2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Unveiled: Testing Radical Wing Designs

Published May 4, 2024 at 5:06 PM

Chevrolet enthusiasts, this! The 2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is revving up to become the ultimate high-performance sports car, recently caught in action at the Nürburgring racetrack in Germany.

The spy photos reveal two ZR1 prototypes, each sporting distinctive wing designs and showcasing a new level of aerodynamic prowess.

Double Wing Variants: One prototype was spotted with a gargantuan rear wing, much larger than that of the Z06 model's Z07 package, featuring taller struts and a broader mainplane. Meanwhile, the second ZR1 prototype had a comparatively smaller wing resembling the Z06's. This difference could indicate two potential aero packages that Chevy might offer to cater to different preferences. Alternatively, these tests might be intended to evaluate the aerodynamic effects of each design.

Enhanced Ventilation: The ZR1 prototypes reveal further improvements over the Z06, particularly in terms of venting. The familiar triangular inlet remains, now accompanied by a secondary smaller intake and a vent perched atop the shoulders. The hood has been modified to incorporate a deep vent, likely eliminating the frunk (front trunk) to maximize airflow toward the rear wing.

With a 670-hp flat-plane-crank V-8 and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an extreme machine, and the ZR1 aims to elevate that experience even further. With the addition of two turbochargers to the Z06's existing 5.5-liter V-8, the ZR1 is expected to deliver over 800 horsepower and clock 0-60 mph in under 2.5 seconds.


For those curious about pricing, the 2025 ZR1 is estimated to start around $150,000, positioning it as a compelling alternative to its European supercar competitors. Chevrolet fans have every reason to look forward to the ZR1, which might become the final pure-internal-combustion version of the Corvette before the transition to electrification.
