Not bad looking font but the front middle opening looks too small

Now we know a few things 750 hp 680tq 140 pounds more weight in the nose.
90 percent Z06 and interior with a new front clip. Starts at 120,000.00
So my guess is around 150k loaded.
Huge wing is non starter! The wheel cap is the same one on the GS machined cup wheels.

I love it. Appears it's going to be a beast.

Not sure why the torque number is so low. Callaway gets 777 lb ft on its Z06 package. I wonder if the hp and torque numbers are final, post EPA certification numbers, or are preliminary estimates.

The must have run out of time styling the front fender vents. Rest of it is smokin'.

The way I read the article the final numbers are not published. So you know the final ones will have to meet and/or exceed what has been stated much like the C6ZR1 reveal came in at 620hp. I like what I am seeing here and might have to get one instead of an F car I am looking at.

Good thing it is optional then.

It will be a beast but do I love the look?
Not so much here! The Z06 is the better looking car more practical car choice. This car starts
at 120k. But as shown expect more 140k with another level past that.
Great for some guys. But for me? I'm where I want to be.

On the Callaway numbers. Your right 757 and 777 sounds like more.
Not sure where those numbers are from. I don't think the Callaway is going to run as quick or quicker than the ZR1. The one Callaway dyno I did see. One came in to my tuners shop. My tuner looked at the tune. According to my tuner
the tune did not look good. Granted it was an auto but the graft laid over my
M7 Z06 with a Halltech graft. Showed a little less power output than my Z06 which dyno'd 604 at the time.

The article states both M7 and A8 with same ratios as the Z06.

I also like that they have eliminated the spats that the Z06 has. Those were a turn off for me.

Time to start a new discussion. Will the ME be close to the ZR1 in performance or better than? If neither will it be considered a bust?

Default Jason and keeks2915 called it years ago

From a July 15, 2011 post by Jason:

"If I was a betting man I would put money on a 700hp C7 ZR1 or equivalent in 2015-2016. I'm just speculating though."

Then on Sept. 22, 2012, keeks2915 posted:

"True hotrod of c7 will be 2016" and "I would guess the zr1 hotrod would arrive around 2016 to compete with the SRT 10 viper...."

The detail of keeks2915's posts showed he had accurate info. And I don't think Jason was speculating. Both turned out to be correct.

Nice! Let's hope a few suspension adjustments are made to facilitate putting the massive power down.

What killed it for me was the 140lbs it gained in the front. I read the article, really not too impressed. I was really looking forward to the release, too. Still looks great though. Waiting for the outcry for no ZR1 emblems on the front fenders.lol
