Super Vette Spied! Again!: Chevy’s 650-hp Corvette SS caught heading in for EPA testing

Not even a month has passed since we first reported on Chevrolet’s plans for a super Corvette, a halo model well in excess of the already superb Z06.

you really think its just reaching the 650HP mark or its over it..I bet its got 680+ but its a consevative number..
and 650 vs. 505 HP???
It will be alot more..its more than just the engine..and though smaller packs quite a punch..bigger is not always better..they might of gone with a smaller engine to balance out the weight of the supercharger and the handeling they were going for..more at steak than just 1/4 here..this cars going for the gold in speed..and price..heck the Z06 right now is a bargain at 70K and nearly dominates everything out there..

good point about the balance weight thing...but since u are getting a smaller engine i think this car shouldint be no 100,000 ..ill go buy a z06 supercharge it or turbo for same price and kill the ss/stingray or whatever it is...i hope its around same price as a viper lol so it can make the viper look like a pile haha

I'm sure the new Vette is more than just a different motor, look for many other upgrades over the Z06 via suspension, chassis, etc

There's no way they could get a 7L blown motor emissions certified.

You're telling me the LS7 is getting a blower? I call bull**** on that

The naturally aspirated version barely gets through EPA certification, not to mention the gas guzzler tax. I stand by my statement there is no way a supercharged LS7 would be emission certified.

the "SS" Corvette is a 6.2L supercharged, not a 7.0L
