2019 Corvette ZR1
The fastest and most powerful production Corvette ever produced, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is powered by a LT5 supercharged 6.2-liter small block V8 engine producing 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque, combined with either a 7-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed paddle shift automatic — the first time an automatic has been offered in a Corvette ZR1. Two aero packaged are offered with a standard Low Wing that allows the ZR1 to reach a top track speed of over 210 mph, or an adjustable High Wing that generates up to 950 pounds of downforce. The High Wing is part of the ZTK Performance Package which also includes a front splitter with carbon fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, chassis tuning for improved cornering and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for more grip. The 2019 Corvette ZR1 was the pace car for the 2018 Indy 500.
