Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: The Most Powerful Corvette Model

  • 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 leaked on magazine cover

The LT5 boasts a massive 105 hp and 65 lb-ft advantage over the Corvette Z06's LT4 thanks to what Chevrolet calls a more efficient intercooled supercharger with 52 percent more displacement and the brand's first-ever dual fuel-injection system, which combines direction injection with port injection.

Even so, you likely won't be able to match the ZR1's overall performance at its price, no matter how hard you try. Perhaps the best approach to study the new engine in the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 is to consider what came before it. With a top speed quoted at "over 210 mph", they're not wrong. Pricing was not announced.

This may not be the first Corvette ZR1, but it is the first to be offered with an automatic transmission.

This high wing is two-way adjustable, although it reduces the car's top speed, and comes as part of a ZTK Performance Package, including a front splitter and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.

An underbody front wing helps to balance out the handling and leaves plenty of space above it for three air intakes that help feed some of the baker's dozen of heat exchangers needed to keep the ZR1's components cool.

Self-driving bus crashes on its first day of work
The shuttle service in Las Vegas is allowed to carry 15 passengers at a time, ferrying them from one place of the town to another. The shuttle's sensors registered the truck and performed the correct actions, the rep said, by stopping to avoid the accident.

American muscle comes in many shapes and forms, but none are as savage as this - the new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Its 755bhp and 715lb ft of torque make the auto the most powerful Corvette - and most powerful Chevrolet - built to date. This upgrade installed racing-grade suspension, braking, and cooling components, along with a heavy-duty 4-speed manual transmission.

The carbon-fiber hood has a raised center with openings to clear enough room for the engine. To rectify this, Chevrolet has added an additional four radiators to the ZR1. Alternatively, you can specify the High Wing, which maximizes downforce and is optimized for going around corners at track speeds.

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

The Corvette ZR1 introduced today also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package. Both wings are tied to the ZR1 chassis, much like the C7.R race vehicle, to ensure maximum stability. Heated and vented Napa leather-trimmed seating is also available, as well as a carbon fiber-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, Performance Data Recorder, Bose premium audio system and more.

It's good to be the King.
