  • First Look: With the new 2019 Corvette ZR1, Chevy builds the best 'Vette yet

With a supercharged LT5 6.2L V8 the Corvette ZR1 has an insane 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft. of torque. There's also direct injection and port injection for the first time, with traditional overhead valve push-rod cam gear, with two valves per cylinder. Back in your driveway, it's also the most extreme-looking: An optional massive rear spoiler and wraparound ground effects generate track-smacking downforce, while multiple gaping bumper portals replace the single unit on other Corvettes.

But the ZR1 isn't just about grunt, the Chevrolet engineers have tuned every element of the vehicle for maximum performance.

After months of teases and anticipation, Chevrolet finally revealed the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 supercar on Sunday, Nov. 12 in Dubai.

Going into Sunday, Rudolph has just 271 receiving yards and three touchdowns but will have a solid game. Keenum then threw back-to-back bad interceptions that allowed Washington to stay in the game.

Chevy hasn't revealed how quick it is, but says the ZR1 will break the 210 miles per hour barrier, which could put it within range of the $450,000 2016 miles per hour Ford GT. Pricing has not been announced, though expect it to be in the range of $120,000, with various options and packages pushing it to $130,000 and beyond. It's the first time in the ZR1's prolific existence that it has been made available with an automatic gearbox. The two-way adjustable high wing is part of a new ZTK performance package that also includes a front splitter with carbon fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer-only tires and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for increased grip.

The Corvette is newly redesigned inside and out, with better aerodynamics and more radiators to prevent overheating as well as a roomier cockpit, a carbon fiber steering wheel, and in some models, heated seats and a Bose audio system.

Chevrolet will start selling the 2019 Corvette ZR1 in Spring 2018. It's also available with a seven-speed manual, or if you want to be less cool, an eight-speed automatic.

The engine sits underneath what Chevrolet calls a "halo hood" which features a carbon fibre two-piece bonnet bulge. It will hold 755 horsepower under its hood, having a top speed of more than 210mph.

Both of the ZR1's wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability. The Corvette ZR1 will be offered in a new Sebring Orange Design Package, with a special exterior color and matching orange brake calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, and, inside, matching seat belts and interior stitching.

The new design package complements the Corvette ZR1's tradition of offering maximum performance with refinement and design distinction.
