C7 Corvette ZR1 Tops 161 MPH Over Half A Mile

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was a groundbreaking achievement, designed to elevate the Corvette brand in terms of power, track performance, and technology, marking the pinnacle of its 66-year production history. It also marked the end of the era of front-engine Hyper-Corvettes.

Beneath the hood, it boasted Chevrolet’s exclusive LT5 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine, pushing the Corvette’s supercharging legacy further with an astounding 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque, setting a new Chevrolet production vehicle power record. With this setup, the C7 Corvette ZR1 is capable of propelling itself from 0-60 in 3 seconds and reach a top speed of 212 mph.
