New flame-throwing 2019 Corvette ZR1 is the fastest yet

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Revealed Boasts Of 754Bhp

Figure on upwards of $130k to get one on your drive when the ZR1 goes on sale in the Spring of 2018.

On Sunday in Dubai, Chevy pulled the cover off the newest, baddest 'Vette: the ZR1. Back in your driveway, it's also the most extreme-looking: An optional massive rear spoiler and wraparound ground effects generate track-smacking downforce, while multiple gaping bumper portals replace the single unit on other Corvettes. Given what we know of it thus far, it wouldn't be hyperbole for Chevy to call its new Corvette ZR1 one of the greatest performance cars on the planet.

For example, the new ZR1 has a redesigned front end with huge air intakes to feed four new radiators, which brings the total heat exchanger count to 13, according to Chevrolet.

The carbon-fiber hood has a raised center with openings to clear enough room for the engine. Chevrolet states that the top speed of the new ZR1 is an astonishing 210 miles per hour. That exceeds the prior-gen ZR1 by at least 5 miles per hour. A "standard rear low wing" will serve up that 210-mph dragstrip speed, while an adjustable "high wing" will enhance downforce and improve racetrack go-around-corners performance. The package also gets a unique front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance summer tires, and specific chassis and suspension tuning.

As for the ZR1's interior, there are two packages available, 1ZR and 3ZR, that can dress up the cabin with a carbon fiber trimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, Bose audio, or Napa leather seats with heating and cooling.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Revealed Boasts Of 754Bhp

The ZR1 ushered supercharging into the Corvette's wheelhouse almost a decade ago, and this C7 ZR1 assures it's alive and well. From the most recent leak, we already had a pretty good idea what this vehicle would be: basically a Z06 with a huge wing and 750 horsepower thanks to a larger throttle body, bigger supercharger, better cooling, and more potent fuel injection system. Another GM first is the car's dual fuel injection system, comprising primary direct injection as well as port injection. The other three include the 1990 Corvette ZR-1, the 2009 Corvette ZR1, and this upcoming 2019 model.

The ZR1 is available with either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox, equipped with paddle shifters, marking the first time an automatic has been offered in the ZR1.

Chevy is playing the 0-60 miles per hour and quarter mile numbers close to its chest right now. The manual is a few ticks slower.

Its 755bhp and 715lb ft of torque make the vehicle the most powerful Corvette - and most powerful Chevrolet - built to date.
