Chevrolet Forced To Tame Corvette ZR1 For Track Challenge!

By  | 

What is there not to like about the all-new Corvette C7 ZR1. The sports car from Chevrolet is severely underpriced for the power which it has to offer and this has resulted in a craze like no other.

To keep it brief, the C7 ZR1 is priced from $119,995 and it relies on the LT5 engine that can develop 755hp and 715ft-lbs of torque. Together with 13 coolants packed under the hood, the C7 ZR1 promises to offer a track performance like no other.

The only downside to this is that the C7 ZR1 has yet to prove its worth on the track but this will look to change soon as the car has started preparing for an official run around the Nurburgring.

Photos of the ZR1 in Germany circulated online today and it bred a number of discussions from the fans. One particular discussion caught our attention more than the other and it is with the different looking mufflers/resonators on the C7 ZR1.

After researching more on the matter, we came to know that the change was made by Chevrolet and this is so that the C7 Corvette ZR1 can comply to the noise limit for Nurburgring.

Taking the roar out of the ZR1 has made the vehicle less special – or you can also say tame. Let’s hope that it does not have any negative influence to the performance of the Corvette ZR1 at the Ring.
