Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 - 755 hp, 969 Nm of fury

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

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

Never had any auto with a bowtie produced this much power and gone this fast.

Even so, you likely won't be able to match the ZR1's overall performance at its price, no matter how hard you try. According to Chevrolet, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 tips the scales at 3,524 lb.

Two different aerodynamic styling packages will be available and the standard "Low Wing" variant is created to deliver the highest top speed.

The ZR1's LT5 6.2L V-8 engine advances Corvette's supercharging legacy, which began with the 2009 sixth-generation ZR1 and continued with the 2015 seventh-generation Z06. GM's first dual-fuel-injection system, which employs primary direct injection and supplemental port injection, helps the LT5 achieve its record output.

The V8 is paired to either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic and sends power to the rear wheels.

In the meantime, the new ZR1 is unlikely to be converted to right-hand drive and offered in Australia.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1's aggressive appearance is driven by function, contributing to its distinction as the fastest production Corvette to date. The model also features a unique carbon-fiber "halo" hood and four new radiators. With a top speed quoted at "over 210 mph", they're not wrong. This unit generates a maximum of 755PS/969Nm and has a claimed top speed of 338kmph. The standard Low Wing is the one that has the least drag and enables the ZR1 to hit its claimed top speed of over 335 km/h; even so, the auto generates up to 70% extra downforce compared to a stock Z06 in this form. All models also feature a Chevrolet-first, downforce-enhancing front underwing.

FX Ends Its Relationship With Louis CK
On Friday morning, Louis confirmed that the accusations were true and he admitted that he "abused power" that he had over women. But in interviews, Adlon said she saw it differently, and thought that her character went along with the kiss.

The High Wing is part of the ZTK Performance Package, which also throws in a giant front splitter with carbon fibre end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and specific tuning for the chassis and Magnetic Ride Control dampers, delivering greater cornering grip. Both wings are connected directly to the chassis - just like C7.R racecar - for extra strength and stability.

In 2015 American publication vehicle and Driver published spy photos of a Holden Commodore Ute that it claimed was being used as a test mule for the new mid-engine Corvette.

Speaking of options, Chevrolet will offer a Sebring Orange Design Package that includes a Sebring Orange exterior with orange brake calipers and orange accents.

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

Unlike with the original Corvette ZR1, you can add lots of creature comforts to the 2019 version, including heated and ventilated front seats, a Bose premium audio system, and the ultimate social media bragging tool, a Performance Data Recorder.

The new Corvette ZR1 was revealed in Dubai and wouldn't look out of place on the Le Mans starting grid thanks to its huge racing-style rear wing.

It's good to be the King.
