After a ten-year hiatus, General Motors’ Chevrolet is back with a brand-new Corvette ZR1 for the 2019 model year. If you aren’t acquainted with what the ZR1 model entails, it is Chevrolet’s attempt at the greatest performing Corvette of all time, and frankly, it does not disappoint.

In the city of sand dunes adjacent to shores and skyscrapers, Dubai, the beast was unleashed on the Dubai International Motor Show. The godly ZR1 boasts the title of “the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever.”

According to Motor Authority, the engine delivers 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque. The engine also features GM’s first dual-fuel-injection system ever. Not much is known about the ZR1’s top speed, or 0-60 time just yet, because of the car being revealed to world just yesterday.

Predictions place the new entry in the Corvette lineage at a sub 3 second 0-60 time, and a top speed of around 210 mph, considering that the ZR1 has roughly around 1.7 times more horsepower and pound-feet of torque than most recent Corvette Stingray, which clocked in with a maximum speed of 195 mph and an electric 3.8 second 0-60.

All this ludicrous performance in one sleek, precise package does not fare well on your bank account if you are planning to buy one. Industry insiders speculate that this top-of-the-line model will release around spring of the forthcoming year and come in above the $100,000 range when it hits the market.

This cutting-edge Corvette is shaping up to be one of my favorite performance cars in recent history, and I’m eager to find out as much as I can about this marvel of engineering when more information is accessible to the public.
