The King of C7’s

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 got a little publicity ahead of its auto show debut thanks to a “Car and Driver” leaked cover. Apparently released as part of a subscriber newsletter, the image of the cover featuring the Corvette is making the rounds on the internet.

According to reports, the ZR1 will have 750 hp, 680 ft-lbs of torque and mated to a 7-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic. To get this power, the new LT5 has a larger blower (pumping 52 percent more air) and a new fuel delivery system that uses both port and direct injection. More importantly, it looks like the front bodywork features more spaces for cooling, something the Z06 has struggled with.

When it comes to performance, the ZR1 goes from a standstill to 60 mph in under 3 seconds and can cross the 1/4-mile mark in under 11 seconds. Top speed will be more than 210 mph.

The question on everybody’s mind, price! According to our sources, the price will be around $120,000. We’re expecting all the details about the ZR1 when it makes a debut on the 14th at the Dubai motor show.
