Chevy Corvette ZR1 debuts with 755 horsepower

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

What's more, the model comes with two aerodynamic packages, fine-tuned in wind-tunnel testing; one includes a standard rear Low Wing that allows the new ZR1 to hit a top speed of over 210 miles per hour (338 km/h), the other an adjustable High Wing which generates around 950 pounds of downforce for the quickest lap times.

The cast aluminium block and heads some how withstand huge forces, forces of which translate to an SAE-certified 563kW (755hp) and 969Nm (715 lb-ft). The 6.2L V8 can be mated to either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

American muscle comes in many shapes and forms, but none are as savage as this - the new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

Armed with an exclusive LT5 supercharged engine, Chevrolet blissfully proclaims its newest model Corvette takes the brand's legacy to a new level with the highest power, greatest track performance, and most advanced technology in its production history, and that is saying a lot.

On Sunday in Dubai, Chevy pulled the cover off the newest, baddest 'Vette: the ZR1. An optional two-way adjustable high wing is estimated to add 431 kg of downforce for increased high-speed stability and faster track lap times.

Ivory Coast vs Morocco
Tunisia and Morocco have completed the roster of teams that would represent Africa at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup . DR Congo were the only team still with a chance to catch Tunisia , but they fell short despite a late 3-1 win over Guinea .

Chevrolet is calling this the most powerful and fastest Corvette of all time.

Okay, so the Corvette ZR1 isn't in that territory. In addition to its prodigious output, the ZR1 also offers two different aerodynamic packages including a high wing variant that generates 950 pounds of downforce.

The exquisite Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has incredible features, really defining it as a supercar.

To add the "High Wing" aero kit, customers must opt for the ZTK Performance Package that includes Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer tires, specially tuned magnetic ride-control and a front splitter with carbon fiber end plates. The price of the vehicle was not yet announced, but it will likely be a six-figure price, even before dealers add markup. Both wings are bolted directly to the chassis just like on a C7.R race auto, for strength and stability.

A Sebring Orange Design Package is available, including bright "arrest-me-now" exterior paint combined with matching interior stitching and seat belts, as well as bronze aluminum interior trim. Other available features include competition sport seats, a performance data recorder, Bose premium audio system and a carbon fiber rimmed sport steering wheel.
