Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: Most Powerful 'Vette Ever Produced

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Rear Three Quarter High Wing

This one, however, is the ZR1, the brand's most powerful ever. The result is the production of 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. It's the first time in the ZR1's prolific existence that it has been made available with an automatic gearbox.

Visually the ZR1 is the most aggressive of its breed, with intimidating new bumpers which feature large carbon-fibre aero. The Z06, for perspective, now is the fastest Corvette you can buy, and produces 650 horsepower. The 2018 Corvette Z06 starts at $81,585 and the previous 2009 ZR1 started at $105,000. It's also available with a seven-speed manual, or if you want to be less cool, an eight-speed automatic.

Before we get stuck into the knitty gritty of the new 'Vette, lets lay out the core figures that make this beast so impressive. "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". This upgrade installed racing-grade suspension, braking, and cooling components, along with a heavy-duty 4-speed manual transmission.

If you thought the Corvette Z06 was a lot of vehicle, get ready to have your world rearranged. Y'know, stuff like air conditioning and power windows. Gone are the round tail lights and returned the not-so-worthy Stingray name has. The sticker price was nearly $60,000, a fortune then.and now.

Ever since I drove the C7 Chevrolet Corvette, it solidified something for me.

Chevrolet has lifted the lid on its all-new ZR1, a name associated with a super muscle auto for more than 48 years. The final edition of this version of the ZR1 rolled off the assembly line in 2013. GM says the new ZR1 has four new radiators and 13 heat exchangers in total. One thing to note about the rear wing is that, while it offers a pretty sleek touch, and added performance benefits, it prevents drivers from being able to easily access the trunk. At the rear the standard ZR1 comes with a low set wing that provides 70 per cent more downforce than the Corvette Z06's aerodynamic package.

Hidden underneath the chiseled front end is a new underwing that creates downforce to keep the ZR1 stuck to the road. You also get special chassis tuning, Magnetic Ride Control and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber. Chevy didn't announce pricing, but it will probably come in at just over $100,000, continuing Corvette's pattern of offering bonkers performance for a relative song.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back".
