GM reveals its 'fastest, most powerful' auto in 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1

GM Unveils Fastest Corvette Ever The fastest most powerful production Corvette ever ??? the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1

Chevrolet has created and unveiled the most powerful and fastest Corvette in the history of the automaker: the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

Among the available exterior colours, Orange Sebring is the new choice.

A big engine under the lengthy hood of a Corvette is nothing new, but the 2019 Corvette ZR1 does do things a little differently - and more impressively - than the high-displacement cars that came before it.

This is what you want to know: 755 horsepower, 715 lb. -ft. of torque, top speed of over 210 miles per hour, according to General Motors. Peak torque kicks in at 4,400 rpm, which is 800 rpm higher than the Z06's 650 lb. -ft. of twist.

The Corvette ZR1 has finally been revealed, and as expected it's a numbers machine.

Newly Found Exoplanet Could Be the Best Bet Yet for Hosting Life
They must find oxygen to figure out if it could be a good host planet for human colonisation or whether life already exists there. They include the ESO's 39-metre Extremely Large Telescope under construction in Chile which is due to begin operating in 2024.

Powering the vehicle is the LT5 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, but it now features a new intercooled supercharger system (52 percent more displacement than the Z06) and GM's first dual-fuel-injection system.

"We have a longstanding relationship with Pratt & Miller [the Corvette race team] and everything comes together in this package", said Peters of the ZR1's aero profile.

The LT5's enormous power is routed through a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic - the first time an auto box has been offered for the ZR1. Basically, it predicts your next gear change and then automatically blips the throttle just before, to match the engine speed.

Unlike with the original Corvette ZR1, you can add lots of creature comforts to the 2019 version, including heated and ventilated front seats, a Bose premium audio system, and the ultimate social media bragging tool, a Performance Data Recorder. How does 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque strike you?

Straight line speed isn't the new ZR1's only forte. However, there are still some figures we don't know. The Z06 can bust through the 0-60-mph barrier in under three seconds, so expect the ZR1 to chop several tenths off that time. With the automatic, you get a set of paddle shifters, but they're mounted to the steering wheel rather than the steering column.

Amazon launches Alexa, Prime Music, and trio of Echo devices in Canada
Alexa is still unavailable in French, which sounds weird as French is one the two official languages of the country. There are a ton of different recipe skills available for Alexa like Allrecipes, which also has an Android app.

Do you want to go fast, or do you want to go around corners?

Debuted in a stunning Sebring Orange paint scheme, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 also features standard leather-trimmed seats with sueded microfiber inserts optional. Do you pick the Low Wing, or the High Wing? In short, while the ZR1 is an fierce track-attacker, you can also get it with a wide array of creature comforts. A "standard rear low wing" will serve up that 210-mph dragstrip speed, while an adjustable "high wing" will enhance downforce and improve racetrack go-around-corners performance.

Still, as you'd hope, that's not to say that the converse isn't true in either case.

Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009.
