2008 Corvette Z07

2008 Corvette Z07 Right on the tail of the 2008 Corvette LS3 announcement, we have some fantastic spy shots of the upcoming Super Vette, whether it’s the Corvette Z07 or Corvette SS. The name is still up in the air as far as we know, but it’s nice to have some actual shots of what the fastest Corvette ever will look like.

Best guess at this point is that a 6.2 liter LS9 version of the fantastic small block V8 will make it’s way under the hood of the new Vette. Supercharged, of course – horsepower estimates are sitting right around the 650 HP mark, and that’s purported to be underrated. Six speed manual only – no slushbox here. If you can’t shift your own gears, there’s a nice 436 HP LS2 Vette for you; you just can’t have the big daddy Vette.

Pricing is wildly speculative right now, but I’d wager to say that this new Corvette will be the first to break the $100,000 barrier – I’m thinking $115,000 before options. Anyone else want to venture a guess?
