The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is on sale now. With its launch, it becomes the fastest 'Vette ever produced by the factory, housing a supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V8 making 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque. It comes with either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. Top speed with the low wing is 212 mph; the tall wing drops that to a measley 202.

What is it: The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a two-seater coupe with better performance for your dollar than anything with four wheels.

In “A Briefer History of Time,” the late Stephen Hawking’s layman’s version of his bestselling book, the astrophysicist quickly blows out the notion of absolute space and absolute time. It reads like theory, but after driving the 755-hp 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1, I now know that time travel is possible. The newest ’Vette doesn’t merely get you around a racetrack, it teleports you from one corner to the next. Once there, you can carry so much speed it’s as if you’re in a rocket slingshotting around the moon to get to Mars. And as someone who, until now, only ever became nauseous in the passenger seat while on a racetrack, I can say that time travel is tough on the internal organs. The only respite is on long straights, like at Road Atlanta, where besides easily cresting 150 mph, a driver can relax, get his or her bearings back and prepare for the next 40-mph left-right combo.For those not familiar, the new ZR1 is the … [Read more...] about 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 first drive: Spacetime

The engine has GM’s first dual fuel-injection system, which uses primary direct injection and supplemental port injection. The exhaust system has four different modes: Stealth, Tour, Sport, and Track. Stealth is, of course, the quietest and Track is the loudest, with virtually unrestricted exhaust flow. Chevrolet claims the ZR1 coupe is capable of a top speed of 212 mph, with 0-60-mph runs of less than 3.0 seconds and expected quarter-mile ETs in the 10-second range.
