    is it a MONSTER? no no no it's a new VETTE Z07

    http://news.windingroad.com/auto-news/captured-corvette-blue-devil-mule-in-the-flesh/

    This might look like an 'ordinary' Z06 with a funky hood scoop, but the crack shooters from Brenda Priddy's crew, with with their long lenses and tuned ears, tell us this Corvette is anything but ordinary.
    Shooter Chris Doane claims that the sound coming from the engine could only be a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, and our sources speculate that this Corvette is pushing nearly 650-horsepower! And when the Corvette SS goes to production- expect the price tag to be in the $100,000 range.
    NO COMENTS 650hp

    I never thought I'd say this, but damn I wish they sold Corvettes here!

    Re: is it a MONSTER? no no no it's a new VETTE Z07

    They plan to sell some in Europe , so forget about the " SS " moniker !
    My bet : "Sting Ray" .

    Re: is it a MONSTER? no no no it's a new VETTE Z07

    That car is NOT the Blue Devil, SS, Supersport or Stingray.
    It is a Z06 with a different hood, but it DOES have the Supercharged LS7 motor which was being tested in that car.
    I have it on good info that the super Vette will be called the Stingray and will look very different from what you see in the picture. It will have about 675hp and will weight between 2800 - 2900 pounds.

    Ronnie - So, are you saying it will be a SC'd LS7 (7.0L)? All the mags say it's a SC'd 6.2L (something other than LS7)...

    From what I have heard at this point is that it will be the Z06 LS7 that is supercharged. Since the car will not be out for a year from now at the earliest, that could change.

    Exactly my thoughts... "SS"'d be too politically incorrect. Just imagine a German car sold in the US by the name of 9/11. uhmmm..., hey... wait...
