2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 – The Most pPowerful Corvette Ever Made

2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 at Les Stanford ChevroletThe 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the most powerful Corvette ever created, built for setting records at the track and at the strip. The appropriately increased price tag edges it into supercar territory and with that comes lofty expectations of performance — all of which it meets.

A new and hand-assembled, 6.2-liter LT5 supercharged, small block V8 engine sits under the hood of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. It outputs 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque, with more than 84 percent of that torque available from 2,200 RPM all the way to the redline. The supercharger delivers 13 psi of boost pressure, helping the Corvette ZR1 achieve an astounding top speed of 212 miles per hour. 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. And with four sound profiles available — Track, Sport, Tour and Stealth — you can relish in the sound of the V8 in all kinds of new ways.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1’s aerodynamics were designed with knowledge gleaned from the Corvette Racing program. The car is available in two different aero configurations: low wing and high wing. 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.

The 2017 Corvette: Your Guide to the Latest Versions of America’s Sports Car

2017 Chevy Corvette at Les Stanford Chevrolet Corvette KingIts status as the most iconic sports car in American history means that every new Corvette has a lot of history to live up to. Fortunately, the folks at Chevrolet have delivered yet again, with a lineup of 2017 Corvettes that manage to hit the mark in the areas of both style and performance. One model is even the quickest sports car that General Motors has ever built. Check out the details of the 2017 Chevy Corvette Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06 to find out what the bowtie brand has cooked up for the current model year.

2017 Chevy Corvette Stingray
Though technically an entry-level model, the Stingray is an exceptional sports car in its own right, boasting the kind of power and sexy design that most automakers would reserve for a top-of-the-line vehicle. The remarkably affordable Stingray’s naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LT1 V8 boasts 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and can be paired with either a manual or automatic gearbox. That powertrain can accelerate the Stingray from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat. Bucket seats, an independent suspension and staggered 18- and 19-inch wheels wrapped in performance tires are among the standard features on this well-equipped vehicle.

2017 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport
The Grand Sport features the same well-appointed interior and powerful V8 engine found inside the Stingray, but this engine slightly increases the car’s output to 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Other track-minded enhancements include larger 19- and 20-inch wheels, standard adaptive Magnetic Ride Control and an electronic limited-slip differential that all maximize the amount of power that may be put to the ground when pulling out of a corner. With a zero-to-60 time of 3.6 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 11.8 seconds, those changes clearly paid dividends. When fitted with the optional Z07 Performance package, the GS becomes even more potent thanks to upgrades that include Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and an improved chassis.

2017 Chevy Corvette Z06
The range-topping Corvette Z06 is not just the fastest Corvette available, but the quickest sports car that GM has ever produced. This is thanks to a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 engine that produces 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, accelerating the Z06 from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 2.95 seconds and setting a quarter-mile time of 10.95 seconds. Larger standard brakes and an aerodynamic kit accommodate the vehicle’s increased performance, which represents the pinnacle of American muscle.

Whether you opt for the Stingray, Grand Sport or Z06, purchasing a 2017 Chevy Corvette is your ticket to performance-oriented fun and excitement. Visit Les Stanford Chevrolet, America’s Corvette King, for yours!

Inside the Track-Ready 2017 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport

2017 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport at Les Stanford ChevroletThe latest member of the Corvette lineup, the 2017 Grand Sport, is a car in touch with its own history. Equipped with a legendary LT1 6.2-liter engine, the new model proudly carries on the racing tradition of the original 1963 Vette. The aggressive styling, stance and powertrain that longtime enthusiasts have come to expect from a Corvette are all present in the Grand Sport.

The automobile often referred to as “America’s sports car” shows no signs of wanting to cede its title. For Corvettes, performance is where it counts, and the 2017 Grand Sport does not disappoint. The 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine is capable of a thrilling 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, and it can be paired to your choice of a standard seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching or an available eight-speed, paddle-shift automatic transmission. That adds up to a blistering 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds, but also manages a surprisingly decent EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 26 mpg.

When you are dealing with that kind of performance, you need some serious stopping power. Fortunately the delivers in that area, as well, as large standard BREMBO 14.6″/14.4″ two-piece steel rotors give great braking control, and available massive 15.5″/15.3″ BREMBO carbon ceramic rotors with the Z07 Performance Package help cut down on heat, lap after lap.

The 2017 Grand Sport is the best of both worlds: a fresh and exciting new car, but also a widely recognized automobile with a world-class pedigree. Born nearly 55 years ago, the original 1963 Corvette Grand Sport featured lightweight materials and a 6.2-liter 377 CI small block V8 engine. Though only five prototypes in total were built, it set the tone for what was to come from Chevy in the ensuing decades. In 1996, the Grand Sport returned with a limited run of 1,000 models featuring LT4 V8 engines, which marked the end of the fourth-gen Corvette. In 2010 the Grand Sport was again resurrected, this time on a Z06 chassis and equipped with a 436-horsepower, 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine.

After a seven-year hiatus, the Corvette Grand Sport is now back and better than ever. Not only is this the most powerful model in Grand Sport history, it also boasts exciting new features, including available Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder, which logs video of your driving sessions, and Valet mode, which keeps a watchful eye on your vehicle when someone else is driving it. Because when you possess something this strong, beautiful and respected, it is easy to get a little jealous. Get yours at Les Stanford Chevrolet, America’s Corvette King!
