I was finally able to track down a complete video of Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and Chevy Performance Design Chief Tom Peters introducing the 2019 Corvette ZR1 from Dubai.
Chevrolet is calling the ZR1 the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever! The Corvette ZR1’s LT5 engine is SAE-certified at 755-hp and 715 pounds-torque and Tadge says it can “hit a top speed easily of over 210 miles per hour.”
Tom Peters breaks down all the carbon fiber bits and pieces on the car, and says “From front to back, the ZR1 has the most carbon fiber construction ever in a Corvette, providing for lighter weight and strength that’s needed for it to be a world-class performer.”
Tadge ends his comments on the Corvette ZR1 with the following statement which I think is appropriate to share as we are looking at what is most likely to be the last front engine Corvette. He said:
“Since the name first appeared in 1970, the ZR1 has always represented the king of Corvette performance. Performance that is among the elite cars in the world while also delivering daily drivability. This new generation is the result of a strong alliance between design and engineering and our team’s combined efforts have created the finest Corvette in our history.”
