Chevrolet announced that the Blue Devil will officially be called Corvette SS (Super Sport).

The 2009 SS will be powered by a 7.0 litre V8 engine with an output of 650 hp. This will help the car to make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.5 seconds and have a top speed of 215 mph. The SS wil feature carbon ceramic brakes.

Some spyshots of the new Corvette SS surfaced but we had to remove them has GM contacted several website already. To make the story short, an EMO TRANS employee took the spyshot pictures while the car was in transit from the USA to Germany for some Nurburgring testing.

"Lufthansa cargo in Michigan. we got a redz06 and a regular orangec6. the z06 has some black tarp on the hood and the fenders, i cant tell if its a center. supercharger its to dark outside...ok its gotta be supercharged i just saw a intercooler."

Unfortunately for this volunteer photographer, GM was not very pleased by the final pictures.

To the guy who said thats why Viper went to 600 hp the next year well da..thats why Vette got into the 500 HP. to compete with Viper they were there a long time before Mustang GT’s and Vettes thought of it. Now they want to be top dog again. You said that Vette beat Viper in all aspects your right they beat them with the highest price too stupid ass. Get a clue.

Its a battle of muscle car dominance again like back in the 60’s. As for Chevy back then and now thats all they had was the Vette. Oh and I own a throw back I have a 67 Stingray Roadster. I had owned the big block Mopars back then and would love to have a Viper myself. I also thought they were using the 6.2 all alluminum engine out of the Escalade’s and Caddy’s. This article said the 7.0...don’t think thats right.

Good call "badestofthebad"? The 06 Z06 did beat the 06 Viper in nearly every category possible, 0 to 60, quartermile, 1/8 mile, PRICE, handling. This is why the Viper jumped to 600 hp the next year, so I am sure the SS Vette or whatever they call will once again DENVENOMIZE the pile of crap Dodge calls a Viper. Oh yeah learn to spell BADDEST, see 2 D’s. Thanks.

Once again the powerplant is NOT a 7.0L V8. It is a 6.2. The LS7’s cylinder walls are to thin to handle high boost for long durations, it has a syamised bore for crying out loud. The 6.2 will add more stiffness to the sidewall allowing for more boost. Also the 6.2’s block will be shared with a truck varient, destined for the Escalade and possibly a sport Silverado varient (think SS).

Even fast-auto thread about this car has been removed... Chevy must not be very happy about those pictures that show the new corvette SS engine and body totally uncovered.

Don’t worry Chevy, anyway we love the new body style and engine sounds good even on the spyshots. You are all good..
