Chevrolet unveils all-new Corvette ZR1

Chevrolet has presented a new track-focused version of its Corvette - and the supercar is the company's most powerful production model yet.

What's more, you don't need to know how to use a clutch pedal to drive the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. There's also direct injection and port injection for the first time, with traditional overhead valve push-rod cam gear, with two valves per cylinder. Its name is LT5. The supercharger is 52% larger in terms of displacement than the one used for the Corvette Z06, which itself is no slouch in the performance department. Furthermore, you can open it in the middle to clear the hardware. Peak torque kicks in at 4,400 rpm, which is 800 rpm higher than the Z06's 650 lb. -ft. of twist.

755 horsepower is plenty to get a 3,524 pound coupe going very, very quickly in a straight line, and the 2019 Corvette ZR1 doesn't disappoint.

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. If you choose the automatic one, your vehicle will have a set of paddle shifters.

The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is bound to maximize performance and modify its form to satisfy function. Hence, the total number of heat exchangers is 13.

On the ZR1's backside sits a less-than-subtle rear wing, which helps it stick to the road when the taps are open on its engine.

Chevrolet has not yet announced acceleration figures for the 2019 ZR1 yet.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back", he added. Even the standard wing is said to create 70 percent more downforce than the Z06's aero kit. In addition to its prodigious output, the ZR1 also offers two different aerodynamic packages including a high wing variant that generates 950 pounds of downforce.

"The package also includes orange brake calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, orange seat belts, orange interior stitching, and unique, bronze aluminum interior trim", Chevy said. Other options include heated and ventilated Nappa leather, carbon-fiber portions of the steering-wheel rim, high-performance seats, Bose premium audio and GM's Performance Data Recorder. Both of the new ZR1's wing setups are attached directly to the chassis, similar to the construction on the Corvette Racing C7.R.
