Now it’s official, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was unveiled recently in Dubai, showing off the most potent Corvette ever made. The new vehicle is one of two prototypes with a new benchmark power rating of 755 horsepower and 715 ft/lbs of torque.

These figures have pushed the bar in terms of power ratings, higher than a Dodge Hellcat with the added advantage of immense handling and a sporty feel that may just fill the gap made by the now gone SRT Viper. At the heart of the new Corvette is a LT5 6.2L V-8 engine with a intercooled supercharger system, giving 52% more displacement than a Z06’s LT4 blower. A dual-fuel-injection system helps keep the power numbers up which features a primary direct injection and supplemental port injection. All this is linked to a 7 speed manual or 8 speed automatic paddle shifted transmissions.


With all this power Corvette had to update the airflow and cooling systems, with a new front fascia and for extra radiators, giving a total of 13 heat exchangers. Aero packages help keep the Corvette planted with two available in the form of a low and high wing. the high wing giving up to 60% more downforce than a Z06.

There will also be a Sebring Orange Design Package which features a Sebring Orange Tintcoat paint job and matching brake calipers, splitter accent stripes, seat belts, interior stitching and trim.
