Chevrolet introduces 2019 Corvette ZR1 with 765ps engine

Chevrolet has introduced its all-new 2019 Corvette ZR1. Fitted with a re-engineered LT5 supercharged engine which develops 765ps and 969Nm, the motor is establishing a new benchmark in Corvette performance.

“I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there’s never been one like this before,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president at Chevrolet. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.”

The ZR1’s LT5 6.2L V-8 engine delivers the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52% more displacement than the Z06’s LT4 supercharger.

GM’s first dual-fuel-injection system, which employs primary direct injection and supplemental port injection, helps the LT5 achieve its record output. Available with a seven-speed manual and eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, it’s the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1.

“As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1’s design supports its capability in every way,” said Kirk Bennion, Exterior Design manager.

“The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed.”
