A rear low wing is standard (this one helps achieve the highest top speed) while a High Wing (two-way adjustable) can be specified for those who are after high downforce on the track.

Behind those gaping air intakes and beneath that carbon fiber hood beats the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1's 755-horsepower heart. The price is yet to be announced, but if you must ask, you probably can not afford it. Count on spending six figures, though, and that's before dealers add markup. The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has been showcased and it will be the most powerful iteration of the Corvette to go in production. But the latest ZR1 comes with a supercharged, 6.2-liter LT5 V-8 engine. The LT5 delivers the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Z06's LT4 supercharger. Sending this cavalry to the rear wheels will be a seven-speed manual gearbox with rev matching, or an eight-speed automatic with wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

An all-new front fascia is created to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13.

This is what you want to know: 755 horsepower, 715 lb. -ft. of torque, top speed of over 210 miles per hour, according to General Motors.

The engine sits underneath what Chevrolet calls a "halo hood" which features a carbon fibre two-piece bonnet bulge.

Many were young men, some with their faces covered or with beer bottles in hand, but families and older Poles also participated. He added: "We are proud that so many Poles have chose to take part in a celebration connected to the Independence Day holiday".

The ZTK Performance Package will include a High Wing that is said to increase downforce by an additional 950 pounds (431 kilograms). The standard Low Wing is the one that has the least drag and enables the ZR1 to hit its claimed top speed of over 335 km/h; even so, the vehicle generates up to 70% extra downforce compared to a stock Z06 in this form.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will go on sale from the June 2018 and the base price is expected to be around $1.30 lakh (Rs 84.93 lakh, excluding import duty). All models also feature a Chevrolet-first, downforce-enhancing front underwing. Both wings are connected directly to the chassis - just like C7.R racecar - for extra strength and stability. This package also includes a front splitter with carbon fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer performance tires, revised chassis tuning, and reworked Magnetic Ride Control suspension calibration.

Unlike with the original Corvette ZR1, you can add lots of creature comforts to the 2019 version, including heated and ventilated front seats, a Bose premium audio system, and the ultimate social media bragging tool, a Performance Data Recorder.

. The driver-focused, well-appointed cockpit includes standard leather-trimmed seats, with sueded microfiber inserts offered.

The Corvette ZR1 introduced today also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package.

It's good to be the King.
