The 2025 Corvette ZR1 Reveal is Set for July 25, 2024

The Corvette faithful have been waiting for years to see the ultra-powerful mid-engine supercar. We are now just a month away.

Chevrolet is now committed to debuting the 2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on July 25, 2024. The wait has been brutal for the Corvette faithful as the ZR1 is the car that dreams are made of. The ZR1 signifies a pinnacle vehicle in the Chevrolet food chain, and it is expected that the 2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will blow the doors off its competitors, including the Corvette Z06. Chevrolet is still not confirming any details at this point. Chevrolet only confirmed the vehicle’s existence earlier this year, even though spies have seen it testing at Nürburgring in Germany for at least a year. Chevrolet has been teasing the date, but no photos of the supercar.

2025 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

As I have reported previously, fans are expecting the mid-engine Corvette ZR1 to build on everything that exists in the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Z06’s flat-plane-crank 5.5-liter V-8 engine kicks out 670 horsepower. The Z06 got the high-horsepower engine from the Chevrolet Corvette Race Team. If the ZR1 turbocharges the same or improved engine, it could push the ZR1 to over 800 horsepower. Some Corvette forum members are estimating that if the ZR1 has any sort of hybrid assistance, the twin-turbocharged engine could reach over 1000 horsepower.

Currently, the C8 mid-engine Corvette comes in a Stingray version with 495 horsepower, the Z06 with 670 horsepower and the E-Ray, which is an electrified version, with 655 horsepower. The ZR1 version of the C8 could be the Corvette supercar that competes with Ferraris and Lamborghinis.


A previous Corvette tease video shows the supercar with a large rear wing but little else is visible. No word on any performance statistics but the 2025 Corvette ZR1 is expected to start more expensive than the E-Ray or the Z06, so closer to $150,000. 

We’ll finally get details on perhaps the most anticipated vehicle of the decade on July 25th.
