GM unveils fastest Corvette ever with top speed of 210 miles per hour

Chevy Is Aiming for a Sub-Seven Minute Corvette ZR1 Nürburgring Lap

Luckily, the Corvette ZR1 won't cost anywhere near the $293,200 one needs to fork out for a GT2 RS, which means it doesn't need to aim for the overall record either.

Thus far a production version of the 2019 ZR1 has not seen track time at the 'Ring. The 2019 Corvette ZR1 is outfitted with a larger supercharger and intercooler that pushes power to 750hp, over 100 more than the previous models. The supercar delivers unprecedented performance, making it the most powerful production Corvette ever.

And the new one announced this week really lives up to its billing, with a mighty 745bhp and 715 lb ft of torque from its supercharged V8, and a top speed, in new low-drag form, said to be 210mph plus. The powertrain will be available with either a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic gearbox.

Chevrolet will be offering two aerodynamic packages. The second option is an adjustable High Wing that offers up to 950 pounds of downforce.

Wing High Wing is part of a package ZTK Performance, which also includes carbon-fiber splitter with end plates, active dampers with magnetorheological fluid and tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2.

The Corvette is newly redesigned inside and out, with better aerodynamics and more radiators to prevent overheating as well as a roomier cockpit, a carbon fiber steering wheel, and in some models, heated seats and a Bose audio system.
