Check Out This 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 As It Rocks Past the 200 MPH Mark
The Chevrolet Corvette C7 ZR1 is, arguably, an instant classic because it marks the end of an era for the Corvette brand being the last of the front-engined models to sport this famous badge. While we’re waiting impatiently for the go-fast versions of the latest, mid-engined ’Vette, let’s all take a moment to remember just how fast the C7 ZR1 really was.
Here’s How the C8 Corvette Fares Against the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500
In the market for an American performance coupé and in a pickle when it comes to picking your poison? Should it be a sports car? Should it be a muscle car? Tough choice, right?
Well, lucky for you, this guy took both the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette and the 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500 on a circuit to tell you how each of them behaves when pushed hard on a winding course.
This Five-Car Mashup Rendering Is the Epitome of Unfulfilled Desire
Renderings often serve as a fun expression of what we expect from new cars or the evolution of current cars. Sometimes, people create fun, unique renderings that look back on iconic cars from the past with a modern twist of what they would look like today. Every now and then, however, something truly amazing comes to digital life, and that’s the case with the rendering we’re about to discuss here. In short, someone took styling cues from a handful of cars that are iconic in their own right and created an all new car that has never existed and never will exist. Is this what it would look like if some of the greatest car companies in the world came together to build a truly unique supercar?
The Hennessey C7 Corvette ZR1 HPE 1200 Can Kick the Hell Out of a McLaren 720S
The McLaren 720S was built with one thing and mind and one thing only. And that’s blistering performance through a combination of power and lightness. The C7 Corvette ZR1 is a nod to the same creed, but it lacks the McLaren’s innate ability to dance around a twisty circuit. While it’s obviously not as light on its feet like the Macca, this particular ZR1 got a helping hand from America’s controversial tuner Hennessey. The helping hand is the HPE 1200 upgrade, one that turned the Corvette into a McLaren 720S squasher. Or dit it?
2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible Gallery
The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible has arrived with a hardtop roof, an increase of 80 pounds or so in weight, and some other significant changes. Highlights include a new rear hatch that doesn’t facilitate viewing of the V-8 hidden behind the rear seats and, now, the rear trunk has its own dedicated cover as opposed to being integrated with the rear hatch as we see on the coupe - this was necessary for the hardtop to be stored when retracted. This might seem a little strange, but it does offer one big benefit: The Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible has the same amount of rear trunk storage as the coupe!
Power output of 495 horsepower with the performance exhaust has remained the same, and Chevy claims the Corvette Convertible can hit 60 mph in around 3 seconds, just a hair slower than the Coupe.
1927 Chevy Coupe Found inside Manasoo Shipwreck in Lake Huron
The Manasoo, a ship that sank back in 1928, was finally found this June and it revealed something unexpected: a 1927 Chevrolet Coupe inside the steamer’s hull. While it’s one of the thousands of shipwrecks lying at the bottom of the Great Lakes, it’s surely one of the few to feature a car onboard.
The nearly-intact wreckage of the ship was found this summer below Lake Huron in Canada and, beyond the unexpectedly good condition of the vessel itself, it also nestled a vintage car that survived through the disaster and was found practically undamaged.
Arguably the hottest and most discussed car to be unveiled in 2019, the Chevy Corvette C8 remains a mystery, with very little official information to run by as of November. Thankfully, the rumor has provided us some data in recent months and now it’s back with pricing information, placing the mid-engined sports car at $169,900 before options.
