Meet 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1

Just how powerful and fast is the 2019 Corvette ZR1? We’re talking a top speed of 212 mph and a small block V8 engine that churns out a jaw-dropping 755 horsepower. But performance isn’t just about speed — the car is fitted with high-performance Brembo brakes, grippy tires and aero features that generate downforce at high speed.

Buyers can take on the $2,995 ZTL Performance Package because, well, they really should. It includes a front splitter with carbon fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and unique chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning. “The ZR1 convertible is a no-compromise supercar,” said Corvette Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter.

Chevrolet says the convertible will still have a top speed ‘over 200mph’, though, which is probably more than enough. And all that unholy supercharger whine and V8 roar – unencumbered by a roof – should make up for any performance deficit.

C7 Corvette fans should also be thrilled, since the leaked documents talk about its engine production spreading to 2021 – keep in mind that we recently found out that production for the 2019MY Corvette (front-engined) is set to kick off in January next year.
