Take a first look at the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with 755 Horse Power.

November 14, 2017

 

Mototrend reports The car goes on sale this spring, and GM expects to make 2,000-3,000 of them at the plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, but production will not be limited.Pricing has not been announced but could easily exceed $130,000. The 2009 ZR1 started at $105,000; a carbon fiber package alone added $15,000. The 2018 base Stingray coupe starts at $56,490 and the Z06 starts at $80,490. Juechter said the ZR1 won’t be double the price of the Stingray.

Many of the suspected details were confirmed. The new coupe continues with GM’s 6.2-liter pushrod small block V-8, but the automaker calls this updated version of the supercharged engine the LT5. It’s confusing because the expectation is LT5 would refer to a switch to a DOHC V-8. The ZR1 sticks with Corvette’s traditional overhead valve, two valves per cylinder, and just when you thought that engine couldn’t squeeze out any more power, GM tells us it’s rated at 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque.

With a top speed of more than 210 miles per hour and for the first time, the ZR1 will be offered with an automatic transmission, though a seven-speed manual is still available. Designers gave the ZR1 a new fascia "to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling," GM said.
