Acceleration is just as impressive: zero to 60 mph takes place in only 2.85 seconds, with power delivered to the rear wheels via either a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters.

The low wing configuration offers 20 percent less drag than the high wing while still producing more downforce than the standard Z06, while the high wing generates 60 percent more downforce than the Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package, in part thanks to the stanchion-mounted carbon fiber rear wing. The underfloor of the car is also designed for maximum downforce. If that weren’t enough, the Corvette ZR1 also uses high-performance Brembo® carbon ceramic brakes, Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ adaptive suspension, and Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 tires to stay utterly glued to the track.

The driver-focused cockpit is designed for extensive customization. The Head-Up Display, which allows you to get vital performance information without moving your eyes from the road, offers three different views. The eight-inch LCD instrument cluster, which shows g force, tire temperature and oil pressure, also comes in three different themes. Then there’s the driver mode selector, which lets you calibrate up to 12 performance variables to get your Corvette ZR1 feeling perfect whether at the track, on the highway or in city streets.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a phenomenon. With 755 horsepower under the hood and impressive aerodynamic wizardry to keep it planted in corners, it’s a car to look out for in the future. Expect track records to fall.
