Corvette ZR1 Will Be Fastest and Most Powerful of Its Kind

Corvette ZR1 Will Be Fastest and Most Powerful of Its Kind

The first one allows for the highest top speed possible, the ZR1 reaching more than 210 miles per hour (338 kph) - and even featuring the base aero tweaks, this option still has up to 70 percent more downforce than the Z06.

The cast aluminium block and heads some how withstand huge forces, forces of which translate to an SAE-certified 563kW (755hp) and 969Nm (715 lb-ft). However, those who prefer paddle-shifting can now spec an eight-speed automatic transmission instead. The standard 2019 ZR1 will come with a seven-speed manual, keeping the purists happy in the process.

The "Low Wing" features a small trunk-mounted rear wing that allows the auto to achieve its top speed - though its still generates 70 percent more downforce than the standard Z06.

The 2019 ZR1 will go on sale from June 2018 with the base price to be around $130,000 (Rs 84.9 lakh, excluding import duty and other costs).

The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever - the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1. To rectify this, Chevrolet has added an additional four radiators to the ZR1.

Okay, so the Corvette ZR1 isn't in that territory.

With the low wing and the V8 working in tandem the ZR1 is capable of reaching a top speed of 338km/h.

Both aero packages also include a front underwing.

As expected, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is powered by a supercharged LT5 pushrod engine which features both direct injection and port injection.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back", said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, during the ZR1's Dubai, Dubai Debut.

While the original version of the "shaker" appeared atop the Falcon's Holley carburettor, Chevrolet's modern version is affixed to the supercharger of its 6.2-litre V8 which pokes through the bonnet as a carbon fibre shell.

Inside, Motor Trend says, the new ZR1 features leather seats with "suede-like microfibre" highlights, along with "an option to make them heated and cooled".

Along with aero bits, the ZTK Performance Pack brings Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, and a special chassis and suspension tune.

As standard the interior of the vehicle gets heated and cooled Nappa leather seats, a carbon fibre rimmed steering wheel and a Bose premium sound system. Pricing was not announced.

The ZR1 also sports aggressive new design elements, including a more sculpted hood, larger and lower air intake grilles above a more prominent splitter and a massive rear spoiler.
