Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 revealed

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 revealed

Romance and drama aside, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a thing to behold. That's because the follow up to the already insane Z06 will boast a lot more. Buyers will get to choose between a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic.

What's more, you don't need to know how to use a clutch pedal to drive the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

"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. This new ZR1 puts down 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque from a 6.2-liter supercharged V8. Bottom line: This new C7 ZR1 is the most powerful and fastest Corvette ever built. The LT5 delivers the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Z06's LT4 supercharger. It's the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1. The hallowed three-letter moniker returns packing more aero, greater performance and, of course, heaps of extra power to go around.

An all-new front fascia is created to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13. The model also features a unique carbon-fiber "halo" hood and four new radiators. If you're more about the cornering, you can option the large High Wing package that slows it down a little, but adds significant downforce for hard cornering, as well as maximizing the visual punch in the face kicked off by those signature cannon exhausts. Chevrolet didn't go into specifics but confirmed the model has a top speed in excess of 210 miles per hour (337 km/h).

Bills defense trampled in 47-10 loss to Saints
Still, the Saints come to Western New York riding a six-game winning streak after an 0-2 start to the season. Coach Sean Payton said in his postgame press conference that all signs are positive with Lasco's condition.

"As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1's design supports its capability in every way", says exterior design manager Kirk Bennion. The standard Low Wing is the one that has the least drag and enables the ZR1 to hit its claimed top speed of over 335 km/h; even so, the auto generates up to 70% extra downforce compared to a stock Z06 in this form. At the rear the standard ZR1 comes with a low set wing that provides 70 per cent more downforce than the Corvette Z06's aerodynamic package. You also get special chassis tuning, Magnetic Ride Control and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber. Both wings are connected to the chassis for added stability.

A new Sebring Orange Design Package will make it virtually impossible to ignore the new Corvette ZR1.

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.

Inside the cockpit, Chevrolet threw in its best mix of materials, including leather for the seats and suede microfiber inserts. Chevy will also offer heated and vented Napa leather seats, as well as a carbon fiber-trimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, Performance Data Recorder, Bose premium audio system and more.
