“The King is stronger than ever.” These are the words with which Chevrolet has unveiled the new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a car that according to the brand itself will have the highest power , the best behavior in circuit and the most advanced technology in the history of the model.
The power figure of the turbocharged V8 engine of 6.2 liters , called LT5, is 755 HP and has an impressive figure of maximum torque that reaches 969 Nm . These figures make it the most powerful production Chevrolet in history . Its maximum speed catapults the car to more than 337 km / h .
This brutal power is achieved thanks to a more efficient turbo and a dual injection system with a primary direct injection and a supplementary one. Associated with the American V8 engine is a 7-speed manual transmission or another 8- speed automatic with steering wheel paddles, which also makes it the first automatic ZR1 in history .
For those who want to go a step further, the model also includes two new aerodynamic packages with a large rear spoiler that achieves an aerodynamic load on the rear axle of around 430 kilos . With them, the Corvette ZR1 generates 70% more load than the aero pack of the Corvette Z06.
Along with this spoiler, the ZTK Performance package includes a carbon fiber front splitter , summer Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires , specific chassis and a Magnetic Ride Control system for better cornering.
To launch the model, the brand has chosen the orange Sebring package with this color as the protagonist: exterior paint in this shade as well as the brake calipers , seat belts or upholstery seams. It also includes an interior finish in aluminum in bronze .
Finally, the market launch of the new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will take place from the spring of 2018 .
