Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is GM's most powerful auto ever

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is GM's most powerful auto ever

He also says that he anticipates the auto to hit 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) in as little as 2.7 seconds, but we'll know more once Chevy shares some more official figures.

A big engine under the lengthy hood of a Corvette is nothing new, but the 2019 Corvette ZR1 does do things a little differently - and more impressively - than the high-displacement cars that came before it.

Chevy unveiled the 2019 Corvette ZR1 on Monday at the Dubai International Motor Show, sporting a not so subtle Sebring Orange paint job - which garnered almost as much attention as the car's horsepower figure. For the first time ever, the ZR1 will be available with an automatic transmission.

Apparently, there is a fix that might bring the microphone back to work. "Mine stopped working again. It strangely works when recording video and when using the speakers during calls.

The new "King of the Hill" has a 755 hp 6.2-liter V8 sticking out of its hood, thanks to a supercharger that's over 50 percent larger than the one used by the now relatively weak-kneed 650 hp Corvette Z06. 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.

In 1990, the Corvette ZR-1 returned to the lineup with a Lotus-engineered and Mercury Marine-built, 32-valve, aluminum-block, 5.7-liter V8 dubbed the LT5. That adds up to a smoother change when you release the clutch.

For example, the new ZR1 has a redesigned front end with huge air intakes to feed four new radiators, which brings the total heat exchanger count to 13, according to Chevrolet.

Twitter puts verification on hold after Charlottesville organizer gets blue check

Nineteen-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels wear P285/30ZR19 front and P335/25ZR20 rear tires, with Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber.

Unlike the previous C6 ZR1, where the supercharger assembly was open for the world to see under a clear polycarbonate piece, the new, carbon fiber "halo" hood is now a complex setup with vents and a shaker piece that caps the Eaton blower and intercooler. It comes with orange calipers to bind to the Brembo carbon ceramic brakes (you can get your calipers in multiple colors on other ZR1s), orange rocker and splitter accents, and orange and bronze interior accents. Both of the wing options are tied into the chassis, which is how it is in the Corvette Racing C7.R version, ass well. Other available features include competition sport seats, a performance data recorder, Bose premium audio system and a carbon fiber rimmed sport steering wheel. Additional front aero will jam the ZR1 even harder into the track.

Welcome to the latest Corvette from Chevrolet wearing the racy ZR1 badge. In this respect, then, the vehicle remains the bargain that the Corvette has always been, while at the same time reasserting itself as America's definitive sports car*.
