GM unveils fastest Corvette ever with top speed of 210 miles per hour

GM unveils fastest Corvette ever with top speed of 210 miles per hour”

However, unofficial sources also talked about such an engine being too wide for the bay of the C7 Corvette, so we'll probably see the now-testing C8 Corvette introducing this configuration, albeit in mid-engined trim. This thing is certifiably insane, mostly due to its LT5 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 powerplant that throws down 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque - that's a whopping 105 horsepower and 65 pound-feet more than the already-incredible Corvette Z06.

According to Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, a run of the Nürburgring in the ZR1 run will likely happen, but that it's not now a top priority. "Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back". The supercar also debuted with a dynamic Sebring Orange tintcoat color with orange accents all throughout the vehicle. Believe it or not, this is the first time the ZR1 has ever had an automatic transmission. "The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed", said Kirk Bennion, exterior design manager for Corvette at GM.

Helping keep everything in check are a few special aerodynamic packages.

The Corvette is newly redesigned inside and out, with better aerodynamics and more radiators to prevent overheating as well as a roomier cockpit, a carbon fiber steering wheel, and in some models, heated seats and a Bose audio system.

And since the wait for the Convertible risks driving us mad, we've made a decision to address this by delivering a rendering of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible - we'll tip our pixels to X-Tomi for the image. Pricing and other technical specifications have yet to be revealed.
