CORVETTE ZR1

AVAILABLE SPRING 2018

Consider the pace set

ZR1 has returned to the throne to push the legendary Corvette legacy to its highest point ever. It’s a supercar that’s at once luxurious and overwhelmingly capable, delivering the icon’s fastest, most powerful, most advanced performance to date. Drivers — hail the new King.

THE FINEST

Function’s finest form yet

From the commanding stance to the muscular lines to the extensive use of carbon fiber, ZR1 was designed with one purpose in mind: performance. Take, for example, the stunning chevron-patterned carbon-fiber halo hood and engine cover. These pieces were meticulously crafted to shed weight and house the potent engine beneath — their shapes every bit as functional as they are stunning.

From where you sit, every twist and turn offers a new thrill

The interior welcomes you into a truly driver-focused oasis with standard leather seating surfaces with available sueded-microfiber inserts and unique ZR1 interior badging. Taking indulgence a step further, the 3ZR trim level adds heated and vented Napa leather seating surfaces, a leather steering wheel with carbon-fiber rim, the Performance Data Recorder, Bose® premium audio and more.

Sebring Orange Design Package

Bask in the glow. The Sebring Orange Design Package spotlights the center of attention with unmistakable Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior paint. Orange brake calipers, rocker and splitter accent stripes, seat belts and interior stitching, as well as exclusive bronze aluminum interior trim fully complement the package.

THE GREATEST

Irrefutable proof that it’s what’s inside that counts

The most powerful production Corvette ever made, ZR1 wields a new hand-assembled LT5 small block 6.2L supercharged V8 engine — an engineering marvel deservingly crowned by the book matched carbon-fiber cover.

HP and Torque

ZR1 delivers 755 horsepower and 715 lb.-ft. of torque, with over 600 lb.-ft. of torque available from 2200 rpm to redline.

Supercharger

The largest Eaton® supercharger to date delivers peak boost pressure of 13 psi and 52% larger displacement than the LT4 supercharger. With high-flow efficiency 4-lobe design rotors, it maintains peak effectiveness at higher speeds.

Throttle Body

A new 95 mm bore throttle complements the larger supercharger and dual fuel injection system to flow plenty of air into the LT5 engine.

Dual Fuel Injection System

A Chevrolet first, the new dual fuel injection system uses a port fuel rail and injectors, in addition to the Direct Injection system, to provide supplemental fueling during power enrichment moments.

Dry-Sump Lubrication

ZR1 features a dry-sump oil system, whereby oil is pumped into the engine from a 9.8 quart-capacity tank within the engine bay, ensuring oil flow to critical areas is not affected by high g-force cornering.

Major stopping power

Standard high-performance Brembo® carbon ceramic brakes featuring front 15.5-inch rotors with 6-piston calipers and rear 15.3-inch rotors with 4-piston calipers provide ultimate stopping performance.

Well-grounded

Supreme power finds balance on aluminum 19" front and 20" rear wheels clad in Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport P285/30ZR19 front and P335/25ZR20 rear summer-only tires — a combination that works in precise harmony with standard magnetic selective ride control, performance traction management and eLSD. Or opt for the ZTK Performance Package to connect to road and track with Michelin Sport Cup 2® summer-only tires and a uniquely-tuned suspension.

ZTK Performance Package

The available ZTK Performance Package was developed with a singular focus: conquering the track in record time. It adds the high rear wing and carbon fiber end caps to the front splitter for increased downforce, as well as Michelin Sport Cup 2® summer-only tires, a stiffer chassis and specific Magnetic Ride Control tuning for optimized cornering grip. 

THE SMARTEST

A force to be reckoned with

Using technology born from the Corvette racing program and engineered through lengthy testing, two sophisticated aerodynamic configurations allow ZR1 to channel its supercar strength with precision and poise.

Low Wing

LOW WING

The standard rear wing is a significant top speed enabler, offering 20 percent less drag than the available adjustable high wing, yet still helping create more downforce than the standard Z06.

High Wing

HIGH WING

The stanchion-mounted carbon-fiber high wing creates about 60 percent more downforce than the current Z06 with Z07 Performance Package while maintaining similar drag. It can be mechanically adjusted up to five degrees for different levels of downforce.  

Front Underwing

FRONT UNDERWING

A Corvette first, ZR1 borrows front underwing technology from the race car world to turn its closeout panel into a downforce control surface.  

Cooling

COOLING

ZR1 incorporates the power steering cooler, differential oil cooler and transmission cooling module from Z06 and adds five additional radiators — including four new front outboard radiators and a new front low temperature radiator — to help cool the powerful LT5 power plant.
