Concern General Motors was made, at first glance, a strange choice in favor of an exhibition in Dubai for the presentation of its charged novelty. However, on the other hand, in this country like fast cars.
American automotive brand Chevrolet held the world premiere of the most powerful version of the current generation Corvette – ZR1. It was held in the framework of the international motor show in Dubai.
The press release of the novelty says: “The king returns, and he is stronger than ever.”
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, indeed, can justify this statement thanks to the upgraded 6.2-liter V8 LT5 engine with a compressor. The engine’s power is 755 horsepower and 969 Nm of torque at 4400 rpm. To achieve an amazing result, Chevy engineers developed the first time in the history of the American concern a dual fuel injection system.
To please all representatives of the automotive world, the company will offer the Corvette ZR1 2019 model year, both with a seven-speed manual gearbox (with an active synchronizer) and an eight-speed automatic. For the first time in all generations of the Corvette, the “formidable” version of the ZR1 received an automatic transmission.
Also, future customers will be offered two aerodynamic packages for the novelty: a standard Low Wing and an optional bidirectional High Wing. Even with a standard aerial kit, the Corvette ZR1 generates 70 percent more downforce than the Z06 version. High Wing is another plus of 60 percent of downforce.
The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will go on sale next spring. Its circulation will be limited.
