Plane fare to the United Arab Emirates is expensive. You know what isn’t? Streaming video on YouTube.
In case you couldn’t attend the unveiling of the all-new, 755-horsepower 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in Dubai last weekend, you can watch the highlights from the event in the video above, which was published to YouTube by DPCcars. The new ZR1 is the most powerful production Corvette ever built, leveraging a supercharged, 6.2-liter OHV V8 dubbed “LT5”. It’s also equipped to produce far more downforce than the C7 Z06, which Chevrolet hopes can help achieve a sub-7-minute lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The video features appearances from GM Africa & Middle East President and Managing Director Mario A. Spangenberg; GM North America President and Global Chevrolet Brand Chief Alan Batey; Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter; and GM Director of Exterior Design for Performance Cars Tom Peters.
It’s expected that the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will serve as a super-high-performance send-off to the C7 generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, which is believed to be the final front-engined iteration of the iconic sportscar, with the C8 premiering a mid-engine layout in 2019.
