Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 - 755 hp, 969 Nm of fury

First Look: With the new 2019 Corvette ZR1, Chevy builds the best 'Vette yet Here Is Your First Look at the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

THE CHEVROLET Corvette family has a new patriarch, with the new ZR1 revealed with an almighty supercharged V8 roar. 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 ZR1 will be equipped with a supercharged, 6.2-litre V8-code name LT5-that develops 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque.

The V8 is paired to either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic and sends power to the rear wheels.

Never had any vehicle with a bowtie produced this much power and gone this fast. Obviously based on the Z06's LT4, this version has a supercharger bolted on it that spins 52 percent more displacement than the Z06 engine. To help with the extra boost, Chevy built a dual-fuel-injection system, which utilises direct injection for most of the heavy lifting, but supplements with extra port injectors when needed. It's the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1. According to Chevrolet, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 tips the scales at 3,524 lb.

This is what you want to know: 755 horsepower, 715 lb. -ft. of torque, top speed of over 210 miles per hour, according to General Motors. Hard-core enthusiasts will want to opt for the optional High Wing, which is adjustable and offers maximum downforce on the track for the quickest lap times - about 60 percent more downforce than the Z06 with the available Z07 Performance Package. To that end, Chevrolet added four extra radiators to bring the total number of heat exchangers on the auto to 13, sucking on air from huge front air intakes as well as a vented carbon fibre bonnet - the latter has a cut out for the massive supercharger and intercooler assembly. An all-new front fascia is created to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13. This unit generates a maximum of 755PS/969Nm and has a claimed top speed of 338kmph.

In order to hit these impressive speeds, the auto has been equipped with an all-new front fascia and a "downforce-enhancing front underwing".

In Warsaw 100 thousand people went on the March of nationalists
Many carried the national white-and-red flag as others set off flares and firecrackers, filling the air with red smoke. Poland was the only European Union country to vote against Mr Tusk's reelection as European Union president in March.

All ZR1's also feature a downforce-enhancing front underwing. Both wings are bolted directly to the chassis just like on a C7.R race vehicle, for strength and stability.

The Corvette ZR1 introduced today also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package.

On the other hand, if all you want to do is stand out, then by all means go for the Sebring Orange Design Package, which slathers the hue on the brake callipers, sill and splitter accent stripes, seat belts and interior stitching, on top of the Sebring Orange Tintcoat paint and bronze aluminium interior trim. Upgrades to the ZR1's standard equipment list include simulated suede seat inserts, premium Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, competition sport seats, a carbon fiber-rimmed steering wheel, a Performance Data Recorder, a Bose premium audio system, and more.

Chevy says the 2019 Corvette ZR1 will go on-sale next spring.

It's good to be the King.
