New Corvette ZR1 Previewed with Central Exhaust, Increased Engine Noise

The latest teaser for the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has been released, giving us a better look at the car’s rear end. Along with the thrilling engine noise in the background, we can see that the ZR1 will feature a central exhaust exit, similar to the Z06 model. This setup indicates that the ZR1 will be equipped with a 5.5-liter turbocharged V8 engine, positioned behind the cabin.

There is still speculation about whether the ZR1 will retain the flat-plane crank of the Z06 or switch to a cross-plane crank design. However, the central exhaust configuration provides strong evidence of the engine setup for the high-performance ZR1.

The video teaser also provides a glimpse of the massive rear wing on the ZR1, which appears to be even larger than the one found on the Z06.
