With what the Chevrolet Corvette is offering right now, the arrival of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 would be its biggest nightmare but luckily, Chevrolet has it all under control.
According to Chevrolet, they will be working on a new Chevrolet Corvette model called the ZR1. Not only will the ZR1 be coming in with an upgraded exterior but the model will also be getting an engine upgrade.
We still do not know the actual numbers yet but it is believed that the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be delivering about 700hp to 750hp when it arrives. The current top of the range Chevrolet Corvette offers about 650hp.
While the upcoming 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 will offer about 800hp when it arrives, we also need to remember that the Mustang GT500 will be a lot heavier than the Corvette and that alone could give the Corvette ZR1 all the advantage they need to take down the Mustang GT500.
