UPDATE: Just to prove that it's got the goods, GM has released a video of its new supercharged Corvette stretching its legs to a massive 205mph (330km/h) top speed.
At a time when car makers are showing off every imaginable fuel-saving gizmo, General Motors does the math on the 6.2-litre V8 engine in its new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and comes up with more oomph than it expected.
The company's powertrain gurus found that the LS9 engine cranks out 476kW (638bhp) - 20 horsepower more than the estimates they made when GM took the covers off the ZR1 before Christmas.
Simply, the engine is rated at 76kW (103bhp) per litre of displacement or 1.7bhp per cubic inch (6.2 litres is equal to 376 cubic inches).
All that power will push the Corvette ZR1 to a top speed of more than 322km/h, says GM. And torque? The revised official figure is now 810Nm.
The key to power and torque is a Roots-type Supercharger with four-lobe rotors that sits atop the LS9 engine. A liquid-to-air Intercooler is integrated into the Supercharger's housing.
The engine will be hand-built at GM's Performance Build Centre in suburban Detroit, the same plant that hand-builds the LS7 V8 used in the Corvette Z06.
Corvette ZR1 - Jay Leno's Garage
Corvette ZR1. Although a ZR1 was never part of the original C6 plan, legend
has it that at an early review, CEO Rick Wagoner was so impressed that he
wondered aloud, "If that's what you can do with $60,000, I wonder what a
$100,000 Corvette would look like?"

2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! Head 2 Head Ep 42
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our
annual Best Driver's Car competition with this year's winning Porsche 911
Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12
Berlinetta. The Ferrari is the most powerful car we've ever taken around
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12. The
Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM's venerable small block, a
6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of
torque. The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out
gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back
every BDC challenger we've thrown at it. Does the Corvette have what it
takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

MSRP pricing for the Stingray, before options, begins at:
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you

consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

Seat of YouTube!
