2019 Corvette ZR1 - Possibru

Seems legit. Stolen from CF.








- Starting price expected to be around $120k
- 7 speed manual and 8 speed automatic
- 1/2" wider than Z06 front wheels
- Mag Ride standard
- Carbon Ceramic Brakes
- 750hp/680 lb-ft LT5 (6.2L, pushrod V8, Eaton supercharger)
- Supercharger produces 52% more air per RPM than the Z06 blower, also 2.9" taller.
- Because of the hood height, car can not be sold in Europe
- Tadge claims the ZR1 can shoot flames out from its exhaust
- NEW fuel delivery system- BOTH PORT INJECTION AND DIRECT INJECTION
- sub 3 second 0-60, sub 11 second 1/4 mile, 210+ mph top speed
- 4 additional heat exchangers (comparing to Z06) in the nose
- Curb weight 3664 lbs, 140 lbs over Z06
- Several aero packages available, RPO "ZTK" as shown in magazine. Wing has 10 degrees of adjustability, contributing to 500 lbs of downforce at speed.
- Wing is attached behind the hatch and spreads the load to the bumper beam.
- Removable top
- 2.5 seconds faster around VIR than Z06

I like the hood, front fenders with no extensions and the bigger blower. The front bumper and aero will surely be very effective but it looks a bit too "time attack" for me right now. I'm sure once I see it enough and in person, my eyes will calm things down. Biggest gripe for current Z owners is insufficient cooling to run many laps in hot weather. The additional radiators and aggressive front bumper for airflow should def correct that issue.

Nahhhh. Too much $$ and I'm a fan of that healthy late model discount when the masses stop caring about the car.

Looks like the CF center section stays with them motor when the hood opens. Pretty cool.

Not a fan of the front bumper/Splitter/EvilFangs, but i wasnt a fan of the ZL1s front bumper either but that has grown on me.

Color also doesnt transfer to well onto paper.

Exactly. Car is heavily discounted but doesn't mean the product is poor or undesirable. Kind of like the Hellcat. You can get big discounts on them.

I have been told the ZL1/1LE is faster on big tracks because of a cooling advantage.

It wouldn't surprise me but I'd still give the vette the nod on a hot lap. Races aren't one lap so...yea.
