reports that the upcoming
supercar will sport the ZR1 moniker when it's finally unveiled at the
Detroit Auto Show
in January. Interchangeably dubbed "Blue Devil," "
," and "Z07" by the automotive media until now, the car will feature a supercharged version of the 6.2-liter LS3 V8 introduced in the 2008 'Vette. Look for power and pricing significantly higher than that of the current top-dog Corvette Z06. Don't worry, the Z06 won't go away. The 505-horse car will simply become Corvette's midrange offering. Man, it's gonna be a party atmosphere in Cobo when they unveil this thing...
Thanks for the tip, Jarrod.
