GM Takes On Ferrari & Lamborghini With 2019 Corvette ZR1

Tonight (11/28/17) at a party in downtown Los Angeles, Chevrolet unveiled the fastest Corvette ever, the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

It's also the most powerful street car General Motors has ever produced.

The six-figure coupe comes with a 755-horsepower V8 engine and a top speed of 210mph. That's more powerful than even Ferrari's $320,000 F12 and Lamborghini's $422,000 Aventador S. As many as 2,500 will be made, and pricing will start at $119,995. A convertible version will also become available in spring 2018, which will start at $123,995.

Chevy initially unveiled it in Dubai earlier this year, but this is the first time the car will be seen live in North America. The model is the fourth-ever iteration of the ZR1 badge, which ran intermittently in the 1970s and 1990s and early 2000s.
