The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever - the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1.
There's a new Corvette ZR1 coming to Chevy dealerships next spring. Chevy says the top speed of the ZR1 is more than 210 miles per hour in a news release. The resulting outputs - 755 hp at 6,300 rpm and 715 pounds-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm - are the most in the Corvette's production history, GM says. The 6.2L V8 can be mated to either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.
"I've never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there's never been one like this before", GM product chief Mark Reuss said in a statement. Optionally, customers can fit their new 2019 ZR1 with heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, a carbon-fiber adorned steering wheel and Performance Data Recorder, among other things. Even if you don't want the max downforce of the "High Wing", the base set up still provides a enough tweaks to generate up to 70 percent more downforce than the Z06. These include the tall, racing-style rear wing that is two-way adjustable and new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres (replacing the standard Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber). Both wings are connected directly to the chassis - just like C7.R racecar - for extra strength and stability.
Given its high-speed capabilities, the Corvette ZR1 has some special aerodynamic features. It also has 52 percent more displacement due to the intercooled supercharger system, which was not previously seen in LT4.
In fact, it rams so much air down the V8's throat that it needs two fuel systems to feed it; the motor uses direct injection and supplemental port injection. The model also features a unique carbon-fiber "halo" hood and four new radiators.

Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu expressed shock over the incident and directed the authorities to intensify rescue operations. The tourism department of Andhra Pradesh had given permission for private agencies to operate boats to Bhavani Island regularly.
As an added bonus, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 can be specified with the optional Sebring Orange Design Package. While this doesn't change the supercar's mechanical setup, it does bring the Sebring Orange body paint matched with orange brake calipers, seat belts, stitching and exterior bits, plus a bronze-aluminum interior trim.
The vehicle is undeniably cool, even when it's parked, but will surely look even better when it hits the street and track next spring at a price that hasn't been announced, but will likely be north of the $112,000 the last ZR1 went for in 2012.
The ZR1's leather seats have available microfiber inserts.
As standard the interior of the auto gets heated and cooled Nappa leather seats, a carbon fibre rimmed steering wheel and a Bose premium sound system.
