Here’s another quick video of the 2018 Corvette ZR1 from its recent visit to the Nurburgring. The big wing supercar with its silver star-patterned wheels makes just four passes by the camera and the final pass shows the ZR1 behind a safety car.
Perhaps its the directional exhaust pipes, but the footage captured by the Aussie site PerformanceDrive.com.au also does a great job of capturing the sounds from the ZR1 in various throttle positions.
The first clip is probably the best sounding as the car is under heavy throttle and so turn up your speakers to hear it coming and going.
Does that sound like a DOHC V8 to you? The LT5 is heavily rumored for the C7 prototype and the new hood appears to offer a bit more space for such a powerplant. But as Don Sherman recently pointed out, alleged document leaks and mocked-up cars are being done on purpose to obfuscate and distract.
The big picture view is that regardless of what is under the hood, a DOHC or an enhanced LT4, this car is going to offer serious performance with horsepower rumored to be around 750. As the Callaway SC757 can make 757 horsepower with their unique three-intercooler design, we’re sure that Chevrolet’s engineers will end up in the same ball park.
