    Default 2019 755HP 210mph Corvette ZR1



    The ZR1's new pushrod V8 features a 52-percent larger supercharger than the Z06's LT4, as well as GM’s first dual-injection system, to get 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque out of high octane and dense air.

    It looks like it's been taking design cues from the Honda Civic...

    Well at least those idiot engineers at Chevy finally realized you need to have some volume with a S/C. Maybe this thing won't just overheat and go into limp mode after a few laps.

    I see little resemblance to the Civic.

    It looks good - and like every other Corvette out there.

    It was mostly those oversized, overly aggressive front air scoops on both sides for <insert> cooling.

    Everyone seems be be going this route for their performance cars.

    If they actually have the cooling issues under control then I'm excited to see what this car can do. Last rumor I heard is this Vette is on the 200k range though. If that's true then it's still going to remain a pretty low volume car.

    They're claiming 210mph.

    I want to see proof of that!

    needs all the cooling it can get. Thing has 13 radiators/heat exchangers, no? That's 3 more than the Bugatti Lol-ron.

    in this case, it needs all the design it can get for the purpose of cooling. Aero kit also provides ~1000lbs of downforce at whatever/I forget speed.

    Thing is just bonkers...it and the newly announced 400km/h & 0-60 1.9s Tesla Roadster 2 with...infinite power.

    Even if it was 300mph. 200k is still a tough sell for a Chevy.
