Car and Driver’s Lightning Lap series is an annual test to see how new cars from different classes fare against each other. This time around, it’s the 2019 Corvette ZR1‘s turn.
The Corvette ZR1 features an LT5 6.2L V-8 supercharged engine which dramatically advances the supercharging technologies first introduced in the 2009 sixth-generation Corvette ZR1 and continued with the 2015 seventh-generation Z06 Corvette. The engine, which is officially rated with an SAE-certified 755 horsepower (563 kW) and 715 lb-ft of torque (969Nm), establishes an entirely new benchmark in Chevrolet performance.
Let’s watch the video to see how the Corvette did.
