Here Is Your First Look at the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

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

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1-Chevy's latest contender in the battle for performance supremacy-is finally here after months of teases and leaks.

Billed as the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever created, the ZR1 features a supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine that produces 755 hp (563 kW) and 715 lb-ft (968 Nm) of torque. The supercharger is 52% larger in terms of displacement than the one used for the Corvette Z06, which itself is no slouch in the performance department. Until today, the now-dethroned Z06 was the most race-ready 'Vette on offer. To add so much power to the V8, General Motors has also developed its first dual fuel injection system.

All of this is hiding beneath the prominent carbon fiber cover, which the car's hood can not contain. This wild auto has a supercharger so tall that it sticks up through the hood in an old-school shaker-style carbon fiber scoop that we absolutely love. It can be paired to either a seven-speed manual or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. Corvette engineers told Digital Trends that the 10-speed gearbox found on the Camaro "doesn't fit into [the Corvette's] architecture".

Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC) Price Target Raised to $28.50
A number of large investors have recently modified their holdings of BAC. 89 funds opened positions while 257 raised stakes. Susquehanna Intl Gp Limited Liability Partnership has invested 0.3% of its portfolio in Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC).

Even so, you likely won't be able to match the ZR1's overall performance at its price, no matter how hard you try. The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 can be kitted with one of the two available aero packs. It enables the ZR1 to generate up to 70 percent more downforce than the Z06's base aero package. The wicked wing can be tipped up to five degrees with some manual adjustment for drivers who wish to fine tune things at the track. Michelin Pilot Super Sport run-flats are also standard, sized P285/30ZR19 in front and P335/25ZR20 in back.

Every Corvette ZR1 is equipped with 2-piece carbon ceramic brake rotors with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear aluminum calipers.

A new Sebring Orange Design Package will make it virtually impossible to ignore the new Corvette ZR1.

Inside, the Corvette ZR1 comes as standard with leather-trimmed competition sports seats with microfibre inserts, carbon-fibre trim on the steering wheel, performance data recorder and a Bose premium sound system.
