[VIDEO] Insane 1,300 Horsepower Corvette ZR1

How much horsepower does your Corvette have? 300? 400? 500 or more? That’s cute. Check out this insane white C6 ZR1 which is being billed at the world’s most powerful ZR1. At 1,385hp with nitrous we’re not going to argue with that claim. The modded LS9 still throws down 1,075hp even without the spray.

The good news about this Corvette garage fire is that no one was injured and firefighters managed to save the rest of the house from going up in flames, too.

The bad news is that the C6 ‘Vette is apparently going to need some serious restoration after being “heavily involved” in the garage fire, according to Senior Captain Charles Martin of the Houston (Texas) Fire Department.

Well, at least the headlights still work!

Classic Corvette Owners Combine for 100 Years of Corvette Ownership

Some things definitely get better with age.

Just ask John McIlvoy and Joe Beatty, who have owned the same two Corvettes for a total of 100 years and 500,000 miles between them!

Ironically, they both grew up in Ohio, where they bought their Corvettes in the 1960s, and both are now members of the Northwest Houston Vette-Rods club.

Last night we learned about a strange incident at the Texas State Fair where a participant at the Chevy Ride and Drive event crashed into two Corvette Stingrays with the back of 2014 Impala. We now have some more details from someone that was at the event and saw the crash first hand and told us that isn’t entirely accurate.

We’re debuting a new tag tonight called “SAVE THE STINGRAYS”. We think it’s only proper given the fact that learned tonight about another two or three C7 Corvettes that were taken out in a case of Bow-tie on Bow-tie violence in Texas.

According to Jalopnik, things got interesting at the Chevy Ride and Drive event on Wednesday afternoon at the Texas State Fair after an unidentified driver in the 2014 Impala hit two or three 2014 Corvette Stingrays, damaging at least two of the C7s as well as the Impala.

Mecum's Dallas Event – Corvette Buyers and Sellers Nirvana

Dana Mecum’s favorite car has to be the Chevrolet Corvette, especially if solely based on the number of outstanding high dollar cars that were hammered down during the last four days of his third Dallas auction.

It was clearly evident that Corvettes carried the four-day auction and were the car of choice for collectors where a new record price was paid for a Corvette ($3.2M, a 1967 L88, fully documented former NHRA record holder and the only ’67 L88 to retain its original body panels).

Of the 172 Corvettes that crossed the block 106 were sold, a 61% sell through rate, for a combined hammer price of $9.106M. Though some buyers were able to grab some excellent bargains during the first two days of the sale, the last two days saw spirited bidding and prices well above average. Almost twenty Corvettes were hammered down above $100K. It seemed as though most restored second generation cars were selling between $100K to $150K and if the car had any rare options it was selling close to or above $200K.
