Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: Fastest. Vette. Ever

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: Fastest. Vette. Ever

While no pricing information is available, Chevrolet says the ZR1 supercar will go on sale in the spring of 2018.

Designers gave the ZR1 a new fascia "to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling", GM said.

GM revealed the auto at a studio sound stage on Sunday, and it will be featured at the Dubai Motor Show on Tuesday where it will be shown with many other six- and seven-figure luxury vehicles. Chevrolet didn't go into specifics but confirmed the model has a top speed in excess of 210 miles per hour (337 km/h). With a supercharged LT5 6.2L V8 the Corvette ZR1 has an insane 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft. of torque.

The ZR1 will be available with either a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic - marking the first time an automatic transmission has been available on a ZR1 Corvette. 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.

Moreover, the pack containing the high wing also brings a front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and Magnetic Ride Control to the table.

Both of the rear wings are tied directly into the car's chassis, as on the C7.R race vehicle, for the best possible strength and stability.

Given its high-speed capabilities, the Corvette ZR1 has some special aerodynamic features.

Three-Carrier Strike Force Exercise to Commence in Western Pacific
North Korea will be at the top of the agenda as Trump tries to pressure Beijing into cracking down on Pyongyang. He mentioned that this type of operation is very complex.

The trick is that one of those two pieces is the actual carbon fiber intercooler cover, meaning that the engine is out in the open through what GM calls a "halo" hood.

The new LT5 V8 makes most of its extra power gains over the old LT4 thanks to a 52-percent larger displacement supercharger.

In addition to the larger supercharger, Chevrolet has also utilised a new dual-fuel injection system, combining direct and port injection to liberate those huge figures.

Chevrolet has spent a lot of time making sure the ZR1 stays cool when driven hard (you might remember the Z06 having some rather well-publicised heat soak issues).

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 in the photos is decorated with the Sebring Orange Design Package. 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.

"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.
