2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 breaks cover in Dubai, which is the home of the fabulous, rich, and fast. The latest iteration has a lot of similarities with Z06, yet adds more refinement, power, and giant optional rear wing as well as a pledge that this fast car is for everybody. Even if the all new ZR1 has top speed of over 210mph, the Camaro ZL1 1LE and Z06 still make the market go crazy.
Dubai was chosen by General Motors for the worldwide premiere of the last celebration of C7 generation Corvette and ZR1 crown’s return that was applied to the 3rd generation Corvette in year 1979, C6 in 2009, and C4 in 1990. Tadge Juechter, the chief engineer, said that they do not do a ZR1 each generation and it isn’t an automatic.
It was before the popular Dubai auto show when the private unveiling was actually held. Corvette continues to grow in fame in the Middle East, which made Dubai a great place for global debut, according to the director of GM’s exterior design, Tom Peters.
There is still no official announcement about the pricing, yet it is expected to exceed $130,000. Most of the suspected details are already confirmed. The new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 continues with 6.2L pushrod small block V8, yet GM calls this as an updated version of supercharged engine, which is the LT5. It is a bit confusing since the expectation is that LT5 would refer to the switch to DOHC V8. The new ZR1 sticks with the traditional overhead value of Corvette, which is 2 valves each cylinder.
The look of 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 reveals the efforts of the car manufacturer that has gone for greater performance. It comes with leather-trimmed seats with microfiber that’s suede-like and another option to make them cooled and heated. As of now, GM is getting ready for the new ZR1.
