Chevrolet reveals 563kW Corvette ZR1

Chevy fitted the Corvette's 6.2-liter V-8 with a new LT5 supercharger, which gives the ZR1 a power output of 755 horsepower and a 210-mph top speed.

The sports auto will be available in spring of 2018 and will challenge other popular models with new features and colors, Chevrolet said.

An all-new front fascia is created to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13. The former will deliver better top speed while the latter will generate maximum downforce for quicker lap times according to Chevrolet. For the first time ever, the ZR1 will be available with an automatic transmission. Optionally, customers can fit their new 2019 ZR1 with heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, a carbon-fiber adorned steering wheel and Performance Data Recorder, among other things.

Said "High Wing" is available via the ZR1's "Performance Package", along with an angrier front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, plus specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control damper fettling "for greater cornering grip". All wings have a design similar to the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, meaning they are integrated with the chassis for strength and stability. The bonnet features a new carbon-fibre "halo" design specially developed to help cool the big engine. The new Corvette ZR1 continues that trend with an engine that boasts an intercooled supercharger system with 52 percent more displacement than the Z06's LT4 supercharger.

In a first for GM, the engine also gets direct and port fuel injection, as opposed to the Z06's direct injection only. In fact, there's more than enough to shock you: whether or not you opt for the eye-searing Sebring Orange Design Package.

GM says that, on the racetrack, the new ZR1 is the highest-performing Vette in the nameplate's production history. It's the first time the ZR1 has offered two-pedal driving, but don't groan just yet: GM claims the 650-hp Z06 hits 60 miles per hour and runs the quarter-mile in 2.95 and 10.95 seconds, respectively, with the automatic. Pricing was not announced.

"The package also includes orange brake calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, orange seat belts, orange interior stitching, and unique, bronze aluminum interior trim", Chevy said.

The cabin is decked out with leather seats featuring sueded microfibre inserts, with an option to add seat heating and ventilation.

As standard the interior of the vehicle gets heated and cooled Nappa leather seats, a carbon fibre rimmed steering wheel and a Bose premium sound system.
