Product manager confirms manic performance figures
Chevrolet has touted the 2019 Corvette ZR1 has the "fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever" – but we didn't realise just how much faster it is than previous iterations.
How serious? Try 0-60mph (0-96km/h) in just 2.85 seconds. How about 0-100mph (0-161km/h)? Just 6.0 seconds flat.
Additionally, Charles told the publication the ZR1 can complete the quarter mile in just 10.6 seconds at 134mph (215km/h).
While Chevrolet is yet to confirm these figures in an official press release, it's expected the company will make some form of announcement soon given the first ZR1s are already on their way to dealers in the US.
The Corvette ZR1 is powered by a 6.2-litre 'LT5' supercharged V8 generating 563kW (755hp) of power and 969Nm of torque.
Both seven-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions are offered, with top speed rated at "over 210mph" (338km/h).
