Being far away from America, Dubai may seem like a strange place for Chevrolet to launch its 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. But using a city whose mantra is quot impossible is just an opinion quot as a launchpad for the most powerful Corvette ever actually feels completely natural once you re here on the ground.
Based on the seventh-generation Corvette, this is only the fourth-generation ZR1, and it features a number of key innovations that help make it the most powerful production Corvette ever. General Motors isnt releasing all of its performance stats just yet, but we do know some tasty titbits. Namely 755 horsepower and 715 pound feet of torque in a package that weighs 3,650 pounds.
Chevy officials promise that the ZR1 will do better than 210 miles per hour, and with 105 more horses and 65 pound-feet more torque, its not unreasonable to suspect that it will be quicker to 60 mph than 2.95 seconds, GM’s official time for the Corvette Z06.
