Chevrolet Debuts 755-Horsepower Corvette ZR1 In Flashy 'Sebring Orange'

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

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 isn't just the most powerful Corvette yet, but the most powerful General Motors vehicle ever made. As such, it features 755 horsepower and 715 pounds per feet of torque.

To please both worlds, the company with the bowtie emblem will sell the 2018 Corvette ZR1 with a choice between a seven-speed manual (with active rev match) and an eight-speed automatic transmission. It's powered by a supercharged V8 that pushes out more than 760 PS with almost 970 Nm of torque and also comes with a unique aerokit that keeps it firmly on the ground. The Low Wing comes as standard, and Chevrolet says it's the design you want if top speed is your primary goal. Because of the American supercar's ability to hit such an insane speed, Chevrolet engineers have created two new aero packages to help with downforce. The one you see here is the ZTK Performance Pack, or "High Wing", which comes with an imposing rear spoiler, and produces what Chev claims is 60 percent more downforce than the Z06's Z07 performance pack.

As an added bonus, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 can be specified with the optional Sebring Orange Design Package. The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will have a 755-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged engine and a top speed, according to GM, of 210 miles an hour. We're still waiting for final details but considering what Chevy has done with the 2019 ZR1, the numbers are likely to be awe-inspiring. Summed up, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is a beast, and it will be available to purchase next spring. Chevy says the new Vette sets a performance benchmark with its unparalleled track presence, powerful engine, and other advanced technologies. Both packages feature a front underwing - a first for a General Motors auto - that increases downforce.

Drivers will also find unique orange stitching, bronze aluminum trim, and leather seats with suede microfiber inserts; optional are the heated and vented Napa leather seats. The kit also includes special chassis tuning and Magnetic Ride Control, along with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer tires. There's also a Bose premium sound system available, along with a carbon fibre-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats and a Performance Data Recorder for more sportive types. Pricing has not yet been announced but expect a six-digit figure.
