Chevrolet has brought a legend back to claim the sports car throne. That's right, the Corvette nameplate is having another generation – and its more aggressive than ever. The American carmaker introduced the 2019 Corvette ZR1, the fastest Corvette production car in history.
By saying more aggressive, we mean huge intakes on the front bumper, a special carbon fiber "halo" hood, stanchion-mounted wings, and a downforce-enhancing front underwing. Aside from these, the ZR1 will also be coming with the new Sebring Orange Design Package. The package includes orange brake-painted calipers, rocker, and splitter accent stripes.
Inside, the 2019 Corvette gets orange seat belts and interior stitching, as well as an exclusive bronze aluminum trim. These are accentuated by leather-trimmed seats with suede microfiber inserts. More features include carbon fiber steering wheel, sports seats, Performance Data Recorder, Bose audio system, among others.
No matter how aggressive the Corvette has become, the real deal is its power. Powered by a 6.2L V8 supercharged engine, which features a new intercooled supercharger system, the Corvette delivers 755 hp and 969 Nm of torque. This enables the American-bred sports car to achieve a 338 km/h top speed, with the help of its 7-speed manual or 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.
