  • First Look: With the new 2019 Corvette ZR1, Chevy builds the best 'Vette yet

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 takes one look at the Corvette Z06 and decides "oh no, 650 horsepower just isn't enough", then goes about redesigning the powertrain, aerodynamics, cooling, and more to deliver a lightning strike of a auto.

Powered by an LT5 supercharged V8, the ZR1 will produce a staggering 755 horsepower and 715 lb. -ft. of torque. However, those who prefer paddle-shifting can now spec an eight-speed automatic transmission instead.

With all the power comes issues of cooling, something previous Corvettes have struggled with.

Gian Piero Ventura will surely need to make some modifications to his lineup after such a poor performance in Stockholm. Neither team was particularly impressive in the first leg of this matchup but Italy had a very disappointing display.

All told, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 can reach top speeds of over 210 miles per hour (338 km/h). Because of the American supercar's ability to hit such an insane speed, Chevrolet engineers have created two new aero packages to help with downforce.

The auto is undeniably cool, even when it's parked, but will surely look even better when it hits the street and track next spring at a price that hasn't been announced, but will likely be north of the $112,000 the last ZR1 went for in 2012.

Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009. The first of these adds a "low" rear wing.

For example, the new ZR1 has a redesigned front end with huge air intakes to feed four new radiators, which brings the total heat exchanger count to 13, according to Chevrolet. All models also feature a Chevrolet-first, downforce-enhancing front underwing. The optional ZTK Performance Package includes a front splitter and adjustable "High Wing" for 950 lbs of downforce, as well as Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer tires and more. Pricing has not been announced, though expect it to be in the range of $120,000, with various options and packages pushing it to $130,000 and beyond. Both of the rear wings are attached to the car's chassis - something Chevrolet claims will increase strength and stability.
