Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is in Dubai with 755 hp

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

As the fourth ZR1 in Corvette history, the 2019 version is equipped with a direct- and port-injected, supercharged, 6.2-liter V8 engine, appropriately named the LT5. However, those who prefer paddle-shifting can now spec an eight-speed automatic transmission instead. The standard auto comes with a low rear wing that allows the vehicle to reach its huge top speed and produces 70 percent more downforce than the Z06's body.

The Corvette ZR1 will go on sale next year but Chevrolet isn't revealing the all important number on the price just yet.

With a top speed of more than 210 miles per hour, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 gets 755 horsepower from its 6.2-liter, 8-cylinder supercharged, dual-injected engine.

Inside, Motor Trend says, the new ZR1 features leather seats with "suede-like microfibre" highlights, along with "an option to make them heated and cooled". The front fascia's design is more than cosmetic; it's created to channel air to four new radiators, bringing the total number of heat exchangers to 13 on the vehicle.

In the Sunday show 60 Minutes , which was broadcast on Friday, Aly Raisman said that he had undergone the first "treatment" of Dr. More and more women have recently spoken out against him, including another Olympic gymnastics star, McKayla Maroney .

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 comes as close as ever to giving foreign supercar brands like Aston Martin, Ferrari and Lamborghini a real run for the money - and, indeed, at $130,000, this 755 horsepower King Kong Corvette is a veritable bargain. Additional front aero will jam the ZR1 even harder into the track.

A low wing package decreases downforce in comparison, but it's with this package that the claimed 210mph top speed can be achieved. And two rear wing styles are available, each tied directly to the car's chassis as in the Corvette C7.R racing auto.

Chevrolet has not yet announced acceleration figures for the 2019 ZR1 yet. Both of the new ZR1's wing setups are attached directly to the chassis, similar to the construction on the Corvette Racing C7.R. If you opt for the ZTK Performance Package, you also get a front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer-only tires, and specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for greater cornering grip.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 is shown here in two color, including Sebring Orange, a package featuring an orange theme throughout. Other add-ons available to buyers include a carbon-fibre-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, a performance data recorder and a Bose premium audio system.
