755-Horsepower 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 is the Fastest, Most Powerful Vette Ever

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 leaked on magazine cover

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has been showcased and it will be the most powerful iteration of the Corvette to go in production.

"I've never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there's never been one like this before", said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. Although its V-8 displaces the same 6.2 liters as the Z06's also-supercharged LT4 V-8, the ZR1's supercharger has 52 percent more displacement (that is, volume) than the Z06 'charger.

The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever - the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1. Another GM first is the car's dual fuel injection system, comprising primary direct injection as well as port injection. The vehicle will be available with a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic.

The C7 generation Corvette has reached its peak, and it's called the ZR1. Chevrolet isn't quite making the decision as binary as that, but when you're ordering your shiny new 2019 Corvette ZR1 you do have a choice to make. The carbon weave is perfectly aligned with the body panel, but the intercooler cover will move around when the engine is running, since it's part of the drivetrain.

The ZR1 has also undergone a thorough redesign, with designers opening up the front fascia to allow for improved cooling, while the massive power bulge bonnet is required to fit the larger supercharger sitting atop the engine. The aero packages feature stanchion-mounted wings. The second is an available two-way-adjustable High Wing for maximum downforce - about 60 percent more than the Z06's Z07 Performance Package - to return the quickest lap times. Both wings are tied to the ZR1 chassis, much like the C7.R race auto, to ensure maximum stability.

"As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1's design supports its capability in every way", says exterior design manager Kirk Bennion. 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 package also gets a unique front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance summer tires, and specific chassis and suspension tuning. Aside from giving it a very noticeable Sebring Orange hue, it also paints the brake calipers, rocker and splitter accents, seat belts and interior contrast stitching with the brightly-colored hue.

GM hasn't put a price tag on the 2019 Corvette ZR1, but will go on sale in the Spring.
