  • 755-Horsepower 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 is the Fastest, Most Powerful Vette Ever

Under the bonnet, the 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine, codenamed LT5, has a supercharger that's 52% larger than that in the Corvette ZO6 and is more efficient.

Chevy estimates the output of the ZR1 to be 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque.

Rubber for the angriest 'Vette yet comes in at 285/30R19 up front, while 335/25R20 treads put the power down at the rear. Chevy says the top speed of the ZR1 is over 210 miles per hour.

Chevrolet says the 2019 Corvette ZR1 goes on sale in spring 2018, with pricing to be announced closer to that time.

This past weekend in Dubai, the most powerful Corvette ever made its debut in the form of the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1.

And if you are a fan of the Corvette's exhaust note, the ZR1 gets an all-new system which emits an even more louder note than the Z06. It will hold 755 horsepower under its hood, having a top speed of more than 210mph.

The ZR1 is available with either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox, equipped with paddle shifters, marking the first time an automatic has been offered in the ZR1. The 2019 ZR1 also sports a new front fascia created to channel towards cooling the propulsion system and drivetrain, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13.

If you thought the Corvette Z06 was a lot of auto, get ready to have your world rearranged.

This is actually the faster of the two, adding 70 per cent more downforce than the standard ZO6 Corvette.

Both aero packages also include a front underwing.

On the ZR1's backside sits a less-than-subtle rear wing, which helps it stick to the road when the taps are open on its engine.

Moreover, the pack containing the high wing also brings a front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and Magnetic Ride Control to the table.

Chevrolet will be offering the new model in a special Sebring Orange Design Package, which includes the vibrant Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior, orange brakes, orange seat belts and stitching, and other orange and bronze highlights. Heated and vented Napa leather-trimmed seating is also available, as well as a carbon fiber-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, Performance Data Recorder, Bose premium audio system and more. The price is yet to be announced, but if you must ask, you probably can not afford it. Count on spending six figures, though, and that's before dealers add markup.
