The year 2019 is going to bring one of the most anticipated high-performance cars in the market. It will be the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Zora ZR1 that has been announced as the fastest and the most powerful Corvette ever. The information about its release has unofficially leaked from the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The 2019 ZR1 is going to make its appearance with an evolutionary design known as the C7. The carmaker has promised the fastest street car that you have ever seen. The exterior styling of the 2019 ZR1 will definitely be innovative and more aggressive. Most of these revolutionary changes and improvements will happen in the front fascia. The most distinctive of them will probably be the carbon-fiber ‘halo’ hood. It means that one of those carbon-fiber pieces will serve as a real intercooler and expose the engine. This piece will also be moving when the engine is working while its two openings will release the hot air from the engine. Eight cylinders and better cooling simply guarantee the best performance ever. The new ZR1 should be available as a coupe and a convertible. The car will wear the rear wing as a part of its aero package. The rear wing will add up to the weight of its chassis, but also additionally enhance the overall performance. The body of the new ZR1 will be wider. In this brand-new front fascia, you will also notice the powerful front splitter and huge air intakes.
Inside the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 you can expect a driver-oriented cabin with lots of luxurious features and numerous next-generation updates.

The driver will get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, LCD screens with lots of modern options and connectivity features as well as the LED lighting inside the cabin. This model will also include the necessary safety systems and driver assist features, including lots of cameras and sensors.
The engine of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Zora ZR1 has probably been the most controversial issue. The fans will simply love the so-called LT5 engine which uses the dual-injection system for the first time. The new ZR1 will use a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that will deliver 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to a standard seven-speed manual transmission, but an eight-speed automatic will be available as well. The estimated top speed of this model goes over 210 mph.
