Nevertheless, don't expect this to be the kind of lightweight supercharger pulley upgrade that brings a "respectable" muscle bump. Oh no. We're talking about a major boost here, one that has seen the V8 jumping from the already-manic 638 hp factory output to 1,000 hp.
In fact, as it happens with many built machines, the pony rating is not 100 percent precise, with the pumped-up 6.2-liter V8 actually delivering north of 1,000 horses.
As we mentioned above, this ZR1 was recently taken to a half-mile event, where the car managed to make the most out of its engine. And since we talked about this, we should probably give you some figures - this ZR1 can hit over 190 mph (make that 306 km/h if you're a fan of the metric system) at the end of the measured distance.
In a less than surprising move, this Corvette has also seen its voice growing stronger in the process. As a result, the ZR1's soundtrack can now easily take over an entire event.
And since the majestic ZR1 didn't just face the speed trap, the Chevy got to trample quite a few hp heroes in the process. From a BMW to a C7 Corvette, this ZR1 showed everybody who's boss. And we're inviting you to check it all out in the piece of footage below.
