New ZR1 is the most powerful 'Vette yet

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Rear Three Quarter High Wing

The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever - the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 isn't just the most powerful Corvette yet, but the most powerful General Motors auto ever made. "Centered on its Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior color, 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".

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 comes as close as ever to giving foreign supercar brands like Aston Martin, Ferrari and Lamborghini a real run for the money - and, indeed, at $130,000, this 755 horsepower King Kong Corvette is a veritable bargain.

As the fourth ZR1 in Corvette history, the 2019 version is equipped with a direct- and port-injected, supercharged, 6.2-liter V8 engine, appropriately named the LT5. The biggest surprise, of course, is the power. That means more than a Pagani Huayra Roadster (with 754 HP), more than a McLaren 720S (with 710 HP), and more than a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (with 707 HP).

This is what you want to know: 755 horsepower, 715 lb. -ft. of torque, top speed of over 210 miles per hour, according to General Motors.

52 - According to Chevy, the ZR1's Eaton supercharger displaces 52 percent more air than the Z06's LT4 supercharger. For the first time ever, the ZR1 will be available with an automatic transmission.

With all the power comes issues of cooling, something previous Corvettes have struggled with. The vehicle will be available with a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. It features Active Rev Matching, which Chevrolet debuted on the current-generation Corvette. However, there are still some figures we don't know.

Kizer returns, but Browns still blow it, losing to Detroit 38-24
The clock expired before the Browns could get off another player , and Jackson responded with obvious anger on the sideline. The loss drops the Browns to 0-9 on the season and 1-24 under head coach Hue Jackson.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1's aggressive appearance is driven by function, contributing to its distinction as the fastest production Corvette to date. The eight-banger also gets a new dual direct/port injection system that both enhances performance and delivers a cleaner burn. You can go the low route with the car's standard, fixed Low Wing, which is designed with top speed in mind.

Chevrolet finally has removed the camouflage from the new track-focused Corvette. Do you pick the Low Wing, or the High Wing?

If you're after blazing quick laps on the track, go for the High Wing setup that boasts 60 percent more downforce (at an estimated 430kg) than the Z06 fitted with the Z07 Performance Package.

Still, as you'd hope, that's not to say that the converse isn't true in either case.

Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009. Only 2,000 to 3,000 cars are expected to be produced each year, in fact.

Chevrolet is calling this the most powerful and fastest Corvette of all time.

It will have more horsepower than a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 488 GTB or the exotic Ford GT.
