After months of waiting, the Corvette ZR1 2019 was officially launched Monday, November 13, 2017 at the Dubai Motor Show.
The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is renowned and becomes the most powerful road car in the history of the brand. The 2019 ZR1 will have a power of 765 hp, a peak torque of 715 lb-ft (969 Nm) at 4,400rpm and will be able to reach 210 miles per hour, nearly 340 km/h. "There has never been a Corvette like this" says Mark Reuss, executive vice president.
The sport car is driven by the 6.2 liter LT5 supercharged V8 engine with 755 hp and 969 Nm of maximum torque combined with the seven-speed manual transmission or the first automatic transmission offered on a ZR1. Not only is the dual-injection direct drive contributed to increased performance, but also an aesthetic kit designed to improve the car's aerodynamics.
The aggressive and sporty appearance features a front bumper with large air vents, to cool the 13 car radiators, the carbon rear wing secured directly to the chassis and lateral aerodynamic appendages, to improve driveability in the curve. On request, the Sebring Orange Design Package is available to enhance Sebring Orange color, with brake calipers, aerodynamic details, seat belts, and orange stitching.
