Attention World: the Corvette ZR1 is Back and it Has 750 HP




Quote:
The 2019 Corvette ZR1 has made its official debut marking the arrival of the fastest, most powerful production Chevrolet to date.

The ZR1 is powered by a new supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine dubbed LT5, which is good for 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the 650 hp LT4 engine in the Z06, the LT5 has 52 percent larger supercharger, a more efficient intercooler system and a dual-injection system with both direct and port injection. Unlike the C6 ZR1, which could only be ordered with a 6-speed manual, this new model will be available with both a seven-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Chevy also says it will do 210 mph.

I think the wing is hideous. The only way I could drive that is as a dedicated track vehicle. It reminds me of an oversized ricer. If you want that horsepower and torque send your Z06 to Callaway.

It's also available without the Tall wing. You get the Stage 3 spolier and wicker bill from the Z06 optioned Z07 package.

I didn't know that. All the pics I've seen so far have the big wing. I'd take the aero package on my 2017 Z06 with the Z07 package but at a sticker on my current Z over $100,000, I think I'm all in on what I've got.

That car is just plain sick. Considering the cost, it is one heck of a deal. I hope they are successful at busting the 7 minute production car record at the ring.

Why does anyone need all that horsepower?

It makes for an impressive dyno sheet if you do a dyno run but aside from that 755 HP is mostly unusable for 99% of normal driving trying to get it all hooked up.

Been there done that.
