215MPH, 2.2s 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Steals LA Auto Show



Performance on the ZR1 is so insane that not even Chevy knows how fast it is yet.  210MPH+ is all they will say on record.  755HP makes this ZR1 earn its racing spats, sills and wings.

Is it angel or demon in the US car business these days!?

Check out the latest photos of the Convertible, which will carry a $124k sticker that’s about five grand more than the hardtop.  Both have the giant wing and Sebring Orange designer package available!

More details to follow.  Gallery and official tech specs below.
