Meet Chevy's 2019 Corvette ZR1, the fastest Corvette ever made

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

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). This upgrade installed racing-grade suspension, braking, and cooling components, along with a heavy-duty 4-speed manual transmission.

With the low wing and the V8 working in tandem the ZR1 is capable of reaching a top speed of 338km/h. Because of the American supercar's ability to hit such an insane speed, Chevrolet engineers have created two new aero packages to help with downforce. A "standard rear low wing" will serve up that 210-mph dragstrip speed, while an adjustable "high wing" will enhance downforce and improve racetrack go-around-corners performance.

The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is bound to maximize performance and modify its form to satisfy function.

It's the most powerful production auto Chevrolet has ever made, and probably the meanest-looking. The new model weighs 10 pounds more compared to the Z06 version, being with 171 pounds heavier than the previous ZR1.

Georgia , Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson top this week's College Football Playoff ratings and Associated Press poll. The second week of rankings by the College Football Playoff Committee was unchanged from week one.

ZR1 owners will be able to choose between two gearbox options, with either a 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1's aggressive appearance is driven by function, contributing to its distinction as the fastest production Corvette to date.

It's a boutique approach that in many ways is at odds with the "supercar for the people" strategy Chevy has long taken with the Corvette in general, but it makes a lot of sense for the 2019 ZR1. GM added another four radiators to the mix to prevent overheating, and so the ZR1 has a total of 13 heat exchangers. The other three include the 1990 Corvette ZR-1, the 2009 Corvette ZR1, and this upcoming 2019 model. Both packages feature a front underwing - a first for a General Motors vehicle - that increases downforce. The price is yet to be announced, but if you must ask, you probably can not afford it. Count on spending six figures, though, and that's before dealers add markup.

And if you're still not sure your new Vette will stand out enough, "The Corvette ZR1 introduced today also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package", Chevy noted. Other available features include competition sport seats, a performance data recorder, Bose premium audio system and a carbon fiber rimmed sport steering wheel.
