Chevrolet Teases 2019 Corvette ZR1 Before November 12 Debut

Shortly after images of the long-awaited 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 leaked online, the car manufacturer has released a teaser video previewing the model and confirming its November 12 debut.

The video, posted on Instagram, shows off a host of eye-popping new features of the track-focused Corvette. Among these components is an exposed section of carbon fiber on the hood, a front grille with similar shapes to the Camaro ZL1, a large carbon fiber rear wing, and a new set of quad tailpipes.

As we revealed a couple of days ago, the new Corvette ZR1 will make its public debut at the Dubai Motor Show before heading to the U.S. for a local launch at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Beneath the skin, the 2019 ZR1 will feature a 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine with an Eaton supercharger, not a twin-turbo setup as originally predicted. Power will sit at 750 hp and 680 lb-ft of torque. The new car will also accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in under 3 seconds, record a sub-11-second quarter mile and lap Virginia International Raceway a full 2.5 seconds faster than the Z06.

    I’m sure it’s very impressive. But I would wait to see that mid-engine car first.

    Awesome! I’m still very disappointed that it won’t have the 10 speed but I can’t wait for this car. I’m looking forward to see how the active aero works too.

    How can it be the 2019. We are still in 2017. Do the yanks have a different Callander

      It’s model year 2019, that means production will start in summer 2018. Right now Chevy cars are in MY2018

      Model year calendars are usually ahead by about 3 to 6 months. Also, the 2018 Corvette production run is going to end before next summer at which the 2019 Corvette will be produced.

      Can’t see the badges all the well. I’m being very obsessive about this for some reason.

      Edit: Ok, there it is. Never mind.
