The 2019 ZR1 is a supercar that advances Corvette's performance legacy with the highest power, greatest track performance and most advanced technology in its production history. It is offered in 1ZR and 3ZR trims in coupe and convertible body styles.
The ZR1's LT5 6.2L V-8 engine advances Corvette's supercharging legacy, offering the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Z06's LT4 supercharger. General Motors' first dual-fuel-injection system, which employs primary direct injection and supplemental port injection, helps the LT5 achieve 755 horspower and 715 lb.-ft. of torque.
The ZR1's aggressive appearance is driven by function, with a unique front fascia designed to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, including four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13.
A special carbon-fiber "halo" hood is open in the middle to clear the LT5 engine's supercharger/intercooler assembly. Additional features, including aero packages with stanchionmounted wings, help push the ZR1 harder onto the track for more confident handling and faster lap times.
Two aero packages are offered: A standard rear Low Wing, which delivers the highest top speed and an available two-way-adjustable High Wing that offers maximum downforce on the track for the quickest lap times.
The adjustable High Wing is part of the available ZTK Track Performance Package, which also includes a front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer-only tires, and specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for greater cornering grip.
Both of the ZR1's wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability.
