Chevy's new Mid-Engined Corvette is going to forever change the landscape of supercars. According to rumors published from Car and Driver, the base model will use a 6.2-liter V8 making around 500 horsepower mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. They further suspect this base model will only cost around $60,000 a huge value in today' market where a fully loaded Golf R pushes $50,000.
Of course, there will be Z06 and ZR1 models that push the performance envelope and price. According to sources at Car and Driver, the Z06 model will supposedly use a 5.5-liter Flat-plane-crank V-8, and the ZR1 will add twin turbos to the Z06's 5.5-liter V8 for more insane power. Then there's the fabled range-topping Corvette Zora that will take the ZR1's drivetrain and add electric motors to push final power numbers to around 1,000hp.
