2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Rear Three Quarter High Wing

Chevrolet's 2019 Corvette ZR1, which was to debut Sunday, Nov. 12, at the Dubai International Motor Show, features an exclusive 6.2-liter supercharged LT5 engine capable of 755 hp and 715 pound-feet of torque and a top speed of more than 210 miles per hour - making it the fastest production Corvette ever.

The 2019 ZR1 will go on sale from June 2018 with the base price to be around $130,000 (Rs 84.9 lakh, excluding import duty and other costs). GM says the new ZR1 has four new radiators and 13 heat exchangers in total.

The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is here, and it's really not a auto you'd want to get on the wrong side of. Why?

Chevy will offer the ZR1 with a seven-speed manual transmission, and for the first-time-ever, an eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission. This upgrade installed racing-grade suspension, braking, and cooling components, along with a heavy-duty 4-speed manual transmission.

"I've never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there's never been one like this before", Mark Reuss, GM's executive vice president of product development, purchasing and supply chain, said in the release. Both feature substantial ground-works including a large front splitter and new under-mounted front wing, with the "low-wing" package generating 70 per cent more downforce than the standard Z06.

Video of a McDonald's melee is going viral on social media, and the entire freakish incident happened right here in Indianapolis. The woman who shot the video, Monique McNeely, said she has been getting calls from as far away as New Zealand about the story.

The High Wing is part of the ZTK Performance Package, which also throws in a giant front splitter with carbon fibre end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and specific tuning for the chassis and Magnetic Ride Control dampers, delivering greater cornering grip. The supercar also comes equipped with Chevy's first dual fuel direct injection system with supplemental port injection. What's even cooler is that the whole thing is connected to a patent-pending active exhaust, which should give you a wider range of nasty noises, promising Motörhead-levels of decibels in race mode. Pricing has not yet been announced but expect a six-digit figure. Meanwhile, the new Sebring Orange Design Package is all about making yourself noticed, inside and out.

The C7 generation Corvette has reached its peak, and it's called the ZR1.

The cabin is decked out with leather seats featuring sueded microfibre inserts, with an option to add seat heating and ventilation. While this doesn't change the supercar's mechanical setup, it does bring the Sebring Orange body paint matched with orange brake calipers, seat belts, stitching and exterior bits, plus a bronze-aluminum interior trim.

755 horsepower is plenty to get a 3,524 pound coupe going very, very quickly in a straight line, and the 2019 Corvette ZR1 doesn't disappoint. Other add-ons available to buyers include a carbon-fibre-rimmed steering wheel, competition sport seats, a performance data recorder and a Bose premium audio system.
