"Blue Devil" gets a real name: ZR1

Well, the super-Corvette has been bounced around from name to name a billion times...

Blue Devil
ZL1
Stingray
SS
.....among others...

Looks like perhaps the official name is ZR1, according to Motor Trend's blog:
http://blogs.motortrend.com/6215473/...ts-a-name-zr1/

I can dig that, a nice shoutout to the car's history.

But then again this is reported by Motor Trend, and they're pretty good at getting things wrong.

We'll see the GM says.. THEN we'll know what the truth is.

I'd read in another automotive magazine some time ago that it would be called the Z07?

Nice! I like the ZR-1 better than the Z07 and several of the other names. In all honestly they could name it creampuff and it wouldn't matter all the other exotics will just call it gone. .

I noticed in the article they mentioned a new quad cam V8 debut in 09. Im going on a witch hunt if that "modular crap" touches a camaro. I dealt will it in mustangs, I dont want it again. LS3 for the last time.

As for the vette Im glad it has the ZR-1 nameplate or....SS.
