Handling is optimised by a full aero kit including a big rear wing, specially crafted front end with air intakes and guides, while the steering is conducted through a variable ratio rack-and-pinion system with electric power assist. The vehicle boasts a shocking 755 horsepower, 6.2-liter, V8 engine that can produce 715 pound per feet of torque.

Chevrolet returned the Corvette ZR1 to the lineup for 2009. The 2019 ZR1 also sports a new front fascia created to channel towards cooling the propulsion system and drivetrain, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13.

Both versions of the ZR1 come with a new front underwing, which aims to bring more stability and downforce to the vehicle. 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. This is the first automatic transmission ever offered on the ZR1, but Chevrolet still recommends the manual transmission for track driving.

Said "High Wing" is available via the ZR1's "Performance Package", along with an angrier front splitter, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, plus specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control damper fettling "for greater cornering grip".

It's "immersion in Tiffany-not only the feeling of being inside a Blue Box-but surrounded by Tiffany hospitality", Moore says. Blue Box opens to the public Friday, Nov. 10 and will be open during regular store hours (10 a.m.to 7 p.m.

The new king of Corvettes is to go on sale in spring.

Another quick giveaway is the ZR1's carbon fiber hood that features that helps cover an engine three inches taller than what's powering the Z06. Mated to this engine can either be a seven-speed manual (thank you!) or an eight-speed automatic transmission. What's more, the model comes with two aerodynamic packages, fine-tuned in wind-tunnel testing; one includes a standard rear Low Wing that allows the new ZR1 to hit a top speed of over 210 miles per hour (338 km/h), the other an adjustable High Wing which generates around 950 pounds of downforce for the quickest lap times. Additional front aero will jam the ZR1 even harder into the track. A "standard rear low wing" will serve up that 210-mph dragstrip speed, while an adjustable "high wing" will enhance downforce and improve racetrack go-around-corners performance.

A low wing package decreases downforce in comparison, but it's with this package that the claimed 210mph top speed can be achieved.

A further option, the "Sebring Orange Design Package", adds orange accents as well as orange seat belts and stitching combined with the Sebring Orange Tintcoat paint. Meanwhile, the new Sebring Orange Design Package is all about making yourself noticed, inside and out. The driver-focused, well-appointed cockpit includes standard leather-trimmed seats, with sueded microfiber inserts offered.
