Vehicle Preview: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 leaked on magazine cover

Further, the ZR1 elevates Corvette's track capability with two wind tunnel-honed aerodynamics packages, including an available High Wing that provides an estimated 950 pounds of downforce. The resulting outputs - 755 hp at 6,300 rpm and 715 pounds-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm - are the most in the Corvette's production history, GM says.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back", he added.

When it comes to the Corvette, sometimes you get what you want, not what you need.

Chevy hasn't revealed how quick it is, but says the ZR1 will break the 210 miles per hour barrier, which could put it within range of the $450,000 2016 miles per hour Ford GT. Pricing has not yet been announced but expect a six-digit figure. This marks the first time an automatic has been offered on the coveted ZR1.

The High Wing is part of the ZTK Performance Package, which also throws in a giant front splitter with carbon fibre end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and specific tuning for the chassis and Magnetic Ride Control dampers, delivering greater cornering grip. The new ZR1 has four additional radiators to keep it from getting hot under the collar, giving it a total of 13.

The sports auto will be available in spring of 2018 and will challenge other popular models with new features and colors, Chevrolet said.

All the sectoral indices led by metal, auto and oil & gas were trading in the negative terrain, falling by up to 0.92 per cent. However, gains in software exporters such as Infosys, TCS and Wipro on strengthening dollar cushioned the fall.

Chevrolet is kicking off the week by crowning a new king, one that is now "stronger than ever", in the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

The carbon-fiber hood has a raised center with openings to clear enough room for the engine.

Compared to the Z06, the ZR1 also arrives with a raft of aerodynamic improvements, with buyers offered the choice of two aero packages: standard Low Wing and optional two-way-adjustable High Wing. The most notable changes can be seen on the exterior, as the front of the vehicle sports larger inlets for added cooling while the rear has the option of a high rise spoiler for a substantial increase in downforce.

Both of the ZR1's wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1's front end is created to channel maximum air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling.

Inside, the ZR1 gets leather-trimmed bucket seats, a performance data recorder and a Bose sound system as standard.
