Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: The Beast is Back

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: The Beast is Back

That's all from an LT5 6.2 litre direct-injected V8 - still fitted with pushrods, mind you - force-fed by an intercooled supercharger 52% larger than the one in the Z06. The vehicle was discontinued after 1995, production totaling fewer than 7,000 units. Equipped with a hand-built, supercharged 6.2-liter V8, the third installment of the ZR1 made 638-hp, boasted a top speed of 205 miles per hour, and included lots of carbon fiber body work, a magnesium front cradle, a unique rear axle design, carbon ceramic brakes, a magnetic ride control suspension, a 6-speed manual gearbox with a twin-disc clutch, and a launch control system to maximize acceleration. Top speed of the ZR1 is over 210 miles per hour. "Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back".

The Corvette ZR1's exclusive LT5 supercharged engine, which is rated at an SAE-certified 755 horsepower (563 kW) and 715 lb-ft of torque (969 Nm), is establishing a new benchmark in performance. All that is sent to the fat rear tyres via a seven-speed manual transmission, but for the first time on a ZR1 buyers also have the option of an eight-speed automatic.

A rear low wing is standard (this one helps achieve the highest top speed) while a High Wing (two-way adjustable) can be specified for those who are after high downforce on the track. This unit generates a maximum of 755PS/969Nm and has a claimed top speed of 338kmph.

The ZTK Performance Package will include a High Wing that is said to increase downforce by an additional 950 pounds (431 kilograms).

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1-Chevy's latest contender in the battle for performance supremacy-is finally here after months of teases and leaks.

Hidden underneath the chiseled front end is a new underwing that creates downforce to keep the ZR1 stuck to the road.

Nuclear deal 'not negotiable': Iran tells France
Iran says its missile programme is defensive and it has no plans to build nuclear-capable missiles. He raised the prospect of possible sanctions with regard to those activities.

In order to hit these impressive speeds, the auto has been equipped with an all-new front fascia and a "downforce-enhancing front underwing".

Both of the ZR1's wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability.

The vehicle will also be available with a Sebring Orange Design Package.

Unlike with the original Corvette ZR1, you can add lots of creature comforts to the 2019 version, including heated and ventilated front seats, a Bose premium audio system, and the ultimate social media bragging tool, a Performance Data Recorder.

.

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. The driver-focused, well-appointed cockpit includes standard leather-trimmed seats, with sueded microfiber inserts offered. 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.

It's good to be the King.
