Folks who know their Corvette are aware that the ZR1 moniker means that this is the most powerful model in the range. The bowtie brand once again reinforces this notion as it introduces a truly potent machine in a place considered to be the playground of the rich and famous—Dubai.
Yes, Chevrolet somehow chose the rich man’s sandbox as a backdrop to unveil what it says is the most powerful and fastest Vette to date. When we say powerful, we refer to a mind-blowing 755hp and 969Nm of torque. These numbers are produced in no small part by a new dual fuel injection system, among other tweaks.
Buyers of the ZR1 can, for the first time, choose between two transmission options. Aside from the standard 7-speed manual, one can opt to go automatic via an 8-speed box. And just like the tranny, two aero packages are available to give the best aerodynamic efficiency and performance on both road and track.
