It's quite simply the fastest, and most powerful road auto Chevrolet has ever built.
The new "King of the Hill" has a 755 hp 6.2-liter V8 sticking out of its hood, thanks to a supercharger that's over 50 percent larger than the one used by the now relatively weak-kneed 650 hp Corvette Z06. That larger displacement supercharger should in theory take care of the Z06's overheating issues, as it won't have to spin as quickly to produce the same forced induction pressure. In fact, the car's new carbon fiber hood is open in the middle in order to clear the hardware. The Z06, for perspective, now is the fastest Corvette you can buy, and produces 650 horsepower. Torque is also up to 715lb ft. The ZR1 weighs 10 pounds more than the Z06, and 171 pounds more than the previous ZR1. Buyers will get to choose between a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic.

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.
Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009. The final edition of this version of the ZR1 rolled off the assembly line in 2013. As you'd expect, the system generates massive amounts of heat, so there are four separate radiators and 13 total heat-exchange units.
Both of the rear wings are tied directly into the car's chassis, as on the C7.R race vehicle, for the best possible strength and stability.
Two aero packages will be available for the all-new ZR1; the standard Low Wing and the two-way adjustable High Wing. The brakes are equally monstrous two-piece carbon ceramic rotors, with fixed six-piston aluminum calipers at the front. Michelin Pilot Super Sport run-flats are also standard, sized P285/30ZR19 in front and P335/25ZR20 in back.
The 2019 Corvette ZR1's aggressive appearance is driven by function, contributing to its distinction as the fastest production Corvette to date.
