Things You Need To Know About The 2019 Corvette ZR1

Chevrolet official website Promotional

Chevrolet has created and unveiled the most powerful and fastest Corvette in the history of the automaker: the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

In case all that won't say ZR1 enough, Chevy has also developed a special Sebring Orange paint scheme and appearance package for the auto. A Ferrari 812 Superfast will still embarrass you in the parking lot, but only by 34 HP.

The new "King of the Hill" has a 755 hp 6.2-liter V8 sticking out of its hood, thanks to a supercharger that's over 50 percent larger than the one used by the now relatively weak-kneed 650 hp Corvette Z06. Few were assembled through 1972, because in order to get the ZR1 goody bag, Corvette buyers needed to pass on creature comforts. The standard 2019 ZR1 will come with a seven-speed manual, keeping the purists happy in the process. Basically, it predicts your next gear change and then automatically blips the throttle just before, to match the engine speed. How does 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque strike you?

Chevrolet claims a top speed of more than 210mph, although no other performance figures have been provided. It's the first time the ZR1 has offered two-pedal driving, but don't groan just yet: GM claims the 650-hp Z06 hits 60 miles per hour and runs the quarter-mile in 2.95 and 10.95 seconds, respectively, with the automatic. You'll get a great soundtrack as it does that, too, courtesy of a brand new exhaust system.

Saudis holding PM Hariri hostage, says Lebanon President

Do you want to go fast, or do you want to go around corners?

Pricing has not yet been announced; it should be known closer to the arrival of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on the market next spring. Do you pick the Low Wing, or the High Wing?

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.

950 - The ZR1's optional fixed rear wing generates 950 pounds of downforce at the track, according to Chevy.

Iran, Iraq Refuse Israeli Offer of Aid Following Deadly Earthquake
But repeated meetings between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Vladimir Putin have not produced a firm and clear agreement.

Still, as you'd hope, that's not to say that the converse isn't true in either case. Not to forget the the suspension, which has been tuned specifically for the package, and pairs with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for added grip.

Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009. Only 2,000 to 3,000 cars are expected to be produced each year, in fact.

In 1990, the Corvette ZR-1 returned to the lineup with a Lotus-engineered and Mercury Marine-built, 32-valve, aluminum-block, 5.7-liter V8 dubbed the LT5.

It will have more horsepower than a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 488 GTB or the exotic Ford GT.
