Introducing GM's most powerful street car ever, the 2019 Corvette ZR1, with a 755 horsepower supercharged V8, super wide tires and the rear wing of your choosing. It will also do more than 210 miles per hour, just in case you're in a rush.

The C7 Stingray wasn't designed with the ZR1 in mind, but according to Chevrolet, the platform can take the power without any problem.

And power, there's plenty of: 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque.

The active exhaust is a patent-pending new design, with a wider range and more noise at the top.

This is what they call the high wing.

At 3560 lbs., the ZR1 is heavier than a Z06. Mostly due to its four extra radiators.

The 'halo' hood actually lets the engine's carbon-fiber intercooler cover poke out into the air.

The new supercharger has 52 percent more volume than the blower on the Z06, which means it was simply too tall for the C7's engine bay.

So, they cut a giant hole, decorated with exposed carbon fiber.

They also optimized the airflow to improve cooling.

Under all the fancy composites, it's still a pushrod, overhead-valve engine, although with GM's first dual-injection head, complete with their largest ever throttle bodies at 95mm, a dry-sump bottom.

This is what an estimated 950 lbs. of downforce looks like.

It's a complex wing bolted straight to the chassis via aluminum beams.

Order an all-black ZR1, and see how much of a Batmobile it becomes.

All the exterior trim is exposed carbon.

1.5-inch wider front tires and equally monstrous two-piece carbon ceramic rotors, with fixed six-piston aluminum calipers.

The ride height remains the same, if you can believe it.

That's the track-ready front splitter. Not small, but it would have been much larger if it wasn't for the ZR1's new underwing.

Even the steering wheel is made of carbon.

No cargo space is taken up by the wing assembly.

It remains a hatchback.

Hitting the dealers in spring, the ZR1 is not a limited edition model, although Chevy doesn't expect to sell more than 3000 units a year. The engines are all hand-built.
