Chevrolet unveils latest Corvette ZR1 with a massive 6.2-liter V8 engine

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1's LT5 V-8 engine leaked

This comes thanks to a new engine, the LT5, which was built just for the Zr1 and will likely remain exclusive to it.

The new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be the most powerful Corvette ever made with top speeds of 210 miles per hour and a 755 horsepower engine.

"I've never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there's never been one like this before".

There will be no mistaking a ZR1 from the other high performance Corvette variant.

Behind those gaping air intakes and beneath that carbon fiber hood beats the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1's 755-horsepower heart. The ZR1 also comes equipped with Chevy's first dusl fuel direct injection system with supplemental port injection.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 features a standard 7-speed manual gearbox while it also has, as an option, an 8-speed automatic gear. It's the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1.

West Indies to tour Pakistan in March next year
The reciprocal series in United States of America in 2018 will be a tri-series, with the third participant yet to be finalized. The series will comprise three T20 matches on March 29, 31, and April 1 and all the matches will be played in Lahore.

Versus the single-bumper opening on lesser Corvettes (even the Z06), the ZR1 gets three massive openings plus what appears to be a fourth one tucked above the road-hugging splitter.

If you're after the highest top speed possible, you will have to go with the Low Wing configuration as that will enable the ZR1 reach more than 210mph.

"As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1's design supports its capability in every way", said Exterior Design manager Kirk Bennion. The standard auto comes with a low rear wing that allows the vehicle to reach its huge top speed and produces 70 percent more downforce than the Z06's body. With or without the ZTK there's a first-ever front underwing, as well.

Said "High Wing" is available via the ZR1's "Performance Package", along with an angrier front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, plus specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control damper fettling "for greater cornering grip".

If lairy bits of aero and a supercharger assembly appearing to punch through the bonnet isn't enough for you in terms of visual aggression, you might be interested in the Sebring Orange Design Package.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 is shown here in two color, including Sebring Orange, a package featuring an orange theme throughout. The nose of the ZR1, meanwhile, has been heavily redesigned to provide additional airflow for the engine and cooling systems. The driver-focused, well-appointed cockpit includes standard leather-trimmed seats, with sueded microfiber inserts offered.
