The 2019 Corvette ZR1 is certainly not the first supercar to hit the roads, but it just might be the best. Corvette has a long legacy of pushing the envelope when it comes to creating powerful supercars, but the ZR1 pushes the Corvette to a new level. It’s the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever while still maintaining the luxury and elegance people want when they choose this vehicle. If you have a craving for supercars, expect to be satiated with this high-performing beauty.
Get Ready for Top Speed
So, how fast is fast enough for a supercar? Just how fast do you need to go to feel like you have all the power? How about 212 mph? That’s the top track speed for the 2019 ZR1. Just how does it go so fast? Well, pop the hood and take a look. That’s where you’ll find the insane 6.2-liter LT5 supercharged small block V8 engine. This bad boy produces 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque.
Of course, the design doesn’t hurt either when it comes to speed. The carbon fiber engine cover and halo hood keep the vehicle lightweight so it can fly off the line, and the aerodynamic shape keeps it moving quickly from one lap to the next.
Control and Confidence
The ZR1 has a ton of power. How can you possibly stay in control?
It comes down to the chassis technology. The ZR1 has Magnetic Selective Ride Control. It actually reads the road every single millisecond, and it adjusts accordingly. Adjustments take less than 15 milliseconds.
This system doesn’t work alone. It works with the Performance Traction Management and Electronic Limited-Slip Differential, so you’ll always feel in control when you’re behind the wheel. It’s easy to have confidence when you’re driving this beast of a vehicle.

What’s That Sound?
The ZR1 isn’t just a monster on the track. It sounds like it too, thanks to the four-mode exhaust system. Choose from Track, Sport, Tour, and Stealth sound profiles. That way, you can sound like you’re flying around the race track on your way to Tiger Stadium, or you can stay quiet while sneaking into the parking lot at Juban’s.
