The Monstrous Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Has Been Revealed In Full

Meet the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever built, coming to "retake its supercar crown" according to Chevrolet. Its 6.2L supercharged V8 LT5 develops 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque. This is sent through either a seven-speed manual transmission or a new eight-speed automatic (first ever auto ZR1). At the rear the standard ZR1 comes with a low set wing that provides 70 per cent more downforce than the Corvette Z06's aerodynamic package.

The top speed, Chevy says, is 210 miles per hour. The second aero package unsurprisingly includes a large two-way adjustable rear wing, which produces 60 percent more downforce than a Z06 with the optional performance pack.

The Corvette ZR1 will go on sale next year but Chevrolet isn't revealing the all important number on the price just yet.

The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever - the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1. Both of the wing options are tied into the chassis, which is how it is in the Corvette Racing C7.R version, ass well.

That's 950 lbs pushing down the back, and to complement that, the ZTK Performance Package also includes a front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (instead of the run-flat Super Sports), and specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for greater cornering speeds.

GM says that, on the racetrack, the new ZR1 is the highest-performing Vette in the nameplate's production history. Meanwhile, the new Sebring Orange Design Package is all about making yourself noticed, inside and out.

Also on Saturday, the US and South Korean navies launched four days of joint drills off the east coast of South Korea. The exercises will also involve 11 US Aegis ships and seven South Korean naval vessels, including two Aegis ships.


Tech wise, the ZR1 doesn't initially look to be as well-equipped as some European cars, but it appears to have a standard touchscreen infotainment system, likely GM's MyLink system which offers features such as data connections and iOS And Android phone integration.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1's front end is created to channel maximum air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling.

The carbon-fiber hood has a raised center with openings to clear enough room for the engine. The brakes are equally monstrous two-piece carbon ceramic rotors, with fixed six-piston aluminum calipers at the front.

The ZR1 hits dealerships in the spring.

Despite its extreme performance abilities, the ZR1 will be available with some luxury features such as a premium audio system and heated-and-cooled leather seats. On the inside, Sebring Orange cars also have orange seat belts, orange stitching and various bits of bronze aluminium trim.
