SPY PHOTOS: Corvette SS Blue Devil
( Worldcarfans ) - The long-anticipated "Blue Devil" Corvette, also referred to as the SS, is in its final development stages and was just caught sporting a bright red paint job. This will be the hottest Corvette ever and will be pitted against such super-sports cars as the Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari's.
Blue Devil appears to be living up to the earlier hype. Our spy photographers have said the car sounds supercharged, acknowledging previous reports from other publications the engine is likely a blown version of the Z06's 7.0-liter V8, producing upwards of 600 bhp. Look for lightweight carbon fiber body parts to reduce weight.We hear 2005 Le Mans class winner Jan Magnussen is turning faster-than-Z06 laps in the Blue Devil at Nurburgring.
Pricing will likely start somewhere around 100,000 US-Dollars when the car makes production in 2008. There won't be any official exports of the car to Europe.
