The new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has the answer to this simple question: What is the fastest Chevrolet vehicle ever built? The remarkable engineering behind this beautiful vehicle is not just a visual delight; the performance is incredible. You just need to see a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in action to witness the performance that the 212 MPH 2019 ZR1 provides. Without a doubt, the ZR1 is the fastest Chevy of all-time.

What does this unhinged speed provide? More than just a pending speeding ticket, as the performance in this vehicle surpasses what many drivers would expect and few drivers ever get to try. Consumers can expect a new Corvette that has received several enhancements for performance. Can you actually believe the engineers responsible for making the Corvette Z06 weren’t pleased with their final result? They worked extra hard to not feel that way again with the new 2019 Corvette ZR1.

“Things haven’t changed… as far as stretching the technology envelope. ZR1 has to set the upper limits of performance and be a technological beacon in chassis, design and materials.” – General Motors executive VP of Global Product Development, Mark Reuss.

Improvements and Engine Enhancements

Corvette engineers weren’t as impressed with their engine in the Z06, so they set their sights higher with the ZR1 engine to make their supercar the fastest one yet. (As if a supercharged LT4 V8 engine that produced 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque wasn’t enough.) If the Z06 was a failure in the eyes of the engineers, then we can only imagine what kind of optimization was performed on a vehicle the team is proud of.

The result? Chevy improved by delivering 755-horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque with the all-new supercharged LT5 V8 engine. This new engine can accelerate from to 60 MPH in just 2.8 seconds and 0-100 MPH in only 6.0 seconds! The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was actually timed at hitting 215 MPH when being tested.

Increased cooling airflow was needed to help accommodate the additional power provided by the LT5 engine. The creative team at Chevrolet came up with a way to increase performance by boosting the cooling flow by widening the nose to increase the intake area. With a dual fuel system (half direct injection and half port injection) and a stronger crankshaft, this is what makes the difference to the ZR1 that wasn’t found in the Z06.

Further Enhancements of the ZR1

The ZR1 has exactly a half-inch wider front rim size compared to the Z06. Aside from the improvements to the engine and overall speed, improvements to the chassis and power upgrades are noticeable compared to the Z06. Drivers of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will experience a ride unlike any other.

Among the competitors, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 provides a faster ride than the Porsche 911 Turbo S, as well as better fuel economy than the Ford GT. With all that speed, there’s surprising fuel efficiency with the ZR1 at 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. The price of the base model Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is $122,095 MSRP (plus destination fee).
