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

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

The auto was discontinued after 1995, production totaling fewer than 7,000 units.

The rest seem to be mostly also rans in their respective category. The other three include the 1990 Corvette ZR-1, the 2009 Corvette ZR1, and this upcoming 2019 model.

That's over 100 more horsepower than the Z06 'Vette.

The engine is paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission, with an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.

Looking for a price? The price is yet to be announced, but if you must ask, you probably can not afford it. Count on spending six figures, though, and that's before dealers add markup.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has been showcased and it will be the most powerful iteration of the Corvette to go in production.

Chevrolet has created and unveiled the most powerful and fastest Corvette in the history of the automaker: the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009.

The new supercar features a re-shaped front end that has massive air intakes in order to fuel four radiators. There's also a new carbon fiber "halo" hood that was developed specifically for the cooling of the new engine version sporting the highest output ever for a street-legal Chevrolet production auto.

Chevrolet has spent a lot of time making sure the ZR1 stays cool when driven hard (you might remember the Z06 having some rather well-publicised heat soak issues). Top speed of the ZR1 is over 210 miles per hour.

"As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1's design supports its capability in every way", said Exterior Design manager Kirk Bennion. Alternatively, you can specify the High Wing, which maximizes downforce and is optimized for going around corners at track speeds. With or without the ZTK there's a first-ever front underwing, as well. Both of the new ZR1's wing setups are attached directly to the chassis, similar to the construction on the Corvette Racing C7.R.

In case all that won't say ZR1 enough, Chevy has also developed a special Sebring Orange paint scheme and appearance package for the vehicle.

The new design package complements the Corvette ZR1's tradition of offering maximum performance with refinement and design distinction.

The ZR1's leather seats have available microfiber inserts. Other available features include competition sport seats, a performance data recorder, Bose premium audio system and a carbon fiber rimmed sport steering wheel.

Chevrolet says the 2019 Corvette ZR1 goes on sale in spring 2018, with pricing to be announced closer to that time.

It's good to be the King.
