Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is in Dubai with 755 hp

Chevrolet has created and unveiled the most powerful and fastest Corvette in the history of the automaker: the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

Powered by a supercharged LT5 6.2-litre V8 that's also good for 715 lb-ft of torque, the ZR1 is capable of a claimed top speed of 338 km/h (210 mph)-the only performance metric Chevrolet has revealed about the vehicle.

The cast aluminium block and heads some how withstand huge forces, forces of which translate to an SAE-certified 563kW (755hp) and 969Nm (715 lb-ft). The standard 2019 ZR1 will come with a seven-speed manual, keeping the purists happy in the process. Chevrolet didn't go into specifics but confirmed the model has a top speed in excess of 210 miles per hour (337 km/h).

A low stanchion-mounted rear wing is standard equipment, paired with a new front underwing to supply a 70-percent increase in downforce compared to a base Z06.

Set to go on sale next spring, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 makes a big leap from the current top-performing version of the C7 line, the 650 hp Z06. An American auto manufacturer has travelled all the way to Dubai to showcase their latest offering, a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

The company operates "in a highly competitive and dynamic environment", Patrick Lenihan said in an emailed statement. We've reached out to Google with a request for comment and will update when we hear back.

Chevy has still not announced any 0 to 100kmph acceleration timings for the 2019 ZR1 yet. However, Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter promises the ZR1's price won't be double that of a Stingray, which starts at $56,590.

And if you're still not sure your new Vette will stand out enough, "The Corvette ZR1 introduced today also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package", Chevy noted. In addition to its prodigious output, the ZR1 also offers two different aerodynamic packages including a high wing variant that generates 950 pounds of downforce. That's all from an LT5 6.2 litre direct-injected V8 - still fitted with pushrods, mind you - force-fed by an intercooled supercharger 52% larger than the one in the Z06.

Drivers will also find unique orange stitching, bronze aluminum trim, and leather seats with suede microfiber inserts; optional are the heated and vented Napa leather seats.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 is shown here in two color, including Sebring Orange, a package featuring an orange theme throughout. This package also includes a front splitter with carbon fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer performance tires, revised chassis tuning, and reworked Magnetic Ride Control suspension calibration. It will hold 755 horsepower under its hood, having a top speed of more than 210mph.
