General Motors has officially confirmed unveiling the mighty 2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 this summer. Thus, we're a few weeks (or maybe days) away from seeing this great American blue-collar supercar with no camouflage on its body whatsoever.
In the meantime, though, enthusiasts keep immortalizing different prototypes of this model that do their thing in the wild. One of the latest encounters with the brand-new Chevy Corvette ZR1 came from a lesser-known YouTube channel called Carsual.

The video uploader came across this magnificent beast that was wearing the usual trippy stickers on its body while driving his Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170. We know what you are probably thinking: that a race of some sort engaged between the two fast rides at one point. But it didn't, as the Chevy was a pre-production prototype probably undergoing some last-minute adjustments, and everything was recorded on a public road.

Nevertheless, it is only a matter of time until the 2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 makes its way to drag strips nationwide, putting its money where its mouth is in direct battles with some very fast rides. Reports indicate it packs a flat-plane crankshaft V8 motor with twin turbocharging, and it might unleash 850 hp (862 ps/634 kW) and 825 pound-foot (1,119 Nm) of torque every time the driver pushes the right pedal to the metal.

The C8 Z06, which enjoys 670 hp (680 ps/500 kW), takes 2.6s seconds to reach 60 mph (97 kph). The electrified E-Ray, with its combined 655 hp (664 ps/489 kW) all-wheel-drive system, is one-tenth of a second faster, and the base Stingray, which boasts up to 495 hp (502 ps/369 kW), can deal with the sprint in 2.9 seconds. It is safe to assume that the ZR1, which will top the Corvette C8 family in terms of performance and pricing, might complete the acceleration in just a little over two seconds, if not quicker.

We can't wait to see how the next Corvette ZR1 behaves in a quarter-mile battle against the mighty Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, especially from a standing start. The discontinued muscle car produces up to 1,025 hp (1,040 ps/765 kW) and 945 pound-foot (1,280 Nm) of torque in its top configuration, with E85 in the tank. Dodge claims it takes just 8.91 seconds to run the quarter mile and adds that the 0-60 mph acceleration takes a neck-snapping 1.66 seconds.

Handling all that power requires an experienced driver who is familiar with this example, and we reckon the same goes for the upcoming 'Vette ZR1. But that is a topic for future stories, as now we have to invite you to watch the video shared below, which shows the 2025 Corvette ZR1 testing on public roads.
