Chevy fitted the Corvette's 6.2-liter V-8 with a new LT5 supercharger, which gives the ZR1 a power output of 755 horsepower and a 210-mph top speed. This is the first automatic transmission ever offered on the ZR1, but Chevrolet still recommends the manual transmission for track driving.
With great power comes great speed.
Because of the aero, top speed takes a whack, but Chevrolet claims the new ZR1 will still cruise its way past 338km/h (210mph). Despite featuring the base aero settings, the Low Wing-enabled Corvette ZR1 still generates up to 70 percent more downforce than the aforementioned Z06.
Chevrolet is kicking off the week by crowning a new king, one that is now "stronger than ever", in the 2019 Corvette ZR1. The ZR1's LT5 6.2L supercharged V8 is the most powerful production Chevy engine yet, complete with 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft. of torque. Indeed, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 included an engine with 650 horsepower.

Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 3 revealed - TMNT join the fight
Atom is set to launch this December 12, with the Enchantress set for release in January, and the Ninja crew in February. Going by the video, the turtles will be fighting as a team, which means all four will be controlled as one.
GM says that, on the racetrack, the new ZR1 is the highest-performing Vette in the nameplate's production history.
Both versions of the ZR1 come with a new front underwing, which aims to bring more stability and downforce to the vehicle.
Not enough? Opt for the High Wing, a towering two-way adjustable unit that helps generate around 60% more downforce compared to the Z06 with the already pretty serious Z07 Performance Package.
"I've never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there's never been one like this before", says Reuss. Aside from giving it a very noticeable Sebring Orange hue, it also paints the brake calipers, rocker and splitter accents, seat belts and interior contrast stitching with the brightly-colored hue. All wings have a design similar to the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, meaning they are integrated with the chassis for strength and stability. Not to forget the the suspension, which has been tuned specifically for the package, and pairs with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for added grip. Other add-ons available to buyers include a carbon-fibre-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, a performance data recorder and a Bose premium audio system. The price of the auto was not yet announced, but it will likely be a six-figure price, even before dealers add markup.
