Our very reliable sources had a sit down with ‘the Lutz’ last night on the eve of the 2007 LA Auto Show. Bob Lutz, Vice Chairman of GM, was nothing but friendly about sharing what GM has in the works.
While many of you think the 75 year Lutz may not have much ‘need-for-speed,’ our sources say that during casual conversation over dinner, Lutz mentioned that he personally pushed the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 over 200mph at the Michigan Proving Ground.
Lutz also confirmed that the ZR-1 will make its official debut at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. The ZR-1 is expected to be powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine that will produce 650 horsepower.
