  • 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1's LT5 V-8 engine leaked

At 755 hp and with a top speed of 755, the 2019 ZR1 is the fastest, most powerful Corvette ever.

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). As a powertrain mechanic with seven gears or automatic eight. It's powered by a supercharged V8 that pushes out more than 760 PS with almost 970 Nm of torque and also comes with a unique aerokit that keeps it firmly on the ground.

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.

MSRP has not been announced for the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, but it is expected to arrive in dealerships this spring.

Our favorite car-review YouTuber, Doug DeMuro, stopped by the Dubai Auto Show this weekend and gave us a closer look at the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, and it's a monster.

Chevrolet has spent a lot of time making sure the ZR1 stays cool when driven hard (you might remember the Z06 having some rather well-publicised heat soak issues).

Versus the single-bumper opening on lesser Corvettes (even the Z06), the ZR1 gets three massive openings plus what appears to be a fourth one tucked above the road-hugging splitter. Chevy says the new Vette sets a performance benchmark with its unparalleled track presence, powerful engine, and other advanced technologies. 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.

Chevrolet will also offer the ZR1 supercar in a Sebring Orange Design package, which will have a Sebring Orange exterior color with orange brake calipers, seat belts, stitching, and more. That ZTK package includes a unique front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high performance tires and specific Magnetic Ride Control tuning for the best possible track times.

Under the hood lives the supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The high wing generates 60-percent more downforce than the optional Z07 Performance Package on the Corvette Z06. All wings have a design similar to the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, meaning they are integrated with the chassis for strength and stability. Buyers can also added a carbon fiber trimmed steering wheel, the competition sport seats, the Performance Data Recorder (that I am surprised is not standard) and a Bose premium sound system.
