All hail the ZR1, returning the Chevy Corvette to its rightful status as the dominant supercar in a field full of pretenders. The 2019 Corvette ZR1 will be the fastest Corvette ever produced. Powered by a 755-horsepower LT5 engine, next year’s ZR1 will also produce 715 pounds of torque, guaranteed to pin you back in your seat as you launch off the line. “I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there’s never been one like this before,” according to Chevy supply chain VP Mark Reuss. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.” Be first in line to buy the fastest Corvette ever when it makes an appearance at Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

Aerodynamics Plus Power Equals Performance

Start with the new supercharged 6.2L V8 that delivers the highest energy output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle. A new highly-efficient cooled supercharger combines with Chevy’s first dual fuel-injection system to combine a mixture of gasoline and air that results in an explosion of power that’s certain to plaster a smile on your face. You can choose a seven-speed manual transmission if you really like to get involved in the driving experience, or take the eight-speed automatic that does the work when you’re feeling relaxed, but gives you the option of using the paddle shifters on the steering wheel when the moment feels right. Two new aerodynamics packages have been fined-tuned after many hours of wind tunnel testing to produce up to 950 pounds of downforce, keeping your new Chevy Corvette ZR1 glued to the road. “As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1’s design supports its capability in every way,” according to design manager Kirk Bennion. “The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed.”

Dynamic Design Unquestionably That of a Supercar

The new Chevy Corvette ZR1 features a dynamic design that includes an orange package with a stunning Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior paint job, orange brake calipers, orange striping and orange accents and stitching on the interior. Unique bronze aluminum trim gives a distinct look and feeling of sophistication to the interior, where the standard leather-trimmed seats and available heated and cooled seats provide a level of comfort not available on most sports cars. A Bose premium audio system lets you crank up the tunes when you want to hear something than the throaty rumble of the exhaust system. You’ll also love the performance data recorder that lets you keep an ongoing log of your best track times as you put the new ZR1 through its paces in a safe atmosphere. Remember to check in next spring at Chapman Chevrolet for a test drive and opportunity to take the new Corvette ZR1 home.

A Spice Red interior and convertible top are now available on select models, as are new contrasting interior stitching patterns.

Stingray Has Five New Wheel Options

The 2018 Chevy Corvette Stingray now has five different wheel options, including a Motorsport design. A larger wheel size is also standard, with the 2018 featuring 19-inch front wheels and 20-inches in the rear. That’s inch larger than the previous model.

Inspired by Legacy of Performance

The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is a tribute to a legacy of racing success that started in 1963. That’s when Chevrolet first produced five Grand Sport models to take on the racing world. Now 54 years later, the newest Corvette model features a lightweight structure and aerodynamics fine-tuned on the race track. “Racing has been part of Corvette’s essence for more than 50 years and that track experience has helped us build better, more capable cars,” according to Chevy executive vice president Mark Reuss. “The global acclaim for the seventh-generation Corvette validates that direct link and the 2017 Grand Sport takes its track-bred technology to a new, exciting threshold.” The Grand Sport coupe and convertible will be on sale at Chapman Chevrolet this summer, with a special collector edition coming later in the year.

LT1 Engine Provides Plenty of Pop

The Chevy Corvette LT1 V8 delivers 460 horsepower, which is more than enough performance for this lightweight vehicle. Michelin Pilot sport summer tires, mounted on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear rims help you grip the road as you put the car through those weekend runs. A high-tech Brembo brake system helps you stop and standard magnetic ride control and stabilizer bars deliver a comfortable and sporty drive. A seven speed manual transmission is standard, with an available eight-speed automatic paddle shifter.

Add Z07 Package for Superior Performance

Although the new Corvette Grand Sport is a high-performance machine with its standard configuration, an available Z07 racing package ups the ante of your driving experience. “We didn’t hold back with the new Grand Sport,” Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter said. “For the first time, buyers can equip the Grand Sport with a Z07 performance package – which adds carbon-ceramic brakes, Michelin Sport Cup 2 summer tires, and carbon-fiber aero package that delivers true downforce.” The result is a car that is only a second off the track record at GM’s Milford Proving Ground.

Collector Edition Adds Tension Blue Leather Interior

Step up to the Grand Sport Collector Edition and you get a Watkins Glen Gray Metallic paint job with Tension Blue graphics, satin black stripes, black wheels and a leather interior wrapped in suede that has a matching Tension Blue accent. Headrests are emblazoned with a three-dimensional representation of the original Grand Sport race car. That shape carries over to an instrument panel plaque that also displays the car’s build number. See how beautiful a car can be when the Chevy Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition hits the Chapman Chevrolet showroom later this year.
