Z06-based Corvette upgrade boasts 32% larger supercharger, triple intercoolers, and consistent power - lap after lapThe Numbers - Callaway Cars today announced power numbers and performance for the flagship model in their performance car lineup. Equipped with Callaway’s GenThree Supercharger, the Corvette Z06 now produces 757 bhp @ 6,200 rpm and 777 lb-ft @ 4,500 rpm (SAE). A launch to 60 mph is now achieved in 2.8 seconds, and a quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 131 mph.

Why Go Big, When You Can Go Bigger? - Size Matters. To reach that power (which is up from 650 bhp / 650 lb-ft) the supercharger itself needed to be bigger since the output of a positive displacement supercharger is proportionate to its size. The Callaway GenThree supercharger is 32% larger in displacement (2300cc vs 1740cc).

Cooling - Callaway engineers recognize that a key contributor to maximizing power is reduction of inlet air temperature associated with forced induction. Callaway’s unique triple-element intercooler configuration provides significantly lower and well-managed inlet charge air temperatures than single or smaller dual-element designs. The supercharger housing extends through the hood, thereby exposing it to outside ambient airflow and adding an element of convective cooling. The supercharger is visible without opening the hood, and heat is inherently extracted from the engine compartment.

Bold Packaging - The supercharger assembly is no longer cramped below the hood line. The completely redesigned manifold helps maintain consistent charge air temperatures with exceptionally low

New C8 Mid-Engine Rendering

Is this the new C8? Some think this is a pretty accurate rendering. Thanks Corvette Blogger and BUZZARD!

Would the artist that rendered this C8 Corvette Zora ZR1 please set forward! Because your render of the rumored mid-engine Corvette is one of the best we’ve seen yet. We found this posted on Facebook and seaching BUZZART has led us nowhere, at least when it comes to automotive designs, so if you’re out there, let us know!

The rendered C8 Corvette is part of a trio of images, first showing the C7 Corvette Stingray and then evolving into what the next generation Corvette might look like in a mid-engine configuration.

There has been talk of Corvette going to a mid-engine design since the 1960s. And while the rumors and concepts have come and gone, for whatever reason, it seems like now is the perfect time to make the jump from concept to production a reality.

Our hope, should Chevrolet really decide to pull the trigger, is to see the Corvette line evolve into two platforms. The first and still the most popular (at least in terms of sales) would be the traditional front engine/rear wheel drive design that is for the everyman. A car that continues to kick German and Italian ass and yet remains an affordable daily driver. After all, in 62 years the Corvette team has gotten pretty good at delivering such a car and with sales of the C7 back over 30,000 cars/year for the last two years, there is no reason to end that run.

The second platform is all about red meat. A mid-engine Corvette platform that allows the team to break free from the the ‘rules’ of traditional Corvette design and take bow-tie

Our Week with a Corvette Stingray: A Review

Jun 25, 2015 - 3:47 PM - by NickJ

What can I say about the Stingray that hasn't already been reported on by folks that have been in the industry for the last 3 decades? The print guys have their formula and their matrices that they apply to every single car that they get into the shop. You will read those magazines and will get the same basic story no matter what the cover looks like. I could mimic those stories and regurgitate facts, figures, and talk about skid-pad performance as it relates to the on-board g-meter. I am not going to do that. Being the avid enthusiasts you are, you have already read those stories. What I am going to do is tell you a story about two, regular 'ol enthusiasts (CK, or "cereal killer," and myself) getting to have the key to a 2015 C7 Corvette Convertible for a week.


Just a week or two ago, a shiny white C7 rolls into a parking spot outside our office with its chrome wheels sparkling in the mid-day sun. The porter steps out, and we meet him on the curb. Immediately, we descend on the car, as we have yet to experience the C7 sans the "this is someone else's car" etiquette of car shows and dealerships. The obligatory walk-around and poking and prodding begins while I step inside the office to sign my life away to be one of the care-takers for the week.

Once I am able to slip my backside into the red leather seat, I am transported back a few years and am reminded of an initial experience that solidified my "car guy" status: When I was much younger, my mom was seeing a guy who had a C3 Corvette Stingray. As many of you remember, the C3 was the most radical styling that GM had done in the Corvette line-up to that point. The tall wheel arches elevated like sharp continental ridges at either edge of your field of vision. The center of the hood bulged to make room for that carb and air cleaner atop a wonderful big block V8. Straight ahead of you is the... [Read More]
