
If you can’t wait for the official GM version to be revealed, BoldRide.com has teamed with Hansen Art to take a guess at what the ZR1 might look like.
BoldRide says there’s no question that the new Stingray is a potent revival of the classic nameplate. “What’s not to love?” they ask. “Well, if you have a higher threshold for power, speed, and performance than the average Joe, there will always be a little wiggle room. That’s where the ZR1 comes into play.”
While we do like the look that the anticipated ZR1 has been given in this company’s design “guesstimate,” we’re hoping that they went way too conservative with their horsepower prediction of 650-hp from a twin-turbocharged / supercharged 6.2 liter LS7 V8.
That’s only 12 horsepower higher than the current C6 ZR1, and while that’s still mighty impressive, we have our doubts that a dozen more horses will be enough to satisfy the Corvette faithful.
Horsepower or not, the Hansen Art design definitely adds even more punch to the tantalizing lines of the base Stingray, what with “a set of signature high-spoke chrome wheels, sharper, more distinct lines, and a few aerodynamic aids,” BoldRide says.
It’s just got us even more excited to see what Chevrolet does indeed come up with for its high-powered version of the Stingray, when it finally arrives.
