Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: Fastest. Vette. Ever

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 leaked on magazine cover

Top speed of the ZR1 is over 210 miles per hour. We're also told the standard "Low Wing" aero package generates 70 per cent more downforce than the standard setup on the Z06, while adding the two-way-adjustable "High Wing" into the mix reduces lift by 60 per cent more than the "Z07 Performance Package".

Chevrolet says the 2019 Corvette ZR1 goes on sale in spring 2018, with pricing to be announced closer to that time.

Confirming (exceeding, actually) rumors that broke last week, Chevrolet parent company GM proclaimed Sunday that the chieftain of Corvettes would return for 2019 packing 755 horsepower and 715 pounds-feet of torque courtesy of a supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V-8.

This comes thanks to a new engine, the LT5, which was built just for the Zr1 and will likely remain exclusive to it.

Based on the seventh-generation Corvette coupe, the ZR1 gets a reworked front bumper with larger air inlets and a small carbon fibre winglets that help generate more grip at higher speeds.

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. One thing to note about the rear wing is that, while it offers a pretty sleek touch, and added performance benefits, it prevents drivers from being able to easily access the trunk.

General Motors has revealed a new iteration of the Corvette ZR1 that it's calling the fastest and most capable in the nameplate's history.

The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is here, and it's really not a vehicle you'd want to get on the wrong side of. Why? The new ZR1 has four additional radiators to keep it from getting hot under the collar, giving it a total of 13. Both of the wing options are tied into the chassis, which is how it is in the Corvette Racing C7.R version, ass well. The kit also includes special chassis tuning and Magnetic Ride Control, along with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer tires.

On the other hand, if all you want to do is stand out, then by all means go for the Sebring Orange Design Package, which slathers the hue on the brake callipers, sill and splitter accent stripes, seat belts and interior stitching, on top of the Sebring Orange Tintcoat paint and bronze aluminium interior trim. Other available features include competition sport seats, a performance data recorder, Bose premium audio system and a carbon fiber rimmed sport steering wheel.
