The new Corvette ZR1 will make its debut on November 12, per a teaser video released on the official Corvette Facebook page. The video quickly pans over dark body panels with the powerful Corvette idling and revving its 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine.
New information from the leaked Car and Driver cover story on the 2019 Corvette ZR1 surfaced as well. From the magazine, posted to Corvette Forum, we know the ZR1’s engine will adopt the LT5 designation, but it is not a DOHC design. Instead, it features a larger supercharger over the LT4 V8, a larger throttle body, stronger crankshaft and a new fuel injection system.
The leaked information also stated the suspension is identical to the Corvette Z06 but boasts different tuning and that the car itself will shoot flames from the exhaust. Because we need a Corvette to shoot flames.
