Zora ArkusDuntov, was seen visiting a McDonald’s drive through restaurant recently, in his low slung Ford GT fighter that is also named as the Zora, like the engineer. The car was still heavily disguised but it couldn’t hide the distinctive cab forward that is supersized. It was unable to hide the rear proportions that had a hint of the mid mounted bay that has the engine.
The Zora is believed to be a remodeling of a Corvette chassis (8th Generation) and this includes a lot of lightweight spaceframe made of aluminum and wrapped in a composite shell of carbon fiber.
The social media was covered with the images of the supercar with McDonald’s sign in the background.
This Corvette is powered by a twin-turbo V6 engine that is similar to the one that is developed for the supercars that are Holden badged. It is also rumored to have a transmission that has a clutch transaxle. It might even have a Tremec sequential gearbox installed in it. There is also a possibility that instead of a V6, the Zora might have an atmo V8 under the hood.
The move of the Corvette to have a mid-mounted engine is believed to be this way because of the design limitations of the current C7. This is because having a powerful V8 on top of the front wheels and sending a huge amount of torque to the rears that are totally unloaded isn’t good for step-off acceleration due to which it is more likely to cause a smoking tire rather than a 0-100km/h sprint in tenths of seconds.
Moving this weight has provided a balance of performance due to which the Zara can be able to support a V8 easily. The first up close look at the latest Chevrolet C8 Corvette would be possible at the Detroit Motor Show that is going to be held in January.
