On the torque side, there's 715 lb-ft, or 969 Nm. The LT5 is an evolution of the old LT4, comprising of 6.2 litres of combustion capacity, pressurised by an intercooled supercharger. Another GM first is the car's dual fuel injection system, comprising primary direct injection as well as port injection. This marks the first time an automatic has been offered on the coveted ZR1. Mated to this engine can either be a seven-speed manual (thank you!) or an eight-speed automatic transmission. It features Active Rev Matching, which Chevrolet debuted on the current-generation Corvette. The new model weighs 10 pounds more compared to the Z06 version, being with 171 pounds heavier than the previous ZR1. That exceeds the prior-gen ZR1 by at least 5 miles per hour. We don't know everything about the ZR1 yet, but here are the most important figures released so far.

Okay, so the Corvette ZR1 isn't in that territory. Chevrolet isn't quite making the decision as binary as that, but when you're ordering your shiny new 2019 Corvette ZR1 you do have a choice to make.

That's right, you can have the ZR1 in two aerodynamic configurations.

"The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed". It will hold 755 horsepower under its hood, having a top speed of more than 210mph.

Still, as you'd hope, that's not to say that the converse isn't true in either case.

A low-wing pack is available to maximise the ZR1's top speed, while a two-way-adjustable high wing generates more downforce and is designed for faster lap times.

The eight generation of America's most famous sports auto is expected to ditch its front-engine layout, putting the V8 in the middle to help the bow tie brand compete with the best European sports cars, including the Porsche 911, Ferrari 488 GTB and McLaren 720S.

Chevy says the Corvette ZR1 will go on sale next spring, without revealing how much it's going to cost. However, Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter promises the ZR1's price won't be double that of a Stingray, which starts at $56,590.
