2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 At VIR
During the 12 Hours of Sebring earlier this month, Harlan Charles, Corvette Product Manager, confirmed a few bits of performance information about the Corvette ZR1. Namely, the sports car will hit 60 miles per hour from a standstill in 2.85 seconds, according to CorvetteBlogger.com who confirmed the details with Charles on the record. He also noted the ZR1 could hit 100 miles per hour in just six seconds.
Those are some crazy numbers. Charles further revealed the 2019 Corvette ZR1 could run a quarter mile in 10.6 seconds at 136 miles per hour.
Ever since Chevy introduced the high-performance Corvette ZR1 rumors have swirled about the car’s actual, real-world performance numbers. At the time, Chevy was coy about the car’s performance. Now, though, it seems like the cat is finally out of the bag.

2018 Automobile All-Stars
This year was among the most difficult evaluations in the history of our event. Compelling arguments were made for far more than the eight vehicles we ultimately chose as the 2018 All-Stars, but when the votes came in, this group stood just high enough above the rest to make the top step of the podium.Automobile

Worst Car Ever: Pontiac Aztek
For us here at Hot Rod, the Aztek is one of the ugliest cars ever. These cars were aimed at the active consumer and executed in a very interesting way. Find out what Heavy D thinks of the Aztek, what Chuck would do if he was forced to drive one, and how this model upset Pontiac fans worldwide.HOT ROD
The ZR1 packs a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 LT5 engine that develops 755 horsepower (563 kilowatts) at 6,300 rpm and an immense maximum torque of 715 pound-feet (969 Newton-meters) at 4,400 rpm. It’s available with either a seven-speed manual with active rev match or an eight-speed automatic.
Almost everything about the 2019 ZR1 is about performance. Customers have the choice between two aero packages: Low Wing, which is standard, or High Wing. The Low Wing configuration allows the car to reach speeds of more than 210 mph.
The ZR1’s performance numbers aren’t much of a surprise for a 755-hp supercar. It’ll be fast and punch far above its price point, as Corvettes often do. The ZR1 is just another sub-three-second supercar that will soon adorn the walls of teenagers everywhere who hope to one day own such a beast.
The 2019 ZR1 should be on sale soon, which means we will finally be able to see the car in action. Expect a price far north of the Z06’s starting price of $79,495 MSRP but no higher than $155,833.
