C7 ZR1 Corvette Engine Spotted?

October 8, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Corvetteonline reports on some photos it received from a reader, by way of a “friend of a friend” inside GM’s prototype center. Pictured in the photo is potentially the C7 ZR1 engine.

What we can see is that the engine is an LT1-style, Gen V Chevy small block, as evidenced by the injector cover shape and the fact that the throttle body is consistent with the ones used on the C7′s LT1. It’s also clearly a twin-rotor supercharged engine with the LSA/LS9 style pulley mounted high on the front, and intercooler plumbing also bearing a resemblance to previous heat exchanger setups.

This engine is said to be a 6.2 liter engine.
