It looks good, although itís not really a big surprise as the thinly veiled camoíd cars have been running around for quite awhile now. As to the 750 HP, Callaway has had a nice 757 package available for a couple of years or so, so that isnít earth shattering although a great addition to a factory offering with all the factory warranties, depreciation schedule etc. I imagine the new ZR1 will have some nice technical improvements like cooling etc. Good things coming for all us vette junkies to drool over or run off half cocked and replace our perfect condition C7ís, other gen vettes etc and buy a new ZR1.

Remember that the LT4 in the ZO6 was initially estimated at 620hp or 625hp at it's reveal. They had to test via EPA test before they finally arrived at 650hp. Supercharger cover is a match for the leaked photo Conti put out. The Supercharger does indeed have a carbon fiber canopy with what appears to be vents on the side. It is a shaker hood with a canopy over the SC.

It's 5 bucks, LOL. Besides, I don't want to get nailed for copyright violations

Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad to see the 10rib belt setup, and the dedicated intercooler brick passages.

From what I can see that shaker hood is going to look awesome.

A copy pasta from a FB page:

- Starting price expected to be around $120k
- 7 speed manual and 8 speed automatic
- 1/2" wider than Z06 front wheels
- Mag Ride standard
- Carbon Ceramic Brakes
- 750hp/680 lb-ft LT5 (6.2L, pushrod V8, Eaton supercharger)
- Supercharger produces 52% more air per RPM than the Z06 blower, also 2.9" taller.
- Because of the hood height, car can not be sold in Europe
- Tadge claims the ZR1 can shoot flames out from its exhaust
- NEW fuel delivery system- BOTH PORT INJECTION AND DIRECT INJECTION
- sub 3 second 0-60, sub 11 second 1/4 mile, 210+ mph top speed
- 4 additional heat exchangers (comparing to Z06) in the nose
- Curb weight 3664 lbs, 140 lbs over Z06
- Several aero packages available, RPO "ZTK" as shown in magazine. Wing has 10 degrees of adjustability, contributing to 500 lbs of downforce at speed.
- Wing is attached behind the hatch and spreads the load to the bumper beam.
- Removable top
- 2.5 seconds faster around VIR than Z06
