755PS/969Nm making 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is here!

Both aero packages also include a front underwing.

In a first for GM, the engine also gets direct and port fuel injection, as opposed to the Z06's direct injection only.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back", he added.

This will be the fourth ZR1 in the history of Corvette cars.

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

GM revealed the auto at a studio sound stage on Sunday, and it will be featured at the Dubai Motor Show on Tuesday where it will be shown with many other six- and seven-figure luxury vehicles. This is the first automatic transmission ever offered on the ZR1, but Chevrolet still recommends the manual transmission for track driving.

Along with aero bits, the ZTK Performance Pack brings Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, and a special chassis and suspension tune.

AT&T ready to fight United States on Time Warner deal: CEO
AT&T has argued against selling off either company's assets, as it believes this would undercut the rationale for the tie-up. However, according to the U.S. news site Wired, it's not clear whether the DoJ could successfully block the merger.

Chevrolet says the 2019 Corvette ZR1 goes on sale in spring 2018, with pricing to be announced closer to that time.

That bigger supercharger meant a taller engine altogether, one that wouldn't clear the hood; so, while the center carbon-fibre section looks like one piece, it's actually separate, with the intercooler on top poking through, in a sort of retro "shaker hood" style. What's more, the model comes with two aerodynamic packages, fine-tuned in wind-tunnel testing; one includes a standard rear Low Wing that allows the new ZR1 to hit a top speed of over 210 miles per hour (338 km/h), the other an adjustable High Wing which generates around 950 pounds of downforce for the quickest lap times.

The engine is paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission, with an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.

Chevrolet has spent a lot of time making sure the ZR1 stays cool when driven hard (you might remember the Z06 having some rather well-publicised heat soak issues).

Based on the seventh-generation Corvette coupe, the ZR1 gets a reworked front bumper with larger air inlets and a small carbon fibre winglets that help generate more grip at higher speeds. The nose of the ZR1, meanwhile, has been heavily redesigned to provide additional airflow for the engine and cooling systems.

Speaking of the interior, the ZR1 comes as standard with leather-trimmed seats, and can be specified with sueded microfibre inserts or even Napa leather upholstery together with heating with ventilation.

It's good to be the King.
